A tribute to an AMAZING man - Children's Photographer - Portland, Oregon

Just after Christmas, we lost an amazing friend, father, community member and overall person in this world. We went to his memorial service yesterday and I was so touched by the beautiful stories people had to share about Jeff and how he touched so many people in this world with his laugther, generosity, and beautiful spirit. I had the opportunity of photographing his daughter during a therapy session on her horse this past fall. The connection she shared with her dad touched me greatly. I have posted a few images from that session that will stay with me in my memory for many years to come.

The sweetest little chicks..

So I had to run a couple things to a photographer friend of mine and she wanted to know if the kids wanted to see her little chickens. Oh my, they were so cute and so good with the kids. They even let the kids pick them up and hold them. it was so sweet. The kids are already asking when we can go back to visit. Thanks so much Alicia!! The kids loved it!

Switching Computers / Portland, Oregon Children's Photographer

I am in the process of making the switch to a mac, so please be patient with me for the next week. I currently just have my laptop so only some files are accessible right now. I will do my very best to continue work as usual, but just wanted to let you know in advance. Thank you so much for your patience!

Have a wonderful day!!

Such fun energy! Portland, Oregon Family Photographer

These little ones were such troopers. We had a great day out just before Christmas and it was cold. They handled the cold and little spits of rain so well! Their images reflect the energy and joy they have within themselves! It was such a pleasure to work with this family! Thank you!!

Ahh... happy!! Portland OR Children's Photographer

This picture just makes me melt... not for sure when or where, but you will be seeing this adorable little guy again. I think it might be my deep underlying DREAM for curly hair or something like that.. but this little guy just melts my heart! Just adorable! Have a happy day!

Happy New Year.... I wish for you much happiness and beauty in 2010!

I sometimes have such a difficult time listening to the news and business analysts that project such negativity with the economy and the future of our lives. I know that many people have been and continue to face such hardships right now, especially financially. This is real and I know that firsthand. But...I also know that focusing on all the negative aspects of the world never helped anyone move in a more positive direction. I came across something that Seth Godin wrote and it just hit home to me this morning... He said...

"Fear mongering is a lousy profession, one that ought to be regulated, if not banned. I'm more in favor of hope mongering. 2010 is the year that the world will change. In fact, every year is that year, but this is the only time we'll get to change the world this time."

May 2010 be filled with much love, hope, and most of all a desire to focus on all the beauties that surround you.

Much Love... Annie
