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!
This face! When was the last time you saw a kid with smiles this big?
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. 🙂
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 are teeny tiny!
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.
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. 🙂
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. 🙂
I took Laura’s maternity photos a couple of months ago, and now I get to be the one to introduce you to Baby Roland!
I love getting to watch new parents fawn over their baby; everything is so new and cute!
Laura and her husband, Aaron, named Roland after a football coach Aaron had in high school. This particular coach became more of a mentor to Aaron and has been a big presence in his life. What a wonderful way to honor someone who has been so important. 🙂
And, not only does he have a great name, but he has a cute smile to boot!
I’m back to picture-taking and blogging after having my third baby. Hooray! And, what better way to come back than by taking pictures of this family and their beautiful newborn?
I’ve known Baby Nathan’s parents for years and their oldest son, Ben, is a little younger than my oldest son. Erika and I met through the program I did in graduate school, before she met her husband, Tony. I was privileged to be at their wedding and I’ve loved seeing their family grow over the years. It’s been a delight to see the beautiful mom Erika has become!
See? Seriously. So beautiful
Ben was such a fun older brother to photograph! He had the perfect amount of energy and gave me lots of great smiles.
As always, it was wonderful to capture these sweet moments of this family of four!
Welcome to the world, Baby Nathan! 😀
One of my most favorite things in life is getting to watch my friends become parents, whether that be for the first or sixth time. 🙂 Beth and I taught together for several years and I’ve so enjoyed getting to know her and her husband Andrew outside of school. This summer, they welcomed their first child into their family and little Daniel is incredibly precious.
People always ask new parents: “Do you think he/she looks like you? Or, do they look more like your spouse?” I have to say, Daniel looks like the perfect mix of both Beth and Andrew!
I’ve never known anyone to successfully get their baby’s hand prints at the hospital, but Beth and Andrew were able to do it! Then, we took this special photo of Baby Daniel next to his hand and foot prints in his baby book.
Do you see that mural on the wall behind them? Beth and her mom painted the whole thing! I am so impressed.
Congratulations to a wonderful couple and welcome to a truly special family, Daniel! 🙂
Tecie and Ed recently welcomed their newest little love into their family. Cecelia is absolutely gorgeous and you can tell she is loved by every single member of the family. 🙂
And such beautiful eyes! And that little smile!
Seriously, Theo and Josie were loving on their sister the whole time I was there!
I love LOVE taking pictures of parents with their babies — especially when it’s not the “first” baby. Love really does just grow in a family!
Tecie’s requested a few pictures of her with her older kids too, and I’m so glad she did! What a wonderful way to document this time for Theo and Josie.
Welcome to the world, Baby Cecelia! 🙂
When a client comes to you with one of the cutest ideas you’ve ever heard, you say yes! 🙂 Kelly and Kevin were married ten years ago at the University of Portland. But, not only were they married at UP, they also met there, had their first kiss there, and got engaged there! To celebrate their anniversary, Kelly wanted to take some pictures at UP in all of their important places.
So, we took a picture where they had their first kiss…
… and where they were engaged…
… and we recreated a few of their favorite wedding photos (Kelly even got another bouquet to look like her wedding bouquet and she wore her wedding shoes!).
There were a few photos with their adorable kiddos too, of course!
Then, finally, we ended with some pictures of a special blessing. The priest that married them (though, he was just a deacon at the time) stood in front of the doors of the beautiful chapel where Kelly and Kevin were married and blessed them both.
Many blessings to the two of you, Kelly and Kevin! 🙂
