This little family added a new member this December. Bruin Scott Willms made his entrance into the world on December 14th and asked to take newborn photos of the little guy. He was so calm the entire time, made my job easy. Loved seeing Ashley and Kirk transition into parenthood. They're already naturals and you can tell Bruin is so loved already. I can't wait to watch this little guy grow up!
Kelsey O'Halloran of NW Creatives asked if I could be the photographer for their family photos this year as a special gift to her family for Christmas. I couldn't be more honored to be their photographer. Kelsey and her husband Caleb have been good friends of Drew and I and have been also a huge support of my photography business. We met at Foothills City Park in Lake Oswego on a Saturday morning. The weather was absolutely freezing which made this shoot a quick one. We had a great time and they made the most out of this chilly weather.
This family shoot was one of my favorites this year. Taking place on their friend's estate, this was the perfect setting for these two. Matt and Thea wanted the perfect photo for their Christmas card. They picked the perfect setting to make that happen. With their dog Henna in tow, the clouds rolled in for the perfect lighting. This was my second shoot with these two and I must say, each year gets better!
A dear friend Kelly Zweber has been in need of new head shots for her Real Estate company - Berkshire Hathaway Real Estate. After years of talking about it, we finally made it happen! She did my head shots and I did hers. We couldn't have picked a more beautiful Portland day. (Although you can't tell by the photos, but it was freezing out). I think we got some great shots out of the bunch and we ended the shoot with a handful of family shots of her and her husband Zach and their golden doodle Stella. The photo with Stella at the wreath ended up being my most popular photo on instagram. This family knows how to make the most of photoshoot!
This photoshoot was thrown together last minute and it couldn't have been any more perfect. Ali really wanted a "woodsy" backdrop but the rain was coming any minute. Randomly Ali thought their backyard might work. Sure enough, it was exactly what she wanted! Their daughter Joey just turned 2 and she wanted to make sure she had some photographs of her during this time before baby number 2 arrives. This family was so adorable and after Joey couldn't stop talking about her lollipop, her parents finally caved in. Thanks again Rick and Ali for letting me photography your sweet family!
After going back and forth on dates for family photos, we picked a day and decided rain or shine, we were going to go through with it. There was a break in the ran an hour before the time of their shoot and right as I jumped into my car to head over to meet the Gilchrist Family, the rain started up again. Despite a rough time for one of the kiddos to get ready, it didn't stop the picture perfect fall family photos.
