We met up with the Kraus Family to photograph their two boys and dog. It was a gorgeous day just outside of Canby Oregon. We stopped by a pumpkin patch and found a beautiful wooded area where we did most of the shoot. Here are some of the best from the session.

We drove down to Corvallis a couple weeks back to photograph the Hong family. They have two boys - Benjamin and Brandon - and a brand new baby girl named Pyper. We did the shoot in their house and backyard. It was a gorgeous afternoon and these two boys kept us smiling the whole shoot. The first shot is the classic Elvis pose in case you were wondering.

It was such a pleasure meeting and working with Shonda and her family a couple weeks ago. Shonda is a very talented portrait and wedding photographer in Vancouver and Portland. (Shonda Barlow Photography) I know as a photographer that we rarely get photographed since we are always the ones taking the photos. So it was a huge compliment when she reached out to us to photograph her family! Her girls, Aydri and Brielle, were so sweet and a pleasure to work with. They became especially adorable when they saw the dolls that Shonda brought for them as a present for being good during the photo shoot. I wish that trick worked with all photo shoots! :P
We started the shoot in Happy Valley where we found several colorful trees for backdrops. We ended on Powell Butte - one of my favorite spots to walk around and soak in some beautiful Portland scenery. It was a fun shoot and I hope to work with this great family again!

Theo and Luci are some of the cutest kids on the planet! I always love working with little Theo. He is contemplative, smart, loves tractors (he calls them "John Deers") and loves to race. Do I even have to mention his fantastic curls? This is the third photo shoot I have done with Theo over the last couple years, but it was the first time I met Theo's cousin Luci. What a doll she is! We walked around a pumpkin patch, wandered through a hay maze and ended at the edge of a corn field. It was a fun way to spend an afternoon. I can't wait to work with them again.
