With tiny little Valentina the Villagomez family expanded their hearts to become a family of four. She has been the tiniest baby I have photographed. My favorite part about newborns is their super curly qualities and the tiny little fists they can’t help but form. The way they wrap their tiny hands around their loved ones. Did I mentione that her big sister is one! Still just a baby herself and already feeling so proud. This family is incredibly beautiful and Im so happy I had a chance to photograph them in this new chapter in their life.

I am so damn honored to have seen this family twice this year. I cant believe how gorgeous and big baby L has gotten. I met this family back early this year as I was a backup for their home birth. They blew me away with their kindness and just how excited they were to wecome the surprise baby. I eneded up capturing his incredible arrival.

Also can I say just how beautiful this sunset was, we were lucky with such a warm October day. The kids had a blast exploring and you can see just how much they all love each other.

Oh, Portland, you left me amazed, and so did the incredible Jayme Ford, from The Paper Deer Photography She styled this family so beautifully. Seeing her work her magic was so special. I’ve admired Jayme for such a long long time. To be honest, the whole weekend was incredible. But seeing these kiddos so in their element was wonderful.

They evoked that insane family love and so much darn fun! Brian is such a lucky dude to be surrounded by so much beauty. This family encompasses everything you want clients to be and more. It was such an honor to get to capture them alongside so many friends.

Cheers to the chaos and beauty of family sessions.

New life near the holidays.

I photographed this sweet little family right before Christmas. They were so gracious and inviting. Meeting new parents always takes me back to my own experiences. Baby W is the luckiest little dude. His parent gushed on him the whole time. My favorite part was getting the first baby, their pup, more willing to be near the baby. I think he was feeling protective since a new human was there. Anyway I’m glad he was all over the baby as well. Their beautiful home not only served as a wonderful backdrop for all the love but it was cozy and in between such a cute town. Take a peek at their session

 

In the baby’s room

The city lights are
Milky
In the curtains…
Breath
Gentle as rain,
Sleep
Quiet as snowflakes”
