About Me

My name is Cher, and I am somewhat nomadic.

Photographer based in Portland, Oregon.
Willing to travel.

I dont have a voice in my head.  It's hard for me to meditate because of this, but it's something I actually find comforting.

I'm a Capricorn, and with that comes the natural drive to find the career that makes me feel complete.  Photography is something that I've always flown back to time and time again.

I'm an INFJ personality type, making me an introverted extrovert, so I love one on one and small groups and gain energy from personal connections.

Hobbies of mine include bubble baths, going for walks in the woods, and making playlists for people.

I've been taking photos since 2009, and am a completely self taught photographer.  I pride myself in how far I've come and continue to go in my work. I look forward to continuing to grow in this medium for the forseeable future.

The camera is a tool that I use as a form of magic, to create something that transports the viewer into a real point in time with as much authenticity as I can muster.  I will always do my best to communicate what I see by using the skills I have acquired over the years that I have been honing this craft.

I find true value in being able to capture the fleeting moments that pass by us every day.  I aim to manifest your moments into beautiful photographs you can share and cherish for years to come.

The goal I have when photographing is to capture the mood of a moment.  I want to show the world an accurate representation of what I see while I look through my viewfinder.  I love being able to see something that may have been overlooked or forgotten, and maybe show you a side of what is going on that you don't usually see.

My current camera set up is with the Sony Alpha series.  This set up offers me a lot of versatility in what I am able to capture, ranging from Portraits to Landscape to Architecture both interior and exterior.

Lets treat your love like it's a movie.

I'm constantly inspired by the  quirky, magical, nostalgic, and cinematic moments in life and hope to capture that in my photographs for everyone.

My approach to taking pictures with you would be to set up a scene with you doing something you love, and direct you into into some memorable moments while I capture it with my camera. My favorite spots to do shoots is the Oregon Coast and the many city parks within Portland!
