Columbia River Gorge Family Photography
My absolute favorite spot for family photography is here at this spot in The Gorge! It takes about an hour from Portland, and it’s completely worth that drive. You get the sweeping views, awesome rock formations, the river, and a beautiful sunrise or sunset. In this case, we went at sunrise but we had to wait out a rainstorm so we got started a little late. The clouds overtook the sun for most of it, but it was still obviously beautiful. Definitely worth waking up at 4:30 in the morning! The weekend we went, there was rain, rain, and more rain, so the fact that we caught even a sliver of sun was a miracle.
I have photographed this family twice before, once for an in-home session where they are Voodoo Doughnuts in bed, and once for a daddy/daughter shoot as a surprise Mother’s Day gift! How cute is that? I was super excited to see them again this year!
Giggles and Family Cuddles
We started off the session with a couple games to get everyone warm because it was a little chilly at 6:30am! That also helps to loosen everyone up and get some natural smiles. These two girls are so funny, and incredibly sweet. I love how cuddly they are and also full of energy. It was a good combo!
I love how expressive they all are, and how much fun they clearly have together.
Traveling Reclamation Dress
I was able to rent a gorgeous Reclamation dress which will be traveling around the Unites States this year. If you’re not familiar with these dresses, they are all one-of-a-kind, make from vintage lace, and quite expensive. I’ll have this dress again for a few days in July and also September. If you’re interested in wearing it, send me a message for more details on dates!
