summer time family portrait sessions in portland oregon Summer is the perfect time for an outdoor family session.

2015 high school senior photographer

I can not think of a better way to kick off urban photography’s 2015 high school senior photos season than with ceana. Her Mom, Melina (who I have  know since Jr. High) didn’t let her disclose our relationship when she applied to be a Senior Rep for Urban Photography so she had to try to get it on her own merit & oh MY did she!  Ceana is one amazing young woman with tons of accomplishments. I am impressed by both her and her mom. More to come……… just a sneak peek 🙂   Photo credit of the session taking place: http://www.lialuxphoto.com/ Natalia Amari...
