Recent Portrait Sessions

As a family portrait photographer, located in Bend, OR, I enjoy capturing families of all sizes. I appreciate the love and joy found in interacting with the families I photograph. Each family is unique and exudes its signature traits and energy. Whether it’s darling, wiggly kiddos, or grown children with their folks, it’s a blast. I love capturing the essence of each family in unique locations that reflect who they are. We can find a backdrop of gorgeous fall leaves or the crispness of snow. Whatever location you choose will work to showcase how special your family is. 

Planning Your Session

During the shoot, it’s my goal to make you and yours feel comfortable as I work with you to create natural, unforced moments. As a family man with a wonderful daughter of my own, I understand how to put littles at ease and am patient to let them find their way during the shoot. I get it. Some kiddos are shy and others don’t want to stand still, so I am committed to snapping moments through my lens to explore exactly who you all are.

It always amazes me how I see intimate family connections and bonds through my lens. Often, they come in unexpected ways. Whether through a look, a tender handhold, or unexpected giggles at just the right moment. I hope that these photos will be something you treasure down the road.  Let me mark a season of accomplishment, a birthday, or an anniversary. Be yourselves and enjoy the shoot. The result will be incredible photos to hang on the wall or set as your lock screen, something that will bring a smile to your face.
