I’m a daddy’s girl through and through.
I may have always been this way.
And I am not unaware that although my dad is still a rockstar at 68 - he’s 68. My grandfather, his father, died early - just six months after I was born.

The Wallace Family

The Wallace Family

They were running around having a blast tossing a giant photo reflector around like a Frisbee and generally doing what kids do.  At this point mom and dad were a little concerned but honestly with high energy children it's all about directing the energy rather than trying to stop it.  The most genuine smiles come from when kids are having fun.  So I occasionally start a game of catch with my reflectors because the kids can't hurt them.  After that the kids realize I'm there to play it changes the whole dynamic of the shoot.

Wet and Yucky outside?  It's always sunny at Troutman Photography!

Wet and Yucky outside? It's always sunny at Troutman Photography!

You know who else loves an indoor portrait studio... my clients.  Especially the parents of small children.  When it’s cold, wet, rainy and otherwise being Oregon outdoors, it’s always southern California in my studio. No runny noses, no cold, cranky kids, just warm happy smiles all day, every day.

The Cooke Family

The Cooke Family

After spending some time on family pictures with the Cookes, I can safely say they are what the English would call a bunch of nutters.  They are slightly off-bubble in a very pleasant way.  It made working with them an absolute riot and at times I was laughing so hard...

Downtown Day with Nathan in Albany

Downtown Day with Nathan in Albany

Over the last decade I photographed Mr. Nathan several times and had the pleasure of watching a chubby cheeked toddler turn into the young man you see here.  I had the pleasure of connecting early on with him and he and his family are on my list of life-long friends friends.  I love it when Nathan pops in once a year for pictures, because at this point were just two friends hanging out while taking the occasional photograph.
