Location Scouting – {Columbia Children’s Arboretum, Portland, OR}


So. This gorgeous place is a mere 7 minutes from my home, and yet, its in such a hidden, unexpected place (read: Its most recognizable neighbors are a truck stop, a junk yard and a school bus lot) its taken me 7 years to discover it. The children and I have been out to it a lot to play and explore, but this is the first time I’ve taken my camera along. The space is 28 acres, and has native trees from all 50 states planted on the grounds, as well as a slough, footbridge and wildlife including ducks, frogs and (unfortunately for me!) snakes.

My daughter, Karter, is my favorite face in the whole world to photograph (well, besides my other favorite face, her brother), but in general does not enjoy me taking her picture. On this day, she was excited to put on her dress and do a bit of photo taking. And I was a happy Mama!

Abby & Aidan {George Rogers Park, Lake Oswego}


I loved my time we these two sweet, gorgeous children, and their sweet Mama at George Rogers Park. About half way through our session, as we were waiting for the sunshine to go behind the clouds for better light, these two began to interact in a way that bested any poses I could possibly dream up. Their natural interactions were beautiful and so much fun to capture.

Avery – Girl on the Farm {Sauvie Island, Portland, OR)


Finally, after several months of waiting out winter, I was able to meet up with my Facebook “100 likes” mini-session winner, Miss Avery! This is the third time I’ve been privileged to photograph Avery, and I couldn’t dream of a more perfect setting to capture her in! It was a gorgeous day on Sauvie Island, and Avery has perfect hair for beautiful, wind blown photos. She’s such a doll. Though very stoic on our shoot day, I managed to capture a few smiles she gave her older brother, Brody. She lights up for him!

Thanks Avery, as always, I LOVE getting to photograph you!
