Alex came home from Germany a couple weeks before the due date to see Ashley one more time as they prepare for the birth of their first born. Sweet little Palmer knew dad was home as couldn’t wait to meet him. Within 24 hours of Alex arriving, she was born.
My favorite thing about being a photographer is being allowed into the lives of strangers to document the most important moments in their lives. I met Ashley and Alex on their wedding day and have enjoyed every minute of getting to know them sine then!
Last year they came out to Oregon for their maternity session. It was totally epic and amazing. Here’s a link: https://kelliannejordan.com/2019/10/24/sparks-lake-maternity/
With Ashley living on the East Coast, that meant I couldn’t be there for the birth or newborn photos of Palmer, but they decided to visit the West Coast so Grandma and Grandpa could meet her.
Of course we had to capture this special time since they won’t be together very often. Ashley and Palmer live on the East Coast while Alex works in Germany so this photo session really was special. Not only is it documenting Grandma and Grandpa with Palmer, but also Ashley, Alex and Palmer together as a whole family!
Ashley and Alex,
You two are an amazing couple! I know Palmer is going to have an incredible life, where ever you take her. I hope this time doesn’t go too quickly for you and I hope you can cherish every moment. Thank you for letting me capture these images for you. I can’t wait to photograph your family again!
The licker family came to Bend, Oregon to celebrate their parent’s 50th anniversary! It’s so amazing to be able to photograph so many 50th anniversaries. It seems like a lifetime to be with someone. Actually, it is a lifetime!! John and Diana have been married for 50 years and that truly is something to celebrate.
The Ficker family met me at Drake Park in downtown Bend for a few family memories to be captured with their family reunion photo session. Then they walked off to 900 Wall for a delicious celebration dinner. These are just a few of their awesome family portraits!
These fall family photos at Drake Park in Bend, Oregon were absolutely beautiful and so much fun! The beautiful yellow leaves were scattered on the ground throughout the park creating the perfect fall landscape. We captured so many beautiful fall family photos while having a ton of fun. I think you can really see the joy in the images and I just love the glow of the sun that created that extra warm vibe for these cozy fall family photos.
Sara and her kids gathered together at Drake Park in Bend, Oregon for a portrait session to give as a gift to dad. I love that these photos include baby!
