I just got back from the beautiful city of Portland, OR where I combined a little vacation with some really lovely and inspiring family photography.  I can’t wait to share more photos from my trip!  If you’re interested in having me travel to your town for family photos, let me know.  I have a feeling I may want to do more of this kind of thing!

Oh man!  I LOVE everything about this family photo session!  Give me an awesome family who love to have fun, a great outdoor location late in the day and an hour or so to explore and I am one happy camper.

When I was headed to meet the Beyer Family last week in Pasadena, I was honestly a little worried.  It was super sunny and about 95 degrees out.  Not the best conditions for happy family photos.  So, we took our time and found some pretty yet shady spots for our photos.  We kept things really relaxed and fun, focusing on photographing candid moments.  And, as the sun crept into the golden hour aka my “happy hour,” my worry washed away and we got tons lovely, lovely photos that I think really capture this sweet family .  It might just be my favorite family photos of the summer!

As a side note, I’d love to know what you think of these!  Please feel free to leave a comment below.  Enjoy!

    All such wonderful pictures! Looks like everyone had a blast!

With all of the newborn photo sessions I have been doing lately, I realized that much of the photos you see here on the website are probably not a fair representation of what goes on behind the scenes.  It’s not uncommon to spend more time feeding the baby and changing diapers than actually taking photos.  Mom and dad are often surprised at how unusually awake and/or hungry their little one is during the shoot.  Babies will be awake when you want them to be asleep and asleep when you want them to be awake.  I’m convinced there’s some strange physical law of newborn photography when in actual fact it’s just how babies are… a little unpredictable.  But, in the end, it’s all worth it when you get that sleepy little grin or that look of baby love on my mom and dad’s faces.  It just takes a little time and patience but there’s just nothing better!
