Where the Party’s At

April Williams Weddings 0 Comments

Forget New Year’s, this wedding was the party of the century.   There was something for everyone.  Do you fancy a snow cone?  Check.  How about a hoppin’ party with a DJ who’s got it?  Check.  Fantastic food brought to you by one of Portland’s best food carts?  Check.  A truck full of beer on tap?  Yes, literally a refrigerated …

Perfectly Portland

I’ve been a little busy the last few months…or a lot busy.  Believe me when I say I am NOT complaining!  Thank goodness for busy.  It really does keep me out of trouble.  I’ve been in what I have dubbed the “wedding tunnel”, which is exactly how it sounds, very wedding focused.  Yea, because I love, love, love weddings!  The …

A Few of my Favorite Things

I have been dying to blog about this portrait session, but I have been in the throes of wedding season and just have had my head focused on weddings, weddings, weddings.  Which, by the way, I love and don’t blog enough about I’ve realized.  They really are one of my favorite things to photograph.  I think partly because, really, my favorite …

Cool by Association

I am not the cool one in my family, cute, sometimes funny, but not the cool one.  The cool one is my brother.  I’m not saying this in a jealous way, I’m saying this in a “yeah, I’m with the band” kind of way and in this case, that statement is completely true.  Part of what makes my brother cool …

Spring Installment 2

While I know that it’s the middle of June, and I don’t think technically spring anymore, I had just a few more things to say about spring. First, I already miss it. Second, there’s a field I pass on my way to church every Sunday that, in the spring, takes my breath away.  There are two places in the world …

Go Get ‘Em Boys

Earlier this year amongst all the rain, I desperately needed just two hours of rain-free shooting.  The thing is, I had a portrait session I needed to get perfect.  The Dillon boys, Jake and Brian, were getting ready to present themselves to the worlds of acting and modeling and I needed to get it right.  You can’t just show up …

Spring Installment 1 (hopefully there will be a 2nd)

Today, I was planning to blog about something completely different. I think I’ve fallen head over heels in love with spring.  It’s shockingly beautiful when you really look at it.  This picture of pink trees is the view I get when I turn left onto Mill Plain from my house.  Something so completely mundane matched with something so absolutely stunning.  I …

A Girl’s Best Friend

April Williams Uncategorized 0 Comments

Okay, so maybe that’s misleading, this isn’t particularly about diamonds, but it is about jewelry.  Also, misleading because we all know we wouldn’t give up our real best friends for all things sparkly, but jewelry really is so wonderful!  That being said, I sometimes work with one of my favorite clients, Diana Acuesta, a jewelry designer who continually amazes me …
