SAMANTHA SHANNON PHOTOGRAPHY

If you’ve been cruising the blog for a while, you know there is a special place in my heart for Oregon country weddings!  I love a good field, a barn, rolling hills with valley views, and plenty of space for a dance party!  Luckily, my couples are on the same page as me–they love venues […]

Playing catch up on blogging fall sessions is just fine with me, because I get to relive all of these incredible moments with my beautiful fall families!  This sweet family showed up for their family photos in Newberg ready to cuddle and laugh.  It was PERFECTION!  We always chat about what my clients want in […]

This week has been so fun, going through all of last year’s work!  I’ve been pulling favorites from each session and trying to narrow it down so this won’t be a GIANT post, but it’s so hard!  I was blessed with some adorable clients in 2019, who showed up ready to love on their families, […]

HEY!  It’s 2020!  2019 was a whirlwind of a year, and I’m so excited to see what 2020 will bring.  I remember planning out my goals when I first started this business in 2011 (because you know your Type A girl is listing out her 1, 3, 5, 9, and 10 year goals), and I […]

How is it already the end of November?? July through October is my busy season between weddings and fall family portrait season, so those months always go by in a bit of a blur! Now that things are slowing down, I’m excited to catch up on some blogging–I’ve been working with some freaking ADORABLE families […]

We’re lucky here in the PNW to enjoy all four seasons–a sometimes snowy winter, a blossom-filled spring, a warm summer, and all the fall colors in autumn!  One of the trade offs though, is that we get a lot of RAIN!  If you’ve been here any amount of time, this isn’t news to you…and if […]

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of light, bright, airy photos!  And you know what?  I love them like that ALL YEAR ROUND!  I may live in the rainy PNW, but something about a warm, bright photo just feels like HOME!  When I coach my clients through what to wear for the photo session, […]

Years ago, at another wedding, a little flower girl and a ring bearer walked down the aisle.  A lot happened in between then and now, but those two sweet kids grew up, fell in love, and now shared their own wedding day nestled in the view of Mt. Hood!  Kaitlin and Tylor have known each […]

I love when a client contacts me with a vision for their photos that is totally in line with my style!  Alaina contacted me to schedule a relaxed, light and airy family photo session in a summer field and I was ALL about that!  Alaina helped that vision come to life with her family’s outfit […]

Can you believe that summer is almost OVER??  August has been just a whirlwind: besides a ton of family adventures, I’ve also been so lucky to connect with some of the best clients for family sessions, senior portraits, and weddings!  The end of summer is the busiest time of the year–it’s still wedding season, there […]
