|Me and my son, 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. Back in 2004, I started Hood Photography. I had been working with and for a wide variety of clients, 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. I want continue to develop my talents and express myself through my photography. This website's goal to keep some of my old photography alive, and a place to share my newer photos.
I am an avid nature lover, and 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 beyond!
I have shared my photography and writings on Travel Oregon, Oregon's Mt Hood Territory, and All Trips - Mt Hood's websites, among many others.
