The beautiful Thurston Family

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 & 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.

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!

Before our big move across country to Portland, Oregon… we decided to social network and connect with local photographers from the area. We met Kat of One Love Photography thru a Facebook group geared toward Portland Professional Photographers. After many messages online, and text messages about how excited we were to connect, we finally made our first trip to Oregon to look for places to live in October. During our first trip, we met with Kat & her boyfriend Mike over drinks and great conversation at an amazing bar in Portland called Bartini.

We had so much fun hanging out with them, we decided to looking for places around the area they lived, and we luckily found the perfect place to live 🙂 We live 5 minutes away from each other & it’s pretty awesome! Kat & Mike have been there for us since day one, and we are very thankful to call them some of our best friends 🙂 So, enjoy these photos of their cute family, and check out their great photography; One Love Photography
