Columbia River Gorge Engagement Session

Susan and Josh picked the Columbia River Gorge for their engagement session; one of my absolute favorite spots for photography anytime of the year. But this session was extra special since we got the added bonus of gorgeous fall colors everywhere we looked. Susan and Josh brought along their favorite pup, Penny (she even made it in a photo or two!) and we ventured along the Historic Columbia River Highway to find some unique spots off the beaten path. Of course, we couldn't help ending at Crown Point for some lookout shots with the gorge in the background.

Growing up in Florida, where Fall colors were practically a mythical legend, I had never really experienced a true Autumn until I moved to Portland. I look forward to fall colors every year now, but it still always catches my breath when it arrives in all it's vibrant beauty. I'm so glad we were able to capture some of it for Susan & Josh's engagement session.

Macleay Park & Pittock Mansion Maternity Session - Becky & Benton

These two both work in weather. So naturally, when it came time to photograph their Portland maternity session at Pittock Mansion and Macleay Park, it was all too appropriate that it started raining just in time for their session. Becky & Benton met at school in Florida, so they brought along some fun props to include which represented both their Colleges, and of course, some super cute baby books relating to weather. Rain or shine, this sweet couple looks madly in love no matter where they are. I'm so happy for them and their very first baby.

Baby Aidan - Peter Rabbit Themed Newborn Session

It all started with some Peter Rabbit baby bed sheets. This little boy's momma fell in love with them, and before she even knew she was having a little boy, she had set out on a quest to acquire all sorts of sweet little Peter Rabbit-themed nursery decor. So, we decided to continue the theme and plan little Aidan's newborn session around Peter Rabbit too. His momma brought some wooden letters and and baby toys from home to include in the photos, complete with little boy overalls, and a soft, plushy bunny rabbit. The result, as you can see, was just too cute for words, so I'll let the photo do the talking...
