Donuts, champagne, giggles & tickles… Is there any better way to start your day!? I spent a beautiful morning with three generations of this sweet family, playing around Delaware Park. For her birthday, Kathy (aka Nana) requested a photo shoot with her babies and grandbabies, and I loved being the one to capture that for her. Their session took place on her actual birthday, so the family made it extra special by packing a little breakfast picnic, which they enjoyed next to Hoyt Lake. How cute is that?!

Check out their multigenerational, extra adorable session below and contact us today to talk about booking your own!

Do you remember Mandy & Greg’s amazing Mayan Riviera wedding?! We were so excited to catch up with these guys again while we were traveling in the Pacific Northwest earlier this month AND thrilled to finally meet their sweet babe, Lewis! Get ready for cuteness overload with this little guy and his BIG smiles (especially when his furry big brother Finn gets involved). We met at gorgeous Cathedral Park in Portland for a rainy morning session, before we continued our journey to the coast (more on that coming soon to our family blog, Little Herd Adventures!)

It was so nice to see M&G again, and SO wonderful to meet their little mister!! Scroll down to see our session together.

Did you catch Part One of our shoot with this sweet crew yet? If not, be sure to pop over to this post and see the fun we had together during the first part of their Storytelling Session. This family was so wonderful to spend time with, and I just adored their kitchen karaoke and dining room dance parties! Scroll down to see the end of our unposed, relaxed portraits together, and email us to schedule your own!

We’re so excited to jump into June with this joy-filled, fun-loving family session! Sprinklers, hopscotch, bubbles, birthday cake & more… All of the elements of summer showed up for our backyard session! These babes sure were sweet, and I loved spending my evening with Carmelo, Isla, Elena, Nora and their parents, capturing this crew as they are. No poses, no matching outfits, no plans, no stress… Just beautiful childhood memories, documented for years to come.
