Happy 1st birthday Emilia | One Year Old Milestone Photography in Portland Oregon

Happy 1st birthday Emilia | One Year Old Milestone Photography in Portland Oregon

It was so fun to see this sweet family again and celebrate Emilia's 1st birthday! The first time I photographed baby Emilia she was bumping out in her beautiful mama's belly! It’s been fun to watch her grow! I absolutely loved capturing these moments at her one year milestone photoshoot! The 1-year balloon was a cute addition to the photo shoot too!

Golden Hour Family Session in Beaverton, Oregon

My lifestyle family photography rule: ALL snuggles must be documented! And warning...there are a lot of snuggles in this session! For family photography, I love guiding everyone into poses that show connection, and then letting things unfold from there to create authentic moments. Here are some favorites from my fall session with Belen, Hubert, and Camilo! We met at Cooper Mountain Nature Park in Beaverton, Oregon for a fall sunset session.

As a lifestyle family photographer, my goal is to create meaningful moments that show the love and connection in a family. But families don’t naturally do this at a photo shoot! It can feel quite awkward to be in front of camera! Each step of the way is guided through prompts and poses. Then sure enough, those candid “in between” moments start to happen and I am ready with my camera!

It has been so much fun watching Chelsea and Brandon’s little family grow! For their winter family session, I photographed them in the same location where we did their maternity session, at Dorris Ranch in Springfield, Oregon. This beautiful location was also the place they spent time as a couple after finding out they were expecting their baby girl, Chloe. Dorris Ranch has a quaint rustic barn and hiking trails through Oregon filbert orchards that lead to the Willamette River.

These are a few favorite photos from Tori, Patrick, and little Griffin’s family session up at Trillium Lake! This family is so adventurous that I knew it would be the perfect location! Oregon has so many beautiful locations to offer as family photography backdrops if you get out and explore a little!   Little Griffin did SO GREAT the whole session and even showed off some of his new walking skills!
