I had the pleasure of photographing this family in Bend, Oregon and it was absolutely stunning! We enjoyed perfect weather and gorgeous mountain views. Can’t ask for more than that!
Being on the camera side of most photography sessions, it isn’t often that I can appreciate the struggle that my clients go through in preparing for their own sessions. We finally got around to our own family photos this spring and here is what it took…
17 trips to different stores to find coordinating outfits.
1 last minute trip the day of the session because I decided I didn’t like MY outfit.
5 whining kids who had to be bribed with ice cream.
2 locations changes because… I don’t recall why. At the time it seemed important.
1 pair of forgotten spanx. I mean… how did I forget to put those on?!?!
7 sweaty heads of hair that needed brushing or touch ups.
3 rescheduled dates for sick kids.
1 very hot doggie who was way more interested in walking the trails.
4 advil to stave off the headache of coordinating this event.
1 very patient, loving and dedicated partner who knew how important this was to me.
1 amazing photographer and friend, Megan, who made it all possible.
Finally $73 spent on fast food and ice cream to satisfy the angry lawn gnomes… I mean my beautiful and cooperative children.
Love getting to document a new baby soon to arrive! This sweet family has been a joy to photograph over the last year!
Welcome William! William was in a rush to enter the world, but I made it just in time. I was so happy to get him into the studio where things were a LITTLE calmer. He was a dream and slept through all the chaos. As always, his big sis and brother were just amazing to work with and we loved having them in. It is so fun to watch a family grow!
I happen to be present when these two (no longer little) humans were brought into the world as their birth photographer. You can imagine my delight at getting to see how incredible they are now! It was a joy to have their smiles grace my camera once again and to see the love they have for each other!
