SAMANTHA SHANNON PHOTOGRAPHY

​It might be the fact that it has been cloudy and in the 60’s all week (month? year? #oregon), but I’m having a hard time believing it’s actually SUMMER.  Like, not early June, but JULY!  It hasn’t felt summery at ALL and so I am having the hardest time getting in the groove of summer.  […]

Family photos in a field in Newberg, Oregon | Hillsboro family photographer

It’s April, and that means I’m right at the cusp of the busy photography season.  It’s been a slow winter on the blog, full of real-life behind the scenes work like updating print materials for 2018 (FINALLY finished!), taxes (BOOOOO), and taking courses for continuing education (hurrah!). ​Personally, I’ve also been trying to be more […]

It’s been quiet over here this last month on the blog, but not in real life–we had Camille and Michael’s Troutdale House wedding over Thanksgiving weekend, then December was spent editing that wedding and doing all that fun end-of-year stuff for the business.  This month, I’ve been revamping the Bridal Guide (2018 brides–keep an eye […]

I thought I’d take a quick break from sharing all of the […]

U-pick at Smith Berry Barn in Scholls | Hillsboro Family Photographer

Who’s excited about the million+1 straight days of rain/snow/ice we’ve had recently?? I’ve been using this *extended* indoor time to up my indoor portrait game—so we can tackle small family sessions, milestone sessions for kids, and headshot sessions in your very own home!  You might think your home isn’t photo-ready, or that you have to […]

Winter is a slower time for me–it’s the time shooting slows way down and I have time to plan what kinds of big dreams are going to happen over the next year.  I also have time to focus on my family, and this afternoon I spent some time finishing up our 2016 family album! I […]
