Family Photographers in Portland, Oregon
For Maxine's mommy and me session, we ventured out to a beautiful park in Portland around sunset and it was a photographer's dream! Usually, this field is cut, but we got lucky and it was super overgrown and even luckier... there were random flowers all over and the sky was full of wispy clouds.
The dresses the girls are wearing were selected from my client closet, which I brought freshly steamed and ready to dance in. I love doing this for families, it's one less thing they have to do to prepare. I even bring a pop-up changing tent! Maxine's brown dress is from Dress & Muse but is sold out, and her daughter's dress is from Joyfolie.
I had them play together a lot, dance, tell jokes, and cuddle. Her son was also super into collecting flowers and giving them to his mom and sister, it was so sweet!
Keep scrolling to see my favorites from this mommy and me session with Maxine and her 2 kids.
And this is when he starts flower collecting. He was looking for the best ones, of course.
See those wispy clouds? Pure magic.
At one point, they declared that the flowers smelled like poop. I'm not sure if I agree with that one, but it was pretty funny and made everyone laugh.
Moms playing with their daughter's hair gets my every time. My mom used to do this when I was little and I LOVED it.
Joking around with kids and getting them to laugh out loud produces adorable photos like the one above. Her giggle face is adorable.
"OMG that's so amazing.... I immediately teared up!! He was so silly and how you managed to capture that moment is .... *sigh*....... incredibly special! You are so wonderful!"
Dance parties are my favorite, and it's even better when families get into it! They get to pick the music, so that helps 😉

These are gorgeous shots! I love that you’ve captured the light just perfectly and those colors are just beautiful!
Wow, you really did luck out with those flowers! I love the idea of a mommy and me session. That would make the BEST Mother’s Day gift!
You’re right! The lighting in these shots is magical, blending in perfectly with the vibe. I can’t get enough of those mama snuggles though, they are just precious.
