Renascent Photography bio picture
  • HELLO!

    Hi! My name is Renee and I love to laugh. I love Jesus, and adventures, and randomness, and rhyming, and sunshine. I really enjoy sunshine. I also love people, which really makes photography such a wonderful gift! I love to capture you being you, and telling your story through beautiful images. And you can bet we're going to have fun doing it!

    I'm based in Eugene, Oregon, but travel a lot and look forward to taking you with me everywhere I go - AND going everywhere you take me!

    Thanks for stopping by the blog! I look forward to getting to know you. I look forward to sharing important moments with you. And I consider it an honor to do so.

    Can't wait to meet you!

newborn :: jackson

whoa, whoa, whoa.

maybe i just have babies on the brain since my little niece lilia renee was just born (yes, that middle name is after me), but when i was looking through what i needed to blog (which makes me feel overwhelmed, but we’ll get there one day), i realized: I NEVER SHARED JACKSON WITH YOU! i thought i had, but i sure didn’t!

i’m not sure which is a bigger travesty – the really long, run-on sentence i just wrote, or the fact that i’ve kept this to myself. so here you go! i love this family. love ‘em to pieces. hope you do, too!

family :: mike + samantha + cannon

impromptu dance sessions. a bee sting. lots of kisses. peek-a-boo. crocodile tears. sprinklers, spiders and a saucy little mister. this shoot had it all! i first met this family a year ago, when cannon was much smaller and mike didn’t have a beard. couldn’t help but like them. A LOT. so i was super excited to get to meet up with them again on a recent oregon trip. 

thanks for making this so fun (even though cannon wasn’t a fan of the cam this time) and being such troopers. i love your family and can’t wait to see you guys again soon!

Melissa McClenathan - Hard to believe he didn’t like the camera-you captured so many great shots! Love them all!!

engaged :: nell + brian

sometimes you meet a couple, and you just don’t want to stop hanging out. not only were these two super fun to work with, but they were troopers (notice all the flowers + grass? brian has bad allergies), easy to shoot and absolutely head over heels for each other! we had a blast and i can’t wait to celebrate with them in costa rica in february! 

i’m not gonna lie. pretty stoked to see what kind of adventures you two end up in together. excited to share in such a special part of your lives!

prego/newborn::cathy + jeremy + kids!

a wee bit ago, i was lucky enough to meet up with this great family! cathy and jeremy weren’t too far away from welcoming baby rebecca and her big sister caitlin was excited to meet her, too! so we wandered around a beautiful spot and had a grand old time!

and here she is! so teeny tiny, so beautiful, and lucky to be born into a great family. meet little miss rebecca.

thanks for letting me capture some super-duper important memories! all the best to your precious family.
