Rowena Crest Family Session | Portland, OR | Mikaela, Michael + Kennedy

August 13, 2019

Sunday afternoon I drove an hour to meet this family of 3 (soon to be 4) near Rowena Crest Viewpoint. It was cloudy in Portland and I was in a mood. About 20 minutes from the trailhead, the sun broke through the clouds and the temperature climbed. I put on some tunes and slowly tried […]

It makes my heart happy to be doing more family work. It’s a refreshing change of pace from the work I do with my couples on their wedding day and I’ve noticed that broadening my workload keeps me on my toes creatively. Having some time alone with Sam before taking photos of her and Casey […]

Hildebrand Family | summertime family session in north bend

July 9, 2017

I’m hoping this session brings more families my way. I would be happy spending more evenings with a crew who sings Adele in open fields. Or uses donuts to bribe a little one into remaining lively. Family sessions have a different dynamic but it’s one I really enjoy. Here’s to hopefully many more.
