It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a client blog! Between the end of the school year and moving and all of the fun/busyness that comes with summer (not to mention my busiest July as a photographer!), I let blogging fall aside. BUT! I couldn’t let too much time go by before I talked about this awesome family!
Ashley contacted me in the spring about doing a family shoot in May because there are so many flowers in bloom that time of year. I always love photos of families, but photos of families with pretty flowers and nice green grass? Yes, please!
Ashley has two little girls, Emery and Ellie, and a son, Elijah. Emery and Ellie were too cute and had the best time giggling back and forth with each other.
Elijah was a little more shy, but we were able to get some great photos with his dad, Patrick and a few of Elijah running all over by himself! One of the things I love most about taking pictures of little kids is that each one is different, and some of that depends on their ages. When I have a toddler who just wants to move, I work with it! Letting kids be themselves makes for the best photos.
Some of my most favorite photos from the session are the pictures we got with the kids and their parents. I just love how each of their children will take away from this session not only family pictures, but also pictures of themselves with their parents.
We had this session up in Oregon City and I was SO excited that the rhododendrons were in full bloom and that so many of the other flowers had beautiful blooms as well. Spring in Oregon is one of my favorite times of year!
