Melissa & Nick were married on a beautiful summer day in a cabin on Mt. Hood. Photographing weddings is such an honor – you see families come together and happiness is everywhere! Melissa & Nick were no exception; they had dated for many years and were so happy to be getting married in a small backyard venue, surrounded by family & friends. Congratulations, Melissa and Nick!  I wish you many, many years of happiness!

I am loving Grace’s senior photos! We photographed in Portland for her session and they are so pretty. It was a busy day – the city was hustling and bustling, bringing a fun energy and colors to the photos. Grace chose 3 looks  – a striking black jumpsuit and 2 super cute dresses.  She is an avid skier and on the West Linn Ski Team,  so we photographed her in the city with her beloved skis just to add to the fun. I love it when the seniors incorporate their hobbies with the photos. Grace was so wonderful to photograph with and I just love her photos.

If you are attending West Linn High School (WLHS) Baccalaureate on June 2nd, that is the perfect time to get  quality Graduate Photos of your Grad with family and friends. The Graduation Ceremony at UofP Chiles Center is very crowded, chaotic, and very often nearly impossible to get a good picture of your son or daughter in their cap and gown. On the other hand, the Baccalaureate ceremony is held at the high school, and you are able to schedule a time slot for a photo of the grad along with their family or buddies.

Photos can be scheduled either before the ceremony (6-6:30pm) or afterwards (8-8:45pm).

Please email me at kerrisphotos@msn.com or call (503)382-9052 to schedule your time.

Congratulations to all the WLHS Seniors!

With Wedding season upon us, I am so happy to post Anna & Cameron’s Wedding Day! Their wedding was so fun and beautiful! They were married up in the Gorge at Mt. Hood Bed & Breakfast. It is such a beautiful spot and we were able to capture awesome photos & thankfully one photo of Mt. Hood that had been hidden most of the day due to the fires in the area. But that didn’t stop us from having a wonderful day. Anna’s dress is so beautiful, the long train is stunning! I just love how playful they are and you can just see the love flowing everywhere as they danced the night away…

       

I loved exploring the park with Isabelle, and capturing her smile! She was so fun to spend time with, she has a bright future ahead of her and I wish her all the best. Here are a few samples from her senior photo session.

We took Jenna’s Senior Photo Shoot last summer by the river on a super hot day, but you would never know it. She looks lovely and relaxed in her cranberry and blue colors.  She brought along her beautiful black lab who was more than happy to jump in the river after his photo shoot! Her sister came along too – it was great to see Kayla again since I photographer her Senior Photos a few years ago.  Enjoy the rest of your senior year, Jenna!

Sammy’s grandmother scheduled individual photo sessions for each of her 4 grandchildren to make a wall collage celebrating them. The result is a beautiful collection of photos highlighting everyone’s personality. Sammy flew up from LA for Christmas and we were able to squeeze in a photo shoot on this sunny winter day. She was very brave to pose for me and her grandmother in 40 degree weather.  Sammy just graduated from college in January so we can consider these Grad Photos as well. Thanks for being such a trooper Sammy!

Forest’s grandmother scheduled individual photo sessions for each of her 4 grandchildren to create a wall collage celebrating them. We photographed Forest in September just when the colors were starting to change. His red hair in the sunlight makes him pop. He is looking so handsome in his sport coat & jeans. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom to see all four grandchildren. Enjoy!

Mckenzie’s grandmother scheduled individual photo sessions for each of her 4 grandchildren to make a wall collage celebrating them. Mckenzie’s photoshoot captured the gorgeous fall lighting and helps accentuate her blonde hair and blue eyes. She just graduated from Portland State, and after getting her in multiple outfits, we did a mini ‘Graduation Photoshoot’ in her cap and gown. You can see the grad book we made for a graduation souvenir. Enjoy her photos and be sure to see the four grandchildren at the end!

Andrew’s grandmother scheduled individual photo sessions for each of her 4 grandchildren to make a wall collage celebrating them. Here is Andrew, one of Julie’s grandsons. She was thrilled to celebrate Andrew with photos before he went off to college to major in music. I only wish he had brought his saxophone. He’s showing multiple looks from super business-like to casual. Be sure to scroll all the way down to see all four grandchildren. Enjoy!
