Few things make me smile more than seeing a family that truly brings joy to each other. These three certainly know how to make each other laugh. They shared such a serene sense of peace and shear happiness. It makes me feel good to witness such wonderful and loving relationships. It makes me feel better to be able to capture it for them to forever cherish.
I met this adorable family out at Edgefield. You know I love variety, and getting to shoot in a location where I normally don’t shoot makes me a very happy girl. We only explored a small part of the grounds. Good thing too, because I’ll be taking this adorable little man’s 1-year-old photos in August. I don’t know how I end up with such great clients, but after every session I could totally just hang out with them. Especially a family like this one. When you’re around people who ooze and radiate love for each other, you just want to absorb as much of that positive energy as you can.
I mean… just look at this guy. Does he not radiate joy and happiness? The smiles on mom and dad’s faces never went away the entire session.

Happiness. Joy. Love. You feel it?
I love this shot. They didn’t know I was shooting. They thought I was getting everything set up. They’re looking at their son who is sitting in the stroller to my right. I have no idea what their little man was doing to make them smile so big, but I can only imagine it was super cute.
Daffodils and cherry blossoms. I love Oregon in the Spring.
Dad is standing to my right. I have no idea what he is doing, but it had to have been hilarious. I offered to pay him to come to every session with me to get the kids to smile.
Oh my God. Now I’m funny too.
The story behind these two photos will make you laugh… For the one on the left, I told them to stand together like they were at prom. If you know my style, you know I don’t ask people to do those sorts of things because I seriously want a posed shot. I ask them to do that so I can get the shot on the right. Funny thing is, I actually like both shots equally.
So happy! Look at those two little chompers.
I have to brag here a bit. I’m particularly proud of this photo. It wasn’t raining that day, thank goodness, but we had high overcast skies. The only thing in the sky was a dull ugly grey color. No detail whatsoever. Just ugly grey. When you live in Oregon and you’re a photographer, I suppose you have to figure out how to photoshop the occasional blue sky. Makes the photo a bit more interesting than ugly grey, right? How did I do?
As always, I appreciate you taking the time to look at my blog. I appreciate each and every comment that you all leave me!
