Liana + Ramon // Columbia River Gorge Couple's Session

Liana and Ramon were married over the winter in their home state of Minnesota, but they didn’t have any photos taken at the time. I was so honored to do this session for them while they were visiting family and friends in The Dalles! Liana wanted to do the shoot somewhere outdoorsy, near water, and I scouted this amazing spot a few weeks beforehand (you don’t have to twist my arm to get me to go exploring in the gorge!) It was a great location for our shoot, even if a little windy. And! The rain gods actually smiled down on me for once and the skies cleared up just in time to keep us dry!

Felix is 2 // Family Photo Session at Cathedral Park

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

Happy Birthday, Felix! // 1-year old photo session at Tanner Springs Park

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
