Natural Light Family Photography in Portland, Oregon
As a Portland family photographer we have been lucky enough to have met some of our clients at the time of their engagement shoots and have been present to document their wedding, newborn sessions, and yearly family photos. Being able to document families as they change and grow is one of favorite elements of being photographers. Having family photos is an important keepsake and we are invested in making the process as smooth as possible. We look forward meeting you and your family!
About our Family Sessions
Our sessions take place on location at nearby parks and open spaces in the Portland area and range from 30 to 45 minutes in length. Shooting outdoors not only gives us the benefit of natural light but also helps some of our younger clients with getting their wiggles out throughout the photo shoot. We've got some great locations if you need suggestions but are open to meeting at a location that is special to your family.
We offer both mini and full sessions. All sessions include an online client gallery to share with friends and family, as well as access to the final edited images for download. The photoshoot portion of these two sessions are identical, however the full and mini sessions allows us to offer two different price points which differ in the amount of high resolution images that will be available for download.
Mini sessions are priced at $250. These sessions include 10 edited high-resolution images for download with additional downloads that can be purchased for $10 each. The full gallery of edited images is available for print purchase through the gallery print lab.
Our full sessions are priced at $300 and include all of the edited high-resolution images for download. A typical shoot will yield 20+ edited images.
Some of our recent work
Some helpful things to think about...
While a little rain won’t stop us from getting some great pictures the best time to book family sessions in Portland is late Spring through early Fall in order to optimize our ability to snap some images of your family in natural light. We prefer to book our calendar in advance but understand that life happens. We do our best to accommodate last minute bookings when possible.
Most sessions take place at nearby parks and open spaces within the Portland metro area. We've got plenty of location suggestions but we know that sometimes shooting in a location that your family is comfortable with can make the resulting images even more beautiful. We are also avid hikers and explorers so we don’t mind finding a location off the beaten path. We are happy to create a hiking “adventure session” for your family, though there may be an impact on pricing depending on the remote nature of your chosen location.
Our sessions are incredibly low impact and focus on capturing natural moments. That being said we know that it can take a little extra planning to keep the younger members of our families focused. A lot of our families have let us know that talking to your kids about the session a couple days before has helped them become more comfortable with the experience.
Our main concern is that you are comfortable and are wearing outfits that you feel good in, as this really shows through in the final images. In our experience we have found that casual tends to work a lot better than formal and having different accessories (hat, scarves, jackets) to play with can bring some variety and fun into the session. We have also had lots of families bring a large, comfy blanket to their sessions, which we recommend.
