Felix is 2!

It really seems like it was just a few months ago that I was asked to take some photos around Felix’s first birthday, but in reality it’s been an entire YEAR! It was so fun to meet up again with Damiana and Lex to get some photos of Felix at 2! Our first attempt at this session got rained out, in true Portland fashion, but we got lucky on our second try at the beautiful Cathedral Park. Thank you, Damiana and Lex! <3

Hillarie + Udie + Avi!

When two of your favorite clients call you as they’re passing through town to ask for a family session the next day, you re-arrange some meetings and say YES! I shot Hillarie and Udie’s dreamy backyard wedding back in 2016 (which, by the way, feels like ten years ago) and this time we met up in that same backyard and I got to meet the newest member of their family, Avi! It was a perfect fall day, and the sun was shining in SW Portland. Here are some of my favorites from the session!

Happy Birthday, Felix!

Damiana and I have been friends online for more years than either of us can count. We grew up in different states, but now we live within a few miles of each other in NE Portland. I had so much fun meeting her, Lex, and their son Felix for the first time last weekend. We met up at Tanner Springs Park, and got the full range of Portland weather in the short time we spent there! Felix loved crawling around the park, meeting a dog that was about the same size as him, and watching the city bus roar by.

Thank you, Damiana and Lex for thinking of me for Felix's one-year-old photos! Congrats on making it through your first year of parenting—that's no small feat. And most importantly, Happy Birthday Felix! <3
