My son and me, March 2013 - Photo by Jenni Price

My name is Sarah Bettey. I am a wife, a mother to my son, a photographer and a blogger. I grew up in Welches, Oregon, which is located at the foothills of Mt Hood. I now live in Wood Village, a close eastern suburb of Portland, Oregon. Wood Village is located at the mouth of the beautiful Columbia River Gorge, and is only a quick 40 minute drive from my Mt Hood area stomping grounds.

I have been a photographer in some capacity for as long as I can remember. Hood Photography truly began to take shape back in 2004. Back then, I had been specializing in maternity portraits and wedding photography. Eventually I stepped away from doing such events as much, and now only do portraiture on very rare occasion for select people of my choosing. I discovered that my true passion is in nature, landscape and macro photography. Since making that transition, I have shared my photography and writings here on this website, as well as on Travel Oregon, Oregon's Mt Hood Territory, and All Trips - Mt Hood, among many others.

This website's goal is to share the area I am lucky enough to live in with the world through the continuing development and expression of my photography. Hopefully you are an avid nature lover like me, as much of what you will see here is devoted to the great outdoors. I live in a great area, which is centrally located between deserts, mountains and ocean beaches.

Photography posted here is mainly of the Mt Hood and Columbia Gorge areas, but includes travel pictures from nearby locations such as Portland, Hood River, the Oregon Coast, central Oregon, Salem and more.

Thank you for joining me here! Please enjoy my online portfolio and experience the Mt Hood to Portland, Oregon area and beyond thorough my eyes!
