When Jamie (the mama) called me a few weeks back to inquire about a family session I knew instantly it was going to be a great session. She had done her homework and was familiar with my style and down for what ever it took to make a great session. She also loved the idea of running around a local nature preserve I had been eying for months to shoot. It was perfect, so when the night came up and the temperature was not too hot, or too cold I knew it would be a good night. Oh and it helps that the entire family is completely beautiful.
I meet up with this adorable family at the Tualitin River National Wildlive Refuge just before sunset, and we had a lovely time running around, picking blackberries, chasing grasshoppers.
I could do the longest post in the world with all of my favorites, but I will be good. Here are a few of my favs so far:
Meet the little dude, he completely stole my heart. He the cutest! He just turned 2 and is always on the go! He gave me a work out for sure keeping up with him, but so worth it for that smile.
Mom & Dad are also very sweet and hello adorable!
We have lots of fun running around the reserve. They have some beautiful trails perfect for capturing that late summer warmth.
Little dude is ALL BOY. I scored big points when I caught a grasshopper for him to check out. Gah look at that smile, so cute!
This one might be my favorite, their smiles are all real & playful.
Little dude loves his mama!
and of course we got all those great little dude smiles with some delicious local blackberries! Yumm.
Ahh the whole family was just lovely.
Ok maybe I take it back, this one might be my favorite. I love the tender moments, and that little smile peeking out.
and one last shot before it was completely dark. I love all the colors here.
Jamie I had an absolutely wonderful time with all of you! I will have the full gallery for you very soon. I look forward to next time already, and weddings, and babies and on and one! You guys rock. And of course all my new clients get a little blog challenge special. If you can get 30 people to comment on this little blog post I will throw in a mini wallet album for both of you!
