Fun and Candid Fall Family Photography in Portland

August 18, 2020

Portland Candid Family Photographer

I’m finally blogging this candid family session from last fall, do you think I waited long enough? Lol. I’m not always fast at blog posts but at least it’s getting done eventually! It makes sense to post this one now considering that fall is coming up really soon. How did that happen?! Is it time for Pumpkin Spice Lattes, beautiful Portland fall colors, and cozy sweaters already? If you’d like to get on my calendar for a family photography session this fall, you can now easily book online!

This family was celebrating dad’s recent return from deployment, which is a nice reminder of how precious time is with those we love. We started out the session with Aaron in his uniform because it was really important for them to have photos of him wearing it, as well as regular clothes. I always bring a changing tent so that made the outfit switch quick and easy. Their son was in the best mood once he realized that the session was going to be fun, rather than stiff and boring. We had a great time playing and joking around so there were plenty of laughs!

I asked Rhonda what her favorite photo was from the session and she couldn’t pick just one. Here are her five absolute favorites:

“I booked you because I saw photos from Candace’s family shoot and absolutely loved the photos and the way you captured them. I wanted that too.”

“I was surprised how much I loved the photos. I’m never really happy with the way I look in photos. And it seemed like my son was being so silly, I wasn’t confident there would be any where he wasn’t sticking his tongue out! There much have been hundreds all together to have had so many that were so good! You are obviously an extremely talented photographer! And we had so much fun, it was more like just a fun time with our family, rather than a photo shoot! Thank you!!” – Rhonda

The lighting in these photos is so beautiful and really captures the family so well. I see why she can’t decide which is her favorite photo!

What sweet and loving moments you have captured of this family! I also love that you bring a changing tent with you to sessions. So smart!
