Four Generations of Family at the Farm

Earlier this summer I had the honor of photographing the Larkins family in Beaverton, Oregon. So I was thrilled when they invited me to their family farm for a photo shoot of their extended family this August. Extended family photos are priceless. We mixed it up with formal posed photos and more candid lifestyle portraits. It is always especially meaningful to get all the generations of a family together for photos!

Press play on the slideshow below to see highlights from their session!

Playful Family Photoshoot with the Kidney Family - Beaverton Family Photographer

It was a joy to meet and photograph the Kidney family! Their session was playful and active, perfect for an adventurous family session! Silas, age 3, loved looking at photos of himself on the back of my camera in between shots! We played a little peak-a-boo, ran around a lot, and he even invited me to play with him on playground after his session!

Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page to watch a slideshow!

Thank you for our time together Kristen, Jeff, and Silas!

Happy National Sisters Day!

Happy National Sisters Day!

For national sister’s day, I’m sharing some special moments from one of my favorite sessions featuring sisters!

“A sister is someone who loves you from the heart. No matter how much you argue you cannot be drawn apart. She is a joy that cannot be taken away. Once she enters your life, she is there to stay.”

“When traveling life’s journey it’s good to have a sister’s hand to hold on to.”

“There is no better friend than a sister. And there is no better sister than you.”

“The greatest gift our parents ever gave us was each other.”

Do you have a favorite sisters quote? Share in the comments!

What a playful and adventurous family session! This was the second year my friend Erica drove her family up to Portland from Eugene to update their family portraits with me. I absolutely LOVE photographing them! We did playful shots, silly shots, traditional family portraits, and of course some romantic shots of the engaged couple-Erica and Jason!

Why I Love Taking Family Portraits In The Morning - Portland Family Photographer

You will hear many photographers talk about golden hour light because it is so warm and sunsets are beautiful! But when you know how to use it, the MORNING light is AMAZING! I'm always happy to climb out of bed extra early to greet the morning with a photo shoot!!

Golden Hour Family Session in Beaverton, Oregon

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.

The Funke Family Session in a Beautiful Birch Tree Forest Location

The Funke Family Session in a Beautiful Birch Tree Forest Location

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!

How to photograph your family in the snow | Oregon Family Snow Session

How to photograph your family in the snow | Oregon Family Snow Session

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.
