There is nothing that matters more than family in the whole wide world. Seeing it grow, fueled by the candid laughter of your children and their innocent youth… their sweet care-free spirits return you to the core of what life is all about – enjoying the small things. But more often than not, you forget to stop and inhale what is going on in that precise moment, in the present. Eventually, some memories are remembered, others lay forgotten, and time flows like a river, rushing to the future. But what if I told you that you can turn back time and soak in all of the meaningful memories? This is precisely why I became a Portland family photographer.

Having the ability to document precious moments and turn them into visual memories is a blessing! In the end, it is not just about the beautiful photos, it is about the emotions that they will evoke for decades to come. It is all about your story.

Every time I get to capture the story of a loving family, it is such a rewarding experience! Recently I had the pleasure to portray one of the sweetest families I have ever met. For the shoot, we went to Indian Beach, Oregon Coast. The day was filled with a relaxed and laid-back vibe, relishing every simple moment of joy and running around the beach.

As a Portland newborn photographer, it was my honor to document their newest little member and witness such heartfelt parent love. From breastfeeding to the magic of their playful moments, the session embodied the candid beauty of their family charm. And the scenery? The beautiful warm colors of the sunset complemented their story flawlessly! The beach provided the perfect setting to simply let go, run, play, and feel like they were the only people in this world… enjoying their bubble. Being their Portland family photographer was an amazing experience!

When it comes to the journalistic approach to capturing photos, the Oregon Coast is something truly extraordinary and special. Firstly, many of the beaches are safe for children and fantastic for having open space while enjoying great light. The whole coast has a unique rugged feel that makes it a great spot for unique backdrops. Not to mention the lush vegetation that simply frames your memories. And the open Pacific? Divine horizon.

For example, Indian Beach occasionally graces you with tree trunks being washed away, which prove to be wonderful props for family sessions, just like this one! Also, the sand is perfectly soft so your little ones can easily take their shoes off and run along the beach. The whole Oregon Coast exudes dreamy settings which are ideal for documenting intimate and meaningful family memories. Most of the spots are easy to get to, which is important for parents with kids. In addition, there are many recreational areas around.

If you wish to learn more about where you can have your own unique Oregon Coast family session, feel free to get in touch with me. As an experienced Portland family photographer, I would be delighted to share my suggestions and turn your memorable moments into heartfelt photos.
