I tell you, that Ryan Lu has my heart. How could she not with eyes like those?! This photoshoot with the Vassar family timed perfectly with the beautiful blooms on the Magnolia Trail in Portland and we took full advantage. And note to parents: Apparently a trick to get your little ones to smile... your iPhone flashlight! Who knew?!
Latta Family | Swan Island Dahlia Farm
Dahlias and smiles all around for the Latta Family photoshoot this year. Little Isabelle is a little bigger and much more mobile than last year and big brother Oliver is still as sweet as ever. Swan Island Dahlia farm provided a stunning backdrop for this sweet summer morning shoot.
Perez Family | Cathedral Park
The rainiest day photo shoot there ever was! The Perez family were all total superstars, even with sheets of rain coming down on us at Portland's Cathedral Park in St. Johns. This family is chocked full of love and laughter so contagious that not even a rain storm could keep it at bay.

Baby Eleanor | Private Residence
Oh sweet baby Eleanor, what a lucky little nugget you are. I had the pleasure of photographing Kellie and Bryan's new addition to their family at their home right outside of Portland. After only two weeks of parenting, they both seem as natural and comfortable as can be and it shows in Eleanor's easy demeanor. Congrats you two!
Latta Family | Private Residence
Oh those Lattas - what sweethearts. Angie is a PR client of mine at R/West, otherwise known as my day job. I've known Angie since Oliver was just a wee baby, 5.5 years ago. To Angie (and Tom's) surprise, along came the baby girl they always wanted in Ms. Isabel. Even though I'm a total sucker for babies (who isn't?) I was the MOST impressed with the sweet bond that has formed between Olli and Izzi. Man, those two just melt my heart.
