I photographed this beautiful family a year ago (minus two siblings) when I was home visiting family in Oregon, and this year when I was in Oregon they asked me to photograph their entire family! It was fun to see how excited they were to all be together again, and I’m honored I got to help document that sweet moment in their lives. We went to one of Salem’s beautiful spots – Deepwood Museum and Gardens. I feel like every time I go there I notice something new and beautiful. Not only is it the grounds of a historic, beautiful home, and a lush garden of blooming flowers, winding paths and tall trees, it’s where I had my senior prom! One favorite part from the shoot was when I had the siblings choose where they wanted to be photographed for their individual shots, and I felt like they each picked places that emphasized their best colors and features, as well as mirrored their personalities. This family is a dream to work with, and I loved getting to know them better.
