Kate and Brandon are so cute with their sweet dog. They moved to Bend, Oregon a few months ago and embraced the Bend forest and snowy environment for their engagement photography session. I love all the fun sign and props they brought too, like the one their dog was holding saying, “My humans are getting married!”.
One smokey August day I met the Wills family in Sunriver, Oregon at the Sunriver Resort for their family reunion photography session. We had a ton of fun photographing their family, capturing natural portraits of their group. The smoke even made the sun glow red and reflect off the water, creating a subtle softness and beautiful atmosphere.
Jeff and Peggy celebrated 45 years of marriage with their kids and grandkids this year at the Sunriver Resort in Central Oregon this summer. It is so encouraging to see couples happily in love after 45 years together. Jeff and Peggy couldn’t stop smiling throughout their session. Their joy for each other and for life was contagious.
Not only did we capture beautiful family portraits of each of their kids families, but we also got some great images of their grandkids being as cute as can be. Their highest priority was to get a few casual family portraits of their whole gang to hang above their fireplace and we definitely did that. I couldn’t resist getting a few portraits of the happy couple too. I love the combination of canvas prints and framed barn wood print that we created for the home. Now they can remember this joyful time everyday.
This Southern California family flew up to Central Oregon to stay for a week at the Sunriver Resort in Sunriver, Oregon in honor of their mom’s birthday. As a special birthday gift they bought a gift certificate for a family reunion photography session. This family has a house on the golf course in Sunriver and was so excited to have photos of their family at this special location.
One of my favorite things about this group was the perfect color combination they chose. The bright colors popped but also blended well together. I did my best to capture beautiful fun candids and casual lifestyle portraits to really represent this casual group’s personality.
They had a lot of fun and even took some silly faces photos. Although my favorite part of the session was dad playing Weird All to calm the baby down. You can’t totally tell, but she was crying the whole time. Overall, it was the perfect birthday gift for mom and they loved the photographs.
This group has been coming together for a week of family fun for several years at the Sunriver Resort in Sunriver, Oregon. Each year they gather to swim at the SHARK, play games and simps spend time together. The women in this group have been friends since college, before any of them were married. They are now each celebrating 50 plus years of marriage with one member sadly missing form the group. Meeting at their house for the family reunion photography session was perfect. We were able to use the large area being the house with natural landscapes for their session. What made it even better was that those not being photographed sipped wine and tasted cheese on the patio while waiting for their turn. This group of friends wanted to remember this time and the fun they’ve had now and for years with a large group photo, individual family photos and generational photos.
