This blog post comes to you from up in the air where I am en route to Chicago for some serious photo fun! I thought it would be a good time to share the final family session from my last photo adventure to Portland, OR in August.

Being a photographer in LA is great… fantastic weather throughout the year, so many beautiful options for locations and great people!  But, there’s is something about working in another part of the country, so beautiful and so different in it’s own way, that is so inspiring as a photographer. My mother-daughter shoot with Shay and her sweet little girl, Rafaela, on the magical Sauvie Island was just that.  I have been wanting to do a photo session here for years and when it finally happened, it left me feel so satisfied and happy.  It was a good feeling!

Man, oh man!  Thinking about my photo session with with the Devereux family in Portland last month just makes me smile!  I knew I was in for a fun shoot when, having never met her before, little Reese ran up to me and gave me a great big hug.  She was my instant BFF.  The whole family was just as sweet and made it pretty easy to get lots of great photos of them together.

Portland is such a beautiful town and our location for this shoot, Cathedral Park, was just gorgeous.  We did the photos pretty early in the morning but because of the fires that were happening north of us in Washington, there was this orange glow that made it seem like we were taking the photos at Golden Hour.  I went with it and I’m loving the results.
