April 28, 2022 - A Session with Plenty of Room to Play

By Samantha Shannon, Samantha Shannon Photography

Portland, Oregon



About This Session:

This was the first time this sweet family had done professional photos together. The mom, Julie, wanted to be sure to capture the connection her children have with them and with each other at this age, so we spent a lot of time exploring the park and just giving the kids time to be themselves! We chose a location with plenty of room for them to play in a field where we'd get warm light filtering through the fall leaves. Our focus was on moments with a quiet, candid feel. Fall family photos in Oregon can sometimes be rainy, but we were lucky with a crisp, clear day while the leaves were still on the trees. I adored working with this family!
