I really mean it when I say it is a pleasure to watch my littlest clients grow. You may remember sweet little Arlo from his newborn session not too long ago. Well Arlo Bear is back, and even more adorable. Six months is always a fun age to capture. So much character, so much movement, so many smiles. Little dude had no shortage of any for me!

Here are a few of my favorites from our time together…

Meaghan & Ben thanks again for welcoming me into your home. Your boy is an absolute darling, and great for me as usual. I can not wait to see him walking & talking here soon enough! I hope you enjoyed your sneak peek, I will have the whole set up for you shortly.

When Ellie first contacted me about setting up a session for her, her husband and pups I was excited but not sure how we were going to pull off a winter session outdoors in Oregon with out ending up with muddy dogs & people. We did our best to schedule, and each time either snow or crazy ice storms it. The end result is that we waited until spring and lucked into a stunning warm day. We headed out the the beautiful Champoeg State park, (the site of their wedding 8 years ago) and had a great time playing with cute dogs and taking some fun images.

Here are a few of my favorites so far…

Ellie & Derrick thanks again for making the trek out. I am SO glad we waited until spring. I had a great time chatting with you guys, and meeting your darling doggies. I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek! I will have the whole set for you shortly. 🙂
