Now They are Four

The Varuska’s found me early in my photography career and trusted me with first birthday photos of their darling twin girls.  I brought my daughter Alli with me to assist with the photo session. While there, we discovered that our girls shared the same birthday.  Every spring Alli and I look forward to another birthday session with the Varuska family. […]

Orthopedic Northwest

The providers (doctors and Physician Assistants) at Orthopedic Northwest in Tualatin are kind, funny, and smart.  It was a privilege to photograph them individually and in groups.  If you live locally and need a good orthopedic doc or PA, look them up.       #orthopedicsurgeons #contemporarycorporate #professionalheadshots

Beautiful Exhaustion

The Hartmann’s are in the Beautiful Exhaustion phase of parenting.  A curious two-year-old and a perfect little newborn who both need 100% of their time and attention every second they are awake, which is more than they want to be because what newborn sleeps well for their parents?  It’s beautiful.  And it’s exhausting.  And the Hartmann’s are doing it so well.  I […]

the Davidson’s

I met Amanda three years ago through our mutual friend.  She is one of the funniest people I know – so quick with her sharp wit.  She has me laughing every time I see her.  Underneath the dry humor is a very kind, thoughtful caring soul.  Amanda pays attention.  She listens.  She empathizes.  She remembers and follows up.  I’m so glad […]

Darling Grandchildren

The Haikin’s keep sharing their family with me and it makes oh so happy.  I mean seriously… look how sweet their grandchildren are? #portraits #jodistilpphotography #infants #toddlers #threesiblings #springportraits

Six Kids!

This is the third time I’ve had the privilege of photographing the Bizeau family at their home on Chehalem Mountain.  Aren’t they cute? One of my favorite aspects of my job is watching my client’s families grow up in front of my lens. Thank you Bizeau family for braving the fickle weather and shooting your session between rain showers.  I hope to […]


Claire is graduating from nursing school at the top of her class.  She is smart and kind – just the combo you want for a nurse.  Congratulations Claire! #nursingschool #nursegraduate #collegegrad #nursingschool


Maddy is a soon-to-be graduate from Oregon State University.  We squeezed in a quick Simple Offering when she was home so her parents could have some updated portraits to celebrate her big accomplishment.  Isn’t she cute?  Her fun personality comes through in the images.  Congratulations Maddy!  Good luck in your next adventure. #collegegrad #oregonstateuniversity #graduationphotos #portraits #jodistilpphotography #tellyourstory

Evergreen Home Loans

The staff at Evergreen Home Loans in Lake Oswego wanted a couple fresh and modern group photographs that matched the vibe of their office and their personalities.  We used their office building and the green space surrounding it to capture some great images.  Smart. Professional. Efficient.   If you need a home loan, make sure to give their team a call. […]

40 Years of Marriage: Leaving a Legacy

Cindy and John celebrated 40 years of marriage this year.  What a legacy to leave their children and grandchildren.  I had the privilege of photographing Cindy and John, along with their two sons and their families to commemorate this milestone. The morning of their session was abnormally cold for the Willamette Valley, with temps in the mid twenties, but incredibly […]
