Patrick Grinnell: Senior Portraits

Patrick Grinnell: Senior Portraits

Today I am excited to share a preview from last weekends senior portrait session featuring Patrick Grinnell. We took some incredible shots at Rood Bridge Park in Hillsboro, OR and I can tell you that these captured so much about who this young man is! Patrick is such a vibrant young man and he has an incredibly bright future. He can tear up the long board, loves string instruments, and has a knack for blacksmithing. I was honored to capture these moments for this awesome family! Sandie Grinnell #hawkfishphoto #familyphotographer #newbornphotographer#headshotphotographer #portraitphotographer #familyiseverything

Newport, Oregon: Experience the Yaquina Bay

Newport, Oregon: Experience the Yaquina Bay

My family and I stayed at the Embarcadero Resort in Newport recently and, simply put,  this destination is a must for a weekend getaway! We enjoyed an amazing morning at the Marine Science Center before embarking on a bay cruise of the Yaquina Bay. The Marine Discovery Tours company in Newport took us on an incredible sea life cruise throughout the Yaquina Bay. I can't thank the staff enough for providing such a fun and educational experience for my family, especially my three year old son. The cruise took about 2 hours and we got to fish for crab, whale watch, and develop a much better understanding of the sea life in the Yaquina Bay. Captain Dan even let us drive the ship out in the harbor! The Lead Marine Educator on board, Delpha, was unbelievably knowledgeable and gave everyone on the cruise a much better understanding of the Yaquina Bay and all that it has to offer. Marine Discovery Tours is a must for anyone who visits this beautiful destination. 

After our sea life cruise, we had an amazing dinner at the Clearwater Restaurant, located right on the Yaquina Bay front. I can't even begin to describe how amazing this restaurant is. The service and atmosphere were incredibly inviting, while the food and specialty cocktails were out of this world. I highly recommend the "clearwater" cocktail if you love lavender . The portions were dead on and the flavors were mouthwatering. Our server, Michael, was simply amazing and Janell, the owner of this fine establishment, made us feel like we were right at home.  Our hostess, Jennifer, was incredible and established such a great first impression for us representing the Clearwater name. If you are in the area, even for just the day, you must stop by for an amazing meal and a specialty cocktail. 

 

Pittock Mansion: Portland, Oregon

PITTOCK MANSION: PORTLAND, OREGON

I drove by the Mount Calvary Cemetery and wondered what the Pittock Mansion would be like. It has been about a year now since I moved to Oregon and I've had an itch to get out and explore the local landmarks and really start to learn about the history of this new city I call home. The history of the Pittock family is truly amazing and if ever in the area, I highly recommend that you visit this landmark. The mansion itself is stunning to say the least. The views are incredible, the architecture is impressive, and the simple wonder of what it may have looked like back in the early 20th century as you walk the grounds leaves you speechless. 

The Pittock mansion is a must see landmark for anyone on a visit or a local Oregonian that has not yet had a chance to visit. You might even be surprised to learn a thing or two about this unbelievable mansion and the story it has to tell!
