Samaha Photography » Portland Oregon Newborn, Child, and Senior Portrait Photography

It’s been almost five years since we moved to the Portland metro area and in honor of our “Portlandiversary” I’ve decided to revisit some of my family’s favorite memories.  

In December 2010, I gathered up the kids, my husband, the camera, and my reflector and headed to a gorgeous patch of birch trees (at least I think they’re birch trees) in order to take the kids’ portraits.  I drive by this patch of trees almost everyday and love it just as much as I did when I chose it for our portrait session almost five years ago.

It’s been almost five years since we moved to the Portland metro area and in honor of our “Portlandiversary” I’ve decided to revisit some of my family’s favorite memories.  

When we first moved my here, my daughter was 7 yrs old and entering second grade; my son was 9 yrs old and entering fourth grade.  This year they will be entering the seventh and ninth grades.  Yes, my firstborn will be in high school come September.  I’m really not sure how that happened.

 

Growing up in Phoenix, my children had never experienced the changing of leaves and October temperatures were often still into the high 90’s, so you can imagine their delight (and mine) when the leaves around our Tigard home began not only changing color but also floating to the ground.  I had to be very careful when selecting costumes so that my children wouldn’t get overheated while out trick or treating.  I think it was the combination of the leaves, the weather, new friends that made our first Halloween here especially magical. (Well, the Harry Potter and Hermione Granger costumes may have added a touch of magic, too.)

I truly am grateful for our Portland autumns.

It’s been awhile since I’ve been here…do you still remember me?  I’ve had a busy winter what with adjusting to the winter weather of Portland (after ten years in Phoenix, I forgot how to dress for cold weather) , Sam flying again, and being a full time graduate student.  But, just as the sun has finally decided to peak it’s lovely bright warm face out from behind the clouds, so have I (that’s not to say that I have either a lovely or a bright face though haha).

To welcome you all back into my bloggy little life, I have a group of some cute kids that I photographed recently down in Phoenix (thankfully, I missed the 114 degree weather by a few days!).  There are few families/children that could have brought me out of my photography hibernation, but these kids were able to do just that!

I’ve been photographing Miss A since she was 9 months old.  She’s about to turn 5 years old in a couple of months.  And you might recognized the two boys as Batman & Robin from my October sessions.  Aren’t they cute both in and out of costume?

  • altax - Nice pictures…

When I planned on coming back to Phoenix to photograph these brothers for the second time, I had no idea that I’d be photographing a couple of Super Heroes!

Aren’t they adorable?  Batman was 100% into character…which made for a very fun session.

  • Cherie - So glad to see your beautiful photography work again! I love Batman peeking around the corner!

  • Denver Photographer - lol… these kids look like such a blast to photograph!

  • Arnold M. Wilson - It is a very creative picture I like the way a photographer works with kids. Looks perfectly!

I traveled back to Phoenix this past weekend to photograph a few of my favorite families.  First up was a group of cousins…one year old, one year old, two and half years old and three years old.  It was a busy but fun morning.  I’ve photographed these two families since the oldest was a newborn so it was a blessing to come back to Phoenix for their latest sessions.

  • Denver Photographer - It’s always fun to watch clients of yours grow, and change. It certainly is rewarding.
