I'm pleased to introduce you to 3 of my favorite people in the world.
My brother Jed, sister-in-law Danielle and niece Joie.

Over Thanksgiving I was asked to snap a few quick photos of this bunch in order to give them options for their holiday card.  Not one to pass up the opportunity to photograph beautiful people, I obliged.

The air was foggy, COLD and the sun had begun its decent so we didn't have much time, but we hurried outside to get a few shots.  In a matter of 3 (yes THREE!) minutes we got a handful of gems...

And then I lovingly booted my niece out of the scene and grabbed a few of just the love birds.  It seems that once kids are involved, Moms and Dads everywhere lack on photos of just them together, in love.  
So in about 30 seconds we got these gems of just them, being in love.

When was the last time you took a few minutes to capture fresh images of your family and loved ones?
It really doesn't take as much time, or as much effort as you may think!

Bost Family | Portland Family Photographer

This is the Bost family.
They are all kinds of awesome, and very special to me.

Jenni was the first friend I made when I moved to Portland 18 months ago.  We bonded over wine, photography and blogging.  She's remained one of my closest friends, and I am very grateful for her and her little family.

Jenni and Brian had family in town for the Thanksgiving holiday, and it was the perfect occasion for a photo session!  Enjoy these pictures of Jenni, Brian, and Brian's siblings with their families!

Allow me to introduce you to the King family...

Aren't they the cutest?!  They are the sweetest family, and obviously completely photogenic.  I met up with this adorbs family a few weeks ago in their home located in NE Portland.  We were wanting to capture photos of the family enjoying their Sunday routine of pancakes (in pj's of course!) and playing at the park.  The weather didn't fully cooperate with us, but the colors were well worth the walk!
