We love it when opportunities arise where traveling to beautiful places is necessary for a shoot!  The Wilkinson family deserves nothing less than the gorgeous background of Pacific City Oregon to shape their family photos.  The Wilkinson’s carry a laid back yet energetic energy which makes for a seamless shoot (proven by the photographs!).  I love the varying landscapes around the coast, like the long stretches of sand, the tall grass, the rough rocks that invite you to climb on without a care, and I think we hit them all here.  The family’s gorgeous smiles are what make these photographs shine.  You can’t beat a sunset like that!  Thank you Wilkinson family for this captivating session!

What makes for a successful afternoon?  Blue tutu’s, trendy stripes, a rose garden, and one sweet family!  For this family  photo shoot at the International Test Rose Gardens in Washington Park in Portland Oregon, the Moloney family showed us their sweet and fun side while prancing in the grass and getting lost in the garden.  It was a day to stop and smell the roses!  The Moloney’s were such a delight and easy to work with which shows in the photos below.  I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

It was a gorgeous sunny day for Rachel & Eric’s wedding at Heisen House Vineyards in Battle Ground Washington.  The venue was such an adorable little winery out in the country, with a HUGE pecan tree next to all the grapevines, under which the couple married.  It was perfect.  All the guests spread out on quilts in the yard, underneath the tree, to watch the ceremony, and afterwards headed to the barn for the party.  There was so much love and friendship radiating throughout the whole day, and Rachel & Eric both looked stunning in white.  Such a great looking couple!   We were so happy to be a part of the day and wish them all the best!

Be sure to watch the slideshow below for the full story of their day, then scroll down to see some of my favorite images from the day.  Many thanks to Robb for capturing video for the slideshow!  Enjoy!

A sun filled afternoon surrounded by nature’s best backdrop: water falls, treas and green rolling hills in the distance.  This made for the perfect backdrop for the adorable Adcock family photoshoot in Camas, WA.  Dressed in matching white tees and classic denim, this family fills the frame with true Pacific Northwest style and charm.  The Adcocks were able to show off their adventurous side while scaling rocks over a trickling creek.  We loved photographing this  family in this rustic yet serene landscape!
