Evelyn {Mt. Tabor, Portland, OR}

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a cuter set of pigtails than the ones on little Ms. Evelyn! We spent the morning at Mt. Tabor Park playing on the swings, slides and blowing dandelions in the wind. Adorable Evelyn’s pigtails were flying the whole time. It was a bit chilly on the mountain, but she was a trooper. Oh, and the precious tutu she’s wearing in many of the photos? Her talented mommy made it. You can check out more of her children’s handmade items hereblog2blog 3blog 4blog 5blog6

Mara & Penelope {Cook Park, Tigard, OR}

Mara came bounding out of the car, happy,  chatty and adorable on the morning we met up for photos, and was a very willing subject. She even persevered through a couple of skinned knees gained by running on the dock for a shot. Mara also introduced me to her new baby sister, Peny, who showed the same cooperation and stamina (at least by 3 month old standards!), not fussing until the very end of our shoot. Peny has the prettiest baby blue eyes!

Thanks, girls, for being so cooperative, and even letting me shoot a few photos with your parents in them!


Nathan & Libby – {Wilsonville, OR}

The morning was sun-filled, the dew was heavy on the grass, and my darling family of subjects were easy-going and fun. I loved getting to document them! Nathan was a total charmer, with a million dollar smile and a pocket full of ninjas. His curly-locked sister was sweet and timid, harder to capture, but when she smiled, oh so worth the work to get there!
