Summer senior pictures in Oregon are absolutely stunning! This is a great time to get wildflower photos on mount hood, beautiful sunsets on rolling hills and on the coast, explore your favorite forests and rivers, & get the perfect golden hour photos. 

Photographing seniors in OR, CA, + WA. Thinking about traveling from out of state? In 2022/2023, seniors traveled from Colorado, Washington, Georgia, Idaho, Minnesota & Alaska to take their senior photos with me! Reach out if you're interested :) I will be in Colorado, Wyoming, & Utah this July and am available for one senior shoot in each state. Reach out for dates!! 

This is such a beautiful time to celebrate how far you've come and where you're going next. Summer senior pictures are a great way to capture this monumental time in your life. 
As your senior photographer, I help you to showcase the unique, talented human that you are! We'll plan a personalized, curated shoot and capture the photos most important to you. Whether it's the wildflowers at Mount Hood, the Oregon Coast, or the Columbia River Gorge, let's go on an adventure together!

I HELP your personality shine through your senior photos

I'm Emily!

Important Notes about SUMMER senior pictures:

1. I'm only taking limited amounts of shoots at each location mentioned below, so if you have your heart set on a specific location, make sure to book on Feb 1st when dates open.
2. Locations/dates available are based on weather/bloom schedule, etc. Please be as flexible as possible.
3. Please note that for some locations you must book an adventure session versus a local session. Keep that in mind for your budget!

SUMMER senior pictures process

let's do this! What next?

From the very beginning she was willing to answer all my questions so quickly and made sure that I was completely ready for my shoot. The day of was even better, she was so sweet and made me feel incredibly comfortable. While listening to music and taking pictures Emily did an amazing job of making the entire experience something special that will forever be treasured. My favorite part was just being able to be myself, she made sure she that I was comfortable and confident the entire time. I loved that the entire photo shoot was completely personalized and exactly what I wanted it to be, Emily made my dreams come to life. Getting to see my preview photos so quickly was amazing, she worked so fast to get them to me, and I was definitely not disappointed. They were absolutely beautiful and so dreamy. I would 100% book with her again and would definitely recommend to everyone. My entire experience was so special and Emily was so so amazing, I’m so lucky she was the one to do my shoot. 

"My senior shoot with Emily was everything that I ever dreamed of it being.

Class of 2024




Emily collaborated with Ava to really understand her personality by researching her Instagram and Pinterest boards which was a fun and empowering process. She suggested beautiful locations and delivered gorgeous images in a very short period of time. We could not have imagined how fun the whole process would be and will treasure these photographs forever. Thank you, Emily!”

"Working with Emily for our daughter’s Senior photography was an amazing experience.

Emily made me feel so beautiful and confident during my shoot! We talked the entire time which really made me less nervous and more calm in front of the camera. She understood the exact photos I wanted and checked with me throughout the shoot to make sure I was liking them, and that they were lining up with my vision!

She is well versed in posing, making you feel like a star, and everything in between (so no stress especially if you feel a little nervous in front of the camera). Her work is beautiful and I love my photos; I highly recommend Emily!”

"Emily is a wonderful photographer and a joy to be around!

I first found out about Emily through Instagram. I just absolutely loved her style of photos from the way she edits them to the amazing outdoor locations! Emily was so helpful for the entire process, from finding outfits and a location, to receiving my photos. She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera and my photos look amazing and very natural. One of my favorite things about my shoot was the location, which was on Mt. Hood. The really cool thing was that Emily was able to incorporate the mountain in the background so all together it just looks perfect! I would totally recommend her because of how great the photos turned out and how unique and personalized the photoshoot was. Communication was always very smooth with Emily. She helped with every step of the way, so I felt really good about the whole process. Overall, everything went so great with Emily and I couldn’t be more happy with how my senior photo experience turned out!

It all depends on how bad - if it’s going to downpour and make you uncomfortable or ruin my gear, we will always reschedule. If it’s more of a misty/moody day, we will definitely still shoot! In fact the moodier and mistier weather can often create the most beautiful photos. Those overcast days are some of my favorite!

I use a site called Pic-time to deliver all my galleries! After I've finished editing your photos, I will send over an email that will contain a link to your online gallery where you can access all of your images in web-size and high-resolution. You will be able to download them from there using a phone or a laptop. 

The LOCAL session includes 70 images. The ADVENTURE package includes 100 images. The BIG ADVENTURE package includes 200 images.
