Last, but CERTAINLY not least, The Unger Family

"Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are children born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them." Psalms 127:3-5a
I had this verse running through my head the whole time I was with the Unger family. These guys were amazing on so many levels, and their love for each other and the Lord is such a rare thing to behold and I was SO blessed and honored to be able to capture these beautiful families. They are such a tight-knit group of people and it was so special to get to be a part of it, even for just a short time on Sunday. They were my last Portland sessions and it was such a special way to end the trip. It was also such a blast shooting at their very own location, Unger Farms. I loved the property and it was that much more special that it belonged to the family. We begin with the two people who started it all...
Next up, ZACH and ERIN, and their adorable little family! Erin is SO incredibly photogenic, I had such a hard time narrowing their photos down. :)
After them came RICHARD and LEAH, with their 3 beautiful children! These kids have so much personality, there is nothing I can say about them that their faces aren't already saying for them!!
And finally, DAVID and RACHEL, with their four little angels. I just got to photograph these guys a few months ago, but I think I could keep taking pictures of them on a regular basis and never tire of it. I love their family dynamic so much and all of these kids truly are as sweet as they come.
           Thanks again guys, for letting me be a part of your family memories this year! You have such a beautiful family, and I had such a blast with you! I wish you all the very best!!

Kim and her two BEAUTIES!!

This is my good friend from high school, Kim. I love her and her kids and I really love getting to take pictures of them! I don't get to see her nearly enough, especially now that I live in Medford. But that just makes these times that much more special!

This one turned out to be one of my favorites from the whole session!  We were finished taking pictures and she had put on her jacket to go.  I saw how adorable she was in it and I made her take just a couple more pictures for me!  Such a cutie!!

The Douglas kiddos

I've got one word to describe this session, ENERGY!!! And these two had it in abundance!! They were basically running circles around me as I was trying to capture their cuteness! I was actually surprised when I went to look through the pictures that my photos weren't all action shots of them. But oh how I love them. I've been able to capture these guys since they were both newbies and I love when I get to do that. And among many other things, they have one really special thing in common; those crazy beautiful blue eyes!! Yummy.

The Leonard Family

These guys were new to me this trip, and what I had heard about them from more than one person was, "You're gonna love them, they are GORGEOUS." And right they were, WOWZA!! But not only that, this family was as sweet as sweet can be. All three kids were so easy going and compliant with everything I wanted them to do, and the dynamic between Mom and Dad was so beautiful; so evidently in love. I loved every minute I had with these guys and consider it a privilege they chose me to take their very first EVER family photos!!
