After following Karyn on instagram @girlofcardigan for awhile, and reading her wonderful blog about motherhood, Girl Of Cardigan. We felt a connection with this beautiful family, and knew we would love to be friends with them! When we were visiting Portland, Oregon this past October to check out places to live, we made plans to meet with Karyn, and little Fable. We met for breakfast at a wonderful bakery, in the Alberta district. We had lovely conversation, and they showed us all the cute little shops around the area, we had a great time!
After our big move we decided that we wanted to start focusing on photographing families. Don’t worry we will still photograph a few weddings a year! We love capturing the simple love between parents and their children…
Once we settled in to our new city, we reconnected with the Thurston family, and we went on a fun photo adventure 🙂
We walked thru Portland’s beautiful city park, called Mt. Tabor Park.
Karyn wearing her beautiful wrap by Lillie Baby, and the funny Fable making silly faces at the camera.
Karyn & Noel being silly & adorable as always…
After the park, we walked back to their house to enjoy a wonderful dinner. Noel & Karyn are quite the cooks! Noel is also wonderful Baker, as a gift he baked us some wonderful bread 🙂
After a delicious dinner we went out and took candid photos of Fable running around the yard playing, and singing.
Hanging out with backyard chickens!! So cute 🙂 We love the simple love between this adorable family!
During these sweet photos with Fable and her baby doll… Noel was dancing and singing “Winnie the Pooh” behind us, while we were taking photos. After the session we had that song stuck in our head for days!
Thank you to Karyn, Noel & little Fable for the awesome dinner & for letting us capture these sweet moments of your loving family. We hope for many more adventures in the future!
