I was so so so happy when this cute family wanted to do a beach session with me! We headed to Cannon Beach, Oregon on a sunny day and were greeted with the usual wind and cloudy PNW skies:) For us locals–it was definitely no big deal. It was a silly, casual, and relaxed session that left us with images truly reflecting all the sweet and SILLY personalities in this bunch.  Their oldest is leaving for college in a few days-so capturing these moments felt extra special and I am so grateful for all the beautiful love that they shared with me.

 In celebration of their darling girl’s first birthday, this evening was pure icing on a cake! She completely enamored me with her smiles the entire time and she was my easiest to photograph 1-year-old for sure.  I loved getting to know this great couple and their sweet baby.  They were so calm and relaxed together and so obviously in love with her.  It is one of my favorite things to watch a Mom and Dad and their Baby interact with one another–the love is so so abundant and it really feels like I’m witnessing the purest joy that a human can feel.  Pinch me-I feel so lucky to have my job:)

This little lady and her parents are STUNNING.  She was a tough cookie and barely gave a smile–but when she did it was certainly a show stopper.  Her squishy cheeks were an easy target for her Mom and Dad’s kisses and it was an absolute joy to capture!  Even Grandma was there to get it on the fun:) We are in the middle of a crazy heat wave and the sun was definitely shining bright–so we took to a small shaded area at Cooper Mountain Nature Park and I certainly can’t complain about the results.  Summer is here!

This family was SO fun to photograph! I couldn’t get over how FIVE children could be so well behaved–it was one of the EASIEST photo sessions I have ever done.  I mean, I said “look at me and smile” and they all LOOKED AT ME AND SMILED.  I am sure there was some bribery involved (wink-wink), but really I just think they have incredible parents who have taught them how to be comfortable in their own skin (they obviously had no problem showing me their silly side) as well as kind.  The kids LOVED to show me their dance moves which I found hysterical, and this field of grass that I insisted on wading through made playing really easy to do and fun! I truly loved every minute of our session and I heard it through the grapevine that the boys said it wasn’t too shabby, either;) I’m gonna give myself a gold star for that one*

Mom and Me

“ALL THAT I AM, OR HOPE TO BE, I OWE TO MY ANGEL MOTHER.” – ABRAHAM LINCOLN

I can’t get enough of these Mother’s Day Sessions!  I was so thrilled to photograph Iris and her darling kiddos, even if we did spend the majority of the time chasing that cute boy of hers! I adore the sweet glances-dandelion blowing-stealing kisses-fun, and most of all the love that is so evidently seen through my lens. 2015-04-03_00072015-04-03_00022015-04-03_00092015-04-03_00152015-04-03_00012015-04-03_00032015-04-03_00102015-04-03_00112015-04-03_00062015-04-03_00142015-04-03_00042015-04-03_00122015-04-03_00052015-04-03_0008
