I'm not sure what I loved more about this family session: the quality time with some great folks and one outrageously sweet little girl, or the magical cherry blossoms in full bloom down by the waterfront. All of it was a huge win. I really could get used to more Saturdays like these.
I am so honored to introduce the Taylor Family. Their family is being highlighted in Cedar Mill Living, a community publication for the residents of our local neighborhood (more on the magazine, soon!!). Steady rain threatened our photoshoot, but a quick peek at the doppler radar showed we had a break in the storm later that afternoon, so these guys were willing and flexible to shift plans! Above all else, they were so warm, fun to hang out with, and kind as can be.
Thanks for everything, Taylor clan, and I can't wait to see your published feature in CML!
Vu from Fit with Ninja Vu is about to head to LA to compete at NBC American Ninja Warrior next week. In preparation for his big debut, a local magazine wanted to share his story and asked us to capture a handful of parkour shots. An hour at the parkour gym playing around and I had a freaking ball.
Good luck next week, Vu! We're all cheering for you!
I remember years ago, dreaming with Kenzie about the day this would finally come. Pregnancy is a miracle in and of itself and it gives me warm fuzzies having been able to capture these moments for these two (well, three!).
Snow and laughter and wonderful, heavenly baby bumps. Boy do I love maternity sessions. Especially this one.
When Tom and I were planning logistics for his and Drew's Engagement Session, it went a little like this:
Me "Hey, I know you guys are outdoorsy and love to hike. Want to meet in 12" of snow when it's 20*F out and the whole city has been shut down for 72 hours?"
Tom, "Yes. We've got a Subaru and a bunch of friends waiting for us in Tillamook afterwards. Let's do it."
These are my kind of people. And I am so looking forward to their April wedding in NE Portland.
