Winter PDX Family Photos
“Now give each other some love!” I yelled as Kristianna and Philip threw their arms around their boys for a quick cuddle. That lasted about 1.5 seconds before the two brothers ran off again to find out what mysteries might be hiding just behind the next tree.
This is how most sessions go with little kids, especially ones with as much energy as these two! But this is to be expected and it just makes the sweet moments that much more special, don’t you think?
The wind was blowing like crazy when we first got there, and we were a little worried that the kids might be too cold because wind + cold temps are not my favorite. But once we walked to the spot, the trees blocked almost all the wind! The sun helped to keep us warm and I’m really loving all of these bare trees with the sun shining through. And look at Kristianna’s amazingly beautiful hair!
Outfitting the family for photos
Kristianna did such a great job on their outfits, and it all came together so well. Her dress is from Baltic Born, which is one of my favorite websites for women’s dresses. The little boys are wearing Cat & Jack sweaters. Originally the boys had different sweater options, but after a few texts back and forth, she decided to go with these and I just love the texture that they add to their outfits.
Dads always know how to harness the toddler energy and get the giggles.
These two together 😍. When Kristianna booked me, she mentioned that despite hardships, she and her husband were still very much in love after eight years, and hoped that could be seen in the photos. Nailed it!
Love these two shots to finish out the session. This last image was on the walk back to the car and the boys STILL had so much energy. They wanted to run and to race. Kristianna and I were chatting a bit and the boys were farther ahead, and I grabbed this fun shot. I feel like it is just SO them.
“We absolutely love the photos and are very happy with how everything turned out.” – Kristianna
