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!
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
Mr. and Mrs. Keska sure know how to throw a party! Confetti, a gorgeous custom neon sign made by The Tiny Spoon, food by Boke Bowl, cocktails by Merit Badge, and Questlove as the wedding DJ?! Perry and I attended this wedding as guests, yet I couldn't help but bring my camera and my little 50mm lens anyway. And I'm glad I did!
