Newborn portraits are unique from any other type of portrait sitting. ¬†The subject never listens to you, they cannot be bribed to smile, tickled to laugh and usually only cares about one thing; eating. ¬†Yet the results are some of the most sweetest most precious portraits out there. ¬†One week old Henry’s pictures were no different. ¬†Simply precious!

Welcome to the world Henry and Congratulations Erin and Bryan!

Bennett Family

April Hill Park in SW Portland was our host for the morning as I photographed the Bennett family.  This is such a cute neighborhood park.  We found lots of great places to use for our setting.  Talk about a sweet family! These two sisters are adorable together.  Sabrina just adores her big sis!

Thanks Bennett family for such a great shoot!

Faces of Finch

A few days ago I visited Finch, her mommy, daddy and her (soon to enter the world sister) to take some pictures. ¬†Finch was a girl after my own heart, she wanted to do some of her own creating too, so I shared my camera with her (she is a very responsible 2, almost 3 year old!). ¬†So I took some pictures of her, then we traded and she got to be the photographer. ¬†She took pictures of daddy’s feet, piglet’s ear, half of mommy’s head and she had a great time! ¬†I did as well. ¬†As I was going through the pictures from this shoot, I laughed out loud at the following series of pictures. ¬†This will give you a good idea of how much fun we had… I have cleverly titled this series of photo’s: Faces of Finch

(The rest of the shoot will be appearing soon, I just had to get these shots out there!)

Andrea and Wayne’s pride and joy

These boys are some of the sweetest, cutest, little guys I have come across. ¬† I’ve photographed both boys since they were babies and now they are full of life and bouncing around all over the place! Well, Wyatt a little more than his little brother Asher, but I’m sure he’ll be giving him a run for his money soon enough. ¬†What a fun family, they were singing, dancing, playing musical instruments, jumping of the hay bale and I even had a kiss blown to me ūüôā

Jonah

Sweet little Jonah and his family posed for some pictures before his baptism at Holy Trinity in Beaverton. ¬†It was hot outside but we managed to find some shade. ¬†Here are some of my fave’s from the day. ¬†I was really happy with the black and white’s, I’ve always been a little partial to the black and whites but these really stood out.

Hunter

Ok, if there were a baby smile contest Hunter would be competing for the top spot!  This kid has cheeks to spare, and a smile that makes everyone else smile.  This shoot was successful thanks in part to a singing dog and a harmonica.  It’s different for every kid and this one was easy to please, that always makes my job easy!

We lucked out with the weather and were able to let Hunter have some fun in the fall leaves at the park.

Great kid. Great shoot. Great day!

Fall Family Shoots!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Ahhhh, Fall is here! What a fun time at The Crystal Springs Rhododendron Gardens! ¬†We had an eventful shoot, many onlookers followed us around. ¬†They all had wings and bills and were hoping we were there to feed them not take pictures. ¬†None the less it kept the kids entertained and probably us grown ups as well ūüôā The foliage was just starting to turn autumn colors and thankfully the fog had lifted by the time we started shooting.

All in all a great shoot with a great family!
