Aaron and Leah were one of the first couples I photographed for the Camas WA neighborhood publication, Prune Hill Living.  I couldn’t have had a better first couple.  These two were recently engaged and oh so in love.  Not to mention they are a great looking couple.  Their backyard was a perfect location, with tons of colorful blooms since it was still Spring.  I could have photographed them all day, they were so natural in front of the camera:)

Angela & Tim wanted some fun portraits for their home of them with their dogs in their lovely Pacific Northwest surroundings.  So, that’s what we set out to do at Mt Tabor Park in SE Portland!  It was a drizzly, misty day, but that didn’t stop us from all having fun and making the most out of our session!  In fact, if you’re trying to capture the Portland “feel”, it’s almost better that it rains, right?  These two were so adorable and obviously still so in love.  Since they’ve already been married for a bit, you can see how comfortable they are with each other.  Angela actually found out she was expecting, shortly after we did this photo shoot, so I also have some newborn photos to share of their new baby girl!  Keep an eye out on the blog over the weeks to see those too:)

In Portland I often have to shoot in the rain.  It doesn’t really bother me, but coming from NC where a little rain means frizzy hair and pneumonia, I’m always surprised when my Portland clients aren’t bothered by it either.  It was a super rainy day when I met up with this family at Hoyt Arboretum in NW Portland OR.  It actually stopped raining right when we met in the parking lot.  It didn’t start raining again until we had walked all the way up the hill.  So, we just went for it, and I’m so glad we did.  I think a little rain makes the images more true to the pacific Northwest, and sometimes nice sunny photos just get boring;) These guys were so much fun to photograph.  They were really laid back and all very responsive to my posing.  They loved their rainy day portraits as much as I do and ended up getting a big canvas collection for their blank living room walls.  Tracy emailed me a photo of it after it was installed and it looked AH-Mazing!  I love it when I’m able to provide families with meaningful pieces of portrait art that they can enjoy for years and years.

Jaci and Ryan are super adorable and fun!  They wanted a fun colorful neighborhood for their engagement portraits so we explored the Alberta Arts District in NE Portland OR for their session last Spring.  I loved Jaci’s outfit, and especially loved the color of her skirt!  They were full of laughter the entire time, which makes for great authentic candid images.  These two are actually expecting their first baby later this year, so expect to see more of these two and their new arrival pretty soon!

Since yesterday was Mother’s day, I thought it fitting to share this Mom & Kids photo shoot that I did last Spring at Mt Tabor.   There’s nothing wrong with wanting to have portraits of just you with your children, without dad, or vice versa, and what better way to make it happen than in time for Mother’s Day?!  I loved working with this sweet family, and seeing how much they loved on mom and each other.  And their yellow and green colors were perfect for the springtime!
