The M Family

Beautiful fall family session at Cathedral Park, Portland, Oregon . We love this location, and the beautiful architecture of the St. John’s Bridge.

The M family loved playing in the crunchy leaves, throwing them in the air, and jumping in the piles. The kids climbed trees, and made wands out of sticks. They turned their mom into their two favorite animals, a rabbit, and a frog.

So much love & silliness shared within this family! We are so happy to take their family photos every year!

Mark & Elizabeth Engaged!

Congrats on your engagement, we are so excited to photograph your wedding in July!

You can tell this couple is genuinely in love, you can see it in the way they look at one another, and the laughter they share.During this session we enjoyed a beautiful hike around Forest Park, and took photos at the infamous Witch’s Castle in Portland. We also took photos at the beautiful Pittock Mansion.

This set of photos was taken in Hillsboro, at the Jenkins Estate.

The Epling Family { Film Session }

A few weeks ago we met up with this adorable family at Cathedral Park, where the beautiful St. John’s bridge is located. We discovered a abandoned boat, balanced on a floating board walk, climbed trees, and the walls of the bridge. Lot’s of fun!!

All the photos below are taken with 35mm Portra 160 film, with a Canon A-1. When received our first e-mail from the family, they stated that they were looking for a film session, and we got really excited!!! We love the look & feel of film, and all the little imperfections, which make it feel raw & beautiful.

Enjoy the photos below! If you fall in love with film and would like to book a session, send us a e-mail!

The beautiful Thurston Family




After following Karyn on instagramย @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 ๐Ÿ™‚



We walked thru Portland’s beautiful city park, called Mt. Tabor Park.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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!
