Keziah’s 6th Month Photos in Beaverton, Oregon

“What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade”. ~Gertrude Jekyll

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!

Sweet Azalia is just 3 days old in these pictures and she couldn’t be more perfect! I was highly anticipating her arrival after our Maternity Session and she did not disappoint.  I cannot describe the joy that I feel while having the privilege to document such newness.  I feel honored and blessed to take part in capturing the beginning of this sweet babe’s journey through life and I truly am grateful.

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*

Can you believe these pictures were taken in this Mama’s backyard?  It was so gorgeous and green and the epitome of the NW in the Spring. Alana was absolutely beautiful and so naturally at ease in front of the camera! I couldn’t get over how well behaved her two children were (m&m’s aside:) and it was so evident that she and her husband are amazing parents.  Although we just barely met, I am so happy for their baby to come into such a loving home. What a lucky girl!

I could not have asked for a more gorgeous evening to photograph this lovely Mama and her cute Family!  They are shortly inviting a little girl into their home and capturing this upcoming event could not gone any more beautifully. Selam and her cute belly were STUNNING.  I mean seriously, I felt like I just had to stand there with my camera and click and they would all turn out perfect. Their vibrant clothes and the colorful season truly brightened my day. I am so grateful to have had the chance to document their family of 3-soon-to-be-4 and I can’t wait until their sweet baby girl arrives! Photographs taken at the oh-so-perfect George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego, OR.
