Tabb Family | Milwaukie, OR Family Photographer

As soon as I got to my session with the Tabb family in Milwaukie, the first thing I noticed is how cute Jessica’s kids are. Kyle and Natalie are totally photogenic and were SO well-behaved at our session.

Check out this cool kid, Kyle!

And, then, of course, there is the sweet smile of Natalie. πŸ™‚

And, to top it all off, not only are they adorable to photograph, but they get along so well! One of my favorite things to capture at sessions is sibling photographs. There’s two reasons for this: 1) they’ll never be this young again and 2) on those days when they keep picking on each other, Jessica can just look at these photos of them being super sweet and cute and remember that they do really love each other, lol!

And, of course, we had to get the pictures with mom and dad to round it out. Aren’t they sweet?

Thank you, Tabb family, for letting me capture all of you and for being such a delight to work with!

Call Extended Family | Oregon City Family Photographer

Almost a year ago, I got to do Benjamin’s newborn session for my friend, Wendy. In December, Wendy contacted me to find out if she could gift an extended family session to her in-laws for Christmas. Of course, I said yes! We decided to schedule the session for sometime in the Spring so we could have some beautiful green backgrounds and less rain. πŸ™‚

Extended family shoots are always a little crazy (because there are so many people!), but I love doing them. I get a chance to capture not just the individual families, but also the grandkids and the grandparents.

Call-extended-family-photographer-session-oregon-city-promenade_0095

And just the grandkids.

And just the grandparents.

All of the adults did a great job of keeping the kids entertained and moving while we were taking the photos and a special shout-out to Michelle who watched all of the little kids while I captured these great photos of the Original Calls. πŸ™‚

If you have an important anniversary coming up or you just want to get a fun gift for your parents, consider gifting them an extended family session!

Sophie turns TWO! | Milwaukie, OR Family Photographer

This little girl celebrated a huge milestone this last month when she turned TWO! There were a few days of rain behind us and several days of rain in front of us, so I’m glad we were able to get out on one of the nicest days we’ve had so far this year!

Sophie-two-year-family-session-milwaukie-clackamas-oregon_0078

Sophie has one of the sweetest smiles you’ll ever see and is very sure of herself, much like most two-year-olds. πŸ™‚ I loved all of the faces she made for me!

Sophie-two-year-family-session-milwaukie-clackamas-oregon_0077

Also, how fun is it to have a balloon that’s bigger than you are?!

Sophie-two-year-family-session-milwaukie-clackamas-oregon_0069

We ended the session by letting her play on the playground that had been calling to her since we got there. She was so fast climbing, sliding, and swinging!

It was wonderful to be able to celebrate this sweet girl! Happy second birthday, Sophie!

Kate, Geoff, and Barrett are some of the nicest, funniest people you’ll meet! Kate had Barrett about a month after I had my youngest son and have the same lion outfit! Clearly, Kate and I have both fantastic men in our lives and impeccable taste in kids’ clothes.

We met at Mt. Tabor on what was supposed to be a pretty sunny day. It was cloudy when we first got there and got in so many good shots!

Odin-family-session-mt-tabor-portland-oregon_0059Odin-family-session-mt-tabor-portland-oregon_0060Odin-family-session-mt-tabor-portland-oregon_0062

This face! When was the last time you saw a kid with smiles this big?

Odin-family-session-mt-tabor-portland-oregon_0066Odin-family-session-mt-tabor-portland-oregon_0061

Then, it began to rain and rain and rain. We hid under some trees and waited for the sun to come back out. I’m sure glad we did because the tees were just starting to blossom and were so pretty and the perfect backdrop for some pictures of Mr. Barrett.

We had a fun time at our session and they were true troopers for braving the rain with me. πŸ™‚

Camden 18-month session | Happy Valley Family Photographer

Camden’s no newbie to my blog and I’ve done sessions for his family quite a few times over the last couple of years. He’s such a sweet boy and I was so excited to be able to take his eighteen-month photos in his family’s beautiful home.

Camden-boy-eighteen-month-photo-session-happy-valley_0053

One of the things I really like about in-home sessions is that it allows us to document not only your family, but your home as well! Plus, all of the things that are important to you are usually right at hand! Check out this cute kid and his favorite book and his animal friends!

Camden-boy-eighteen-month-photo-session-happy-valley_0048Camden-boy-eighteen-month-photo-session-happy-valley_0056

See? Adorable. And not only do we have some of his favorite things, but his Mama (his favorite person!) is there to be with him too. So much love!

Camden-boy-eighteen-month-photo-session-happy-valley_0051

Camden’s other love is cars. The joy that comes out of this kid when he plays is just infectious!

Camden-boy-eighteen-month-photo-session-happy-valley_0054

It was a cloudy, rainy day outside, but inside we were able to get so many good pictures of Camden to capture his fun personality. πŸ™‚

Baby Noelle and Baby Grace | Happy Valley, OR Newborn Photographer

I’m so excited to finally show you pictures of the very first pair of twins I’ve ever photographed! I’m pleased to present to you Noelle (in the green blanket) and Grace (in the purple blanket)!

Aren’t they SO sweet?

If you remember, I’ve taken pictures of Kevin and Kelly’s family before, and most recently documented Kelly’s pregnancy of these two cuties during a family session.

I know it’s a cliche and everything, but you really do forget how small newborns are until you hold one and then they areΒ teeny tiny!

twin-newborn-lifestyle-photo-session-portland-happy-valley-oregon_0042

 

Lifestyle newborn sessions are wonderful for a lot of reasons, but one of the things I like about them the most is the way I can incorporate other members of the family into the shoot. It’s not just about Noelle and Grace being born, but it’s also about how their family is growing and seeing their siblings relate to them.

twin-newborn-lifestyle-photo-session-portland-happy-valley-oregon_0047

Seriously, how precious is all of this?!

I told my husband that we’re lucky we have a six-month old at home already, otherwise I’d be having all kinds of baby fever right now, lol.

Welcome to the world, Noelle and Grace! You are already so, so loved. πŸ™‚

Lutz Family | Wilsonville Family Photographer

Katherine contacted me because of the kind words of another one of my clients. She wanted to have family pictures taken and we settled on a beautiful park in Wilsonville, Memorial Park. I’ll admit that I haven’t spent much time in Wilsonville, but they have some amazing parks out there!

Enough about the details, let me tell you about this family! The Lutz’s have seriously adorable children and it was so sweet to see the way both Katherine and Ian doted on Kellan and Lana.

Both Kellan and Lana were a little shy of the camera at first, but I was able to get some good smiles out of them!

It was a pleasure to meet Katherine, Ian, and their kiddos and I can’t wait to see them again sometime soon. πŸ™‚
