Earlier this year I did a photoshoot with the Scholes family that featured a Panama-Jack-meets-Oregon-rain theme at Jenkins Estate. We met again before the holidays for a more casual shoot, that included running a few UofO Duck’s better plays.
Bearing witness to the humor and love across three generations of a dedicated family, and the intimacy of a 60+ year marriage, left me with a lump in my throat. And immense gratitude for my job.
No. These are not engagement photos. These are friends of mine. Whose wedding I attended almost eight years ago. And I’ve been honored to watch their sweet lovin grow that much stronger in the time since.
We talked cars. We raced cars. We walked. We looked at winter vegetables. We hit up the playground at the neighborhood school. And we made googly eyes at dear, sweet baby Logan, who slept like a champ through it all.
Thanks for a great afternoon Kamp family! And the deelicious, um, celebratory beverage when we finished.
Looking waaay back into my archives of 2011 holiday family photoshoots, that now seem a lifetime ago, I was genuinely touched by the relationships + moments I was invited to document and share in. I had a marathon of photoshoots the last few weeks before the Holidays, and each presented such a unique story about family, how they’re built and the infinite number of ways that they can operate, I never tired of the process.
So in turn, I wanted to share some of those moments with you…regardless of the fact we are now almost a month into the New Year.
I had the great fortune of starting with none other than Miss Claire to kick off the season. I will NEVER tire of watching + photographing this sweet, sassy, bright young thing blossom into the amazing human I know she is destined to be.
