Candid Family Photo Session near Portland, Oregon

Sweet and Candid Family Photo Session

Jenean and I became fast friends while planning her photo session, bonding over Instagram messages about dress choices and raising preteens. She was really excited to get candid shots of her family being themselves, and her enthusiasm helped make her photos turn out beautiful! 

I asked Jenean why she decided to book me for her family photos and she said, "Your photography style looked very natural and unscripted. Much like our lives these days! Go with the flow, capture the smiles as they come."

She get's me.

When asked which photos were her favorite, she said, "I have multiple faves! Haha. Picking one fave is literally impossible. I love the ones of my two girls loving on each other, mama heart melting session!..."

Her favorite moment during the session was watching her girls laugh. And there was plenty of that as they all took turns tickling each other!

When we were all done, I noticed the clouds turning colors as the sun set, so I took one last shot.
