Family Photos in Ocean Park

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Those first family photos after you become a single mama are SO special in a way that I don’t even think I can put into words. Being able to do family photos in Ocean Park for my best friend Brittany and her three wonderful children was such a freaking HONOR. I adored every single second of it!

I’ve watched these kiddos grow up and I have such a special connection with them now over the course of the last 2 years or so. All of our children behave like they’re all siblings and it’s the greatest thing ever. It made perfect sense to do their family photos in Ocean Park, because it’s one of their go-to spots together! We got so many amazing photos, and the best part is that the kids were actually the ones who kept coming up with ideas for poses! It was hard to get my own ideas in there hahaha. I absolutely love it when kids get super into family photos!!

Brittany is one of my most favorite humans on this planet, and she’s hands down one of the best mamas (and travel buddy) I know. She is incredible with her three littles, and she was absolutely meant to be a mama! I think it absolutely shines in these photos just how much they all love each other, and how much she loves motherhood.

Anyway, check out some of my faves from this very special family session 🙂

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images.
