The Kadaplakels and The Schworer Family – Family Portraits – Portland, Oregon

I am thrilled to share the images created for this beautiful family. The Schworers were in Portland visiting mom and dad, and attending a friend’s wedding, yet made time for this session booked way back in May. Every moment captured in these photographs speaks of the love that binds this beautiful family. These images are a visual testimony to the blessing Little Miss O is … a prayer answered so beautifully. They were such a delight to photograph! And what a happy little trooper Miss O was!

We started out by quickly going over some of the sketches I had drawn of my vision for this session. A vision that spurred from all the little stories and details I gathered through our pre-shoot consultation.

It was a gorgeous Saturday morning, and to my surprise, the light just kept getting strangely beautiful as the morning progressed. The distinct smell of smoke that soon filled the air , clarified the reason for this strange light… the unfortunate forest fires raging through parts of Washington and Oregon. Worked in our favor though!


Here’s a little princess who loves to feel the earth beneath her feet!  Really, she will throw a fit if you try to get her into any kind of footwear!  I mean, how adorable is that! ❤   Little Miss O, you totally stole my heart! This is one of those sessions that leaves me satisfied and proud of what I do. I can’t wait to see these images adorn the walls of their homes.

Here’s a little behind the scenes shot…thanks to my client!
