I do........ Polka Dot Photography style

Shot a lovely wedding last weekend. Man they are a ton of work whew! I felt like I got run over by a train for about two days. I think that means I need to work out but whatever I don't have time to exercise. Maybe I will just do a wedding once a week and that will keep in shape. ha ha. Anyways here are a few pictures from the day and thank you so much Jody and Cory. I had such a good time spending my day with you.

If you are looking for a wedding photographer in the Portland, OR or Vancouver, WA area please contact me {polka dot photography}. I would love to capture your special day for you.

I love Seniors and I love Taggers

We did this senior session and I have to admit my head was pretty big for ummmm the last week. How many people do you know get their senior photos done with flaming footballs and custom graffiti? Yeah didn't think so. Ty was such a sweetheart and his mom too. We had so much this day. One of my new fave places had a bunch of taggers there this time. They were doing fresh graffiti. I finally went up to them and asked if they would write Ty's name on one of the walls and told them I was doing his senior photos for next year (He is one of rep's for next year). They were hesitant at first but then happily agreed. We were so excited with the result. We took pictures by The big "Ty" writing but somehow I didn't edit that one yet so this will do for now. The shoe picture is special to mom because these were his baby shoes and his new nike's matched. She had to bring both and I am so glad. I love when people have meaningful ideas. I hope this meets your expectation Lori and Ty. I am so excited to be working with you two over the next year.

7 years old

He has been pleading with me to do his 7 year photos. I am such a bad mama that I have kept putting it off. I needed to scout out this new location for seniors so we did his photos finally and I am glad I waited for this location. It was so perfect for him and he loved it.

Booked for spring etc. etc.........

Just a heads up for those wanting pictures this spring that there is only ONE day left in May and June is completely booked already so contact me soon if you want the last day. I am booking now for summer session for July and later so reserve your date soon for those, as they will go quickly (especially now that I put a notice on my blog (-: ).

Also, I am new to the whole printing thing and while I order samples to show clients, I may change sizing option as well as mounting. This could change pricing just a bit on the larger prints so please bare with me while I figure out which product is the absolute best to offer you. My goal as your photographer is to offer you a unique experience that you enjoy, memories that will last a lifetime, yet still be affordable. I will also be adding some amazing options including coffee table books, gallery wrapped canvas, and custom cards for the holiday or announcements. Check for peeks of those over the next few weeks. I am so excited to show these off.

If anyone has sent me an email in the last 36 hours or so, or have tried to contact me, my computer crashed. I had the blue screen of death. It was a very scary moment for me, especially when I saw the words "deletion complete". Can you imagine? ugh. Anyways all was well (for the most part) and after toying with it for the last few days it is now ok to use and should not happen again. So anyways if you tried to contact me, my phone has also been being whacky and not getting service in my house so please call or email me again so we can chat or whatever you were needing. (0:

Fat baby's birthday is Sunday and this is a busy weekend of picture taking as well so I will try to post some peeks soon that I have been promising. Oh and I updated the website with some new pictures. Go lookie.
