We're so excited to showcase Wild Valley Photography again, this time with some fabulous Motherhood Mini Sessions. Amy is an amazing motherhood photographer and is based in Newberg. Here's what she shared about these mini sessions:
I recently hosted Motherhood Mini Sessions at Bob & Crystal Rilee Park in Newberg. This is such a gorgeous location. It's a Century farm located on Parrett Mountain. There are mossy old barns, a lush flower garden, a meadow of wildflowers, and lots of hiking trails. If you haven't been there... GO! It's so lovely!
Motherhood sessions are so close to my heart, I love capturing the unique connection between mamas and their children. Most moms that I know are usually the official photographer for their family and are therefore rarely in front of the lens. The Motherhood Mini Sessions are a great opportunity for mamas to get in front of the camera and document those sweet moments of loving on their kids.
If you'd like to book your own Motherhood session send me a message. I'd love to work with you to document this special time in your life.
Ronda with LaRae's Images is sharing a super fun session today for our feature! She is a portrait photographer based in Carlton, Oregon, right in the heart of Yamhill County. Ronda shared with us about a recent session she did in Beaverton:
This session is so very dear to my heart. My grandson Owen was born with Down Syndrome. He's 2 years old. Ever since his birth I have been involved with supporting the DSDN group: Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network. This session was done with Owen and a group of his Homies with extra Chromies. They are all wearing T-shirts from Kale Chips. The owner, Vanessa, herself has a little with Ds. She makes these T's and sells them. This is a true passion of mine to give back and give of my time and talents. Having moms and even dads get together with their children and know that they are supported, is very important. To watch all the kids play, laugh, and even cry because they were a bit overwhelmed just goes to show you that these kids are more alike than different from typical children.
I held this event at Jenkins Estate in Beaverton, because I knew they would have a spot big enough for all of the kids to play and have fun. So I called ahead and got the O.K. to have it there. Our next meet up is Aug 10th!
Today we're featuring a family session from Samantha Shannon Photography! Samantha specializes in light and airy photography for weddings and families. If you're looking for sunny photographs that feel like summertime, she creates those! Today, she's sharing a recent family photo session.
Family sessions in the summertime are always my favorite! I believe that most families would find their yearly portraits less stressful if they scheduled them in the summer. Most people wait until the holidays, when they need their annual holiday family photo for cards, to schedule their session. But isn't that the busiest time of the year? In the summer, kids are out of school, illnesses are mostly at bay, and your schedule is more flexible. And as an added bonus, there's more sunshine! We can do outdoor sessions in nature without having to worry about rescheduling because of rain. See? So. Many. Positives!
Anyways, this sweet family was a wedding client for a wedding at Green Villa Barn in Independence, Oregon a few years ago. It's such a rewarding part of my job to not only experience a wedding day with couples who grow to become friends, but to then get to see them again as their families grow and they need family photos! Emily and Ryan met up with me for family photos at Champoeg State Park near Newberg. We had a beautiful evening and loved seeing them as a family of THREE! Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session!
