First of all, there have been some big changes over the past week. I have officially decided to change my name from Hood Photography to Sarah Bettey Photography. There were quite a few reasons for the switch, but the main one is that I have long been in a new chapter of my photographic life. I chose the name Hood Photography to represent me back when I had practically no experience. I hastily chose a name that covered my main location of photography, which was up on Mt. Hood where I had lived my whole life up until that point. But I was only in my early 20's then and a lot has changed since that time. I feel using my own name as my "brand" better shows what I do now. Sarah Bettey Photography reflects my true photographic passion, one that emphasizes my own goals of constantly gathering more knowledge of the craft. I use the outdoor adventures I take with my 4 year old son, family and friends as a backdrop for my photo opportunities. My photography is a direct result personal life experiences I have with those closest to me when I am capturing those images.
Our first adventure under the new moniker was to Rowena Plateau. The balsamroot and lupine are in bloom, and the blue skies above provided a warm, inviting environment for us to spend some time on Sunday. Our old friend Mt. Hood peaked at us over the hills in the distance beyond the throngs of wildflowers.
