The Dangaran Family

It was a chilly November morning, but that didn't stop the Dangaran Family from taking family photos. Sarah thought it would be a great idea to round up her in-laws to take some family photos since a new son/grandson/nephew entered the family in June. The rain held off at the perfect timing and hanging out with the Dangarans was the best time. They made my job incredibly easy.  They're a joy to be around and such a beautiful family.

The Waldo Family

Last September, Ben and Jessica were expecting their first child and I was able to photograph their maternity photos and their newborn photos. Fast forward a year and Bode is now a year old and the cutest little guy you could meet. They of course wanted to get some one-year photos in along with family photos while fall was in full swing. And we lucked out with the rain! We photographed at McMenamins Edgefield which ended up being the perfect spot for this family. They brought along a Radio-Flyer wagon that was actually Ben's when he was a kid. It was the perfect prop for little Bode.

A Family Photoshoot Surprise

About a couple months before their photoshoot, the Jim Family contacted me for family photos. The Jim Family are basically family to me since I've known them my whole life, so of course I said yes in a heartbeat. As the day got closer, I was in contact with the mom on details. A little curious, I was wondering if something else was going on that day. I bluntly asked if the daughter was getting engaged that same day and sure enough, I was correct! After knowing this information, I worked with both her boyfriend and her mom to create the best scenario so he could pop the question. The day came and we started off with an hour of family portraits all throughout the Pearl District in Portland, Oregon. Thankfully the rain held off and it ended up being the perfect opportunity for her boyfriend to get on one knee and pop the question. She we thoroughly surprised! It was such an honor to be apart of the day and see the events unfold. Congrats to Kevin and Candace!

The Loud Family

With a chance of rain in the forecast, it didn't stop the Loud Family from utilizing the weekend for a family photoshoot.  We lucked out and got a dry day along with fog. It made for the perfect fall setting for this shoot.
