I had a great time hanging out with Kirk, Julia, and their little boy Harry up on Mt Tabor last Fall. The weather was gorgeous, the trees were showing off with yellow & orange leaves, and there were TONS of smiles and laughter. These three are definitely in the running for happiest family ever. Their smiles and laughter are contagious and my cheeks were sore by the end of the session from non-stop smiling.

We chose Mt Tabor for their session as it is their neighborhood park and where they spend a lot of time. It it a great place to go running, if you are into that sort of thing, which they are... and I am not ;) It's a also a wonderful place to go for a nature walk as there are lots of trails that don't allow motorized vehicles. There are multiple vantage points facing west where you can sit and admire just how beautiful Portland really is- you can see all the buildings downtown nestled in among the hills and trees. I love, love, love Portland and count myself very lucky that I grew up in the area.  Kirk & Julia moved out here from Wisconsin, but their son, Harry, was born here in Portland, making him a true Oregonian. Mt Tabor was a perfect location for them to show their friends and family back home what their life is like out here in the Pacific Northwest.

When you book your session with me, I will help you figure out the perfect location for your family portraits. I want the location to not just be beautiful, but be meaningful to you and your family. That might mean we visit a neighborhood park, like we did here with Mt Tabor. It could also mean having a portrait session within the comfort of your own home. Or we could explore your neighborhood and hit up some of your family's favorite places to hang out.

I would love to be your Portland lifestyle family photographer, so contact me and together we can come up with the ideal spot for your family photos.
