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!
