Autumn colors came a little later than usual and they left in a hurry this year, but we were able to find some for this sweet little family photo session! We met up at a dog park in Lake Oswego, Oregon for this family of four (soon to be five!) family session. We found some beautiful golden leaves still clinging to trees and of course the classic evergreen trees.
I loved this session from the little baby bump to the pups with their plaid bandanas, and I hope you enjoy all of the photos!
Bring on all of the family photo sessions just in time to include the photographs on your Christmas cards! When I learned that the father had been working hard at splitting and stacking wood, I just knew that we had to have family photos in front of it (super cute and rustic!). And of course, we had to include the puppers of the family. I bet their neighbors probably think that they had gone crazy with all the sounds I was making to get the dogs attention for the photos. hahaha.
Plus, the front of their house is super cute, so a couple family photos had to be taken in front of it. There's more places than you think that you could have family photos taken at on your property, sometimes you just need another set of eyes to find some places.
Did you know that I love dogs?!?! And I love to photograph dogs! This is Molly, she's a super cute and friendly Yorkie. She's so friendly that it was challenging to get full body shots of her because all she wanted was loving.
Somedays you just need a happy dog to lift your spirits.
Miss Daisy is a Great Pyrenees, who is just over a year old. She's a sweetheart, with the most beautiful golden eyes. Classic Great Pyrenees are big, white, and fluffy, but Daisy has splashes of black, which I think make her look even cuter.
I'm excited to introduce you to a handsome young lab named Brew.
Brew's mom, Megan, was more than ready for this mini photo session with her fur baby. She told me that ever since they got him as a puppy around Valentine's Day last year, that she wanted to have a photo shoot just for him.
One of my loves is animals, especially horses and dogs (if you can't tell 😉). My dogs, Kona and Coal, are like my family and I bet yours feel like part of your family. Many families have photo sessions to capture a moment in time, especially to document the growth of the family.
I wanted to give you a couple helpful tips on how to make the most of any photo session you would have with your fur baby.
Like many animals, dogs can pick up if you're excited, anxious, nervous, or stressed, so put your mind at ease so that your pup will be at ease, too.
I hope you stay awhile. This is where I will talk about my paintings, processes, photography & adventures, post processing, social media, and more.
