Liz and Olesya wanted to do something special for their mother’s birthday this year… and what mother doesn’t want a portrait of her gorgeous daughters to hang on the wall? Especially their mother, who really loves photographs and has them hanging all over their house! Perfect! Oh, and today is her birthday… Happy Birthday Liz & Olesya’s Mom, hope it’s wonderful!
It had been a gorgeous sunshiny day right up until it was time for the session. Naturally with the unpredictable spring weather in Portland, it was no big surprise for the day to turn dark gray, misty, and cold on the drop of a dime. But the huge trees at the Mt Tabor Volcano Park in the middle of the city offered a great refuge from the sprinkles. At least until the huge trees in turn also made it get dark outside very quickly! Then we headed to the opening at the top of the volcano to catch the last of the evening’s light.
I think this is my favorite photo of the year so far!
This photo comes in a close second for favorite photo of the year as well!
