Babe in the Forest

This is a very impromptu photo session with a friend after I found this super-cute hat in a local boutique; she happened to have a matching vest and I think the session turned out fantastic. Thanks little "J" for being flexible with us!

Little T

Just some random "around the house" photo sessions with Thatcher, he's almost 3... I can't believe it!

Stunning Mama

I found this amazing gold frame at a local antique dealer and had to snatch it up... Okay, I can't take all of the credit, it was actually my husband who pointed it out. We definitely got our use out of this frame (check out a future blog posting for family photos with this same frame... just haven't gotten to uploading those yet). Thanks so much wonderful "W" family, I had tons of fun with you- it's great to have such an open and out-going couple to work with because we all know that frame isn't light! I also think your effort (and possible slight embarrassment) was worth it for the brick shots, turns out "Steakadelphia" on 60th and Powell is not a bad venue for urban brick photos... and I seriously doubt either of you thought you'd be standing outside on a cold rainy Portland day for pregnancy photos- thanks again!

This little lady looked just like a little pixie- she was so perfect! Here are some photos from our session this past weekend; what a doll she is!

Behind the Scenes with Assistant Taylor

Taylor and I played around with some different backdrops and lighting ideas the other day after a session. She gets 'paid' by dealing with me and my random ideas... as well as Thatcher who LOVES Taylor and keep asking her to babysit again!

Thatcher taking over the scene and Taylor snuggling him!

Well, I don't like revealing my secrets but, yes, that is Thatcher holding the hair dryer to get that 'windblown' look on Taylor's hair- you never know when you're going to need an assistant and your toddler never knows that he's gonna help!

Laid Back Baby M

Generally 2 month old babies are more difficult to photograph because they've emerged from their newborn slumber and are beginning to realize that they're "not in Kansas anymore"... but not little "M". She was just taking the whole world in with open eyes and remarkable contemplation! When she got tired, she just closed her eyes and went to sleep- what a gem! Thanks for a great afternoon guys!
