It was early September when I met with Taylor and Cole about photographing their wedding which was in a couple weeks. There was no time for an engagement session, but when I told them that I also have the option of doing Just Married Sessions. And that’s just what we did over the weekend. Even with the threat of freezing rain, we headed out to Oxbow Park and even though it was cold, it wasn’t icy.
When you have a large family, it can be hard to be all together for family photos. But once you’re all together, all the cousins need a place to run around and get their energy out without getting super dirty. And that’s where the coast is perfect the perfect place for family photos!
It's not everyday that I have the honor to photographer someone so tiny. Meet little Charlotte. Her mommy and daddy love her so much and so does her doggie, Lucy.
Charlotte was only 11 days old when I came to her home on a chilly November day to document the early days of her life. It's so hard to believe that we were all this little at one point or sometimes even smaller!
Just imagine that you've been married for awhile, your dress is hanging in your closet (or maybe even in your parent's attic) and you loved or maybe wasn't completely satisfied with your wedding photos. Well, let me tell you about all the fun we could have with a Just Married Shoot, aka Bridal Session! One of my FAVORITE things to be apart of lately is this!
I couldn't have said it better than Michaela of Kayla Hurd Photography, so these are her exact words from a recent Instagram post of hers.
How do you select your photographer?
Price? Style? Personality? Convenience?
It doesn’t matter if it’s a wedding, family photos, boudoir or even headshots — every single one of those factors listed above should be considered and accepted before moving forward.
Last weekend I had a day full of mini sessions and the weather was perfect! There's always a chance this late in the year in Oregon that it might be raining, but it was overcast most of the day. Everyone came to a little greenspace/park down the street from my home in Salem and I had a bunch of props that they could choose from which were an assortment of my own blankets and wooden crate to a bench, seat, and pillows from For the Love of Pete.
This first photo is one of my little girl, Bridget. How can I not share this photo?!?!? She was also my test subject to make sure the lighting was right, plus she's now just getting the hang of sitting up by herself!
Without further ado, here are a few highlights from each session. I had a lot of families, some of just the kids, and one couple, plus Walter the Basset Hound. I hope you have as much fun looking at all the photos as I did taking them!
I hope you stay awhile. This is where I will talk about my paintings, processes, photography & adventures, post processing, social media, and more.
