Just a few days before Stefan & Rachel's wedding, we traveled out to Hoyt Arboretum to take some pre-wedding portraits of the two of them. As always, Portland's naturally lush foliage made a gorgeous backdrop for their portrait session. Stefan and Rachel are truly a perfect match, and I think it shows in their photos. Just being around them, you can tell how deep their love is, and how much fun they have together.

This little family stole my heart the minute I met them. The Lamadrids were so excited when they found out they were expecting child #3. They hadn't done maternity or newborn sessions for either of their other children and, since their new baby will most likely be their last, they wanted to celebrate the occasion with maternity portraits of the whole family. We photographed their session in Hoyt Arboretum, one of my very favorite locations in Portland. We grabbed some family shots of them all together, until the kiddos became restless and just wanted to play, allowing us to capture some beautiful portraits of just mom and dad together. We finished the session with a wardrobe change and a family picnic, complete with bottled sodas, blueberries, and strawberries. This family couldn't be any sweeter and I am so grateful that I was able to capture these once-in-a-lifetime portraits for them.
