This Cathedral Park family session was cut short due to the weather. The northwest can be quite finicky and it was pouring rain when we arrived with no sign of clear skies. And although we didn’t make it very long, I think it was a blessing in disguise. Photographing Gretchen, Aaron, River and Cedar in their home, as they decorated their tree and snuggled with their pups was just as special. By escaping the dreary down pour, I felt lucky to snag the chance to see their quaint home in St. John’s, which has easily become my favorite neighborhood in Portland!
