Mud and Poop Can’t Ruin the Fun | Portland Oregon Lifestyle Family Photographer

I was so excited when Thelma contacted me about getting family photos done because they were roadtripping all the way from Canada! This family drove a very long way just to come see our beautiful city! I was so anxious to meet them and document their family’s playful spirit.

The session started with their oldest son slipping and getting mud all over his pants, but the parents just laughed it off and continued with our adventure. Then about halfway through our time together, he somehow managed to stick his hand in dog poop! I swear, kids just gravitate toward anything messy. His dad took him down to the lake edge to wash off his hand, and then we continued on (we were all just trying to avoid touching his hand, haha).

But through all the mud and the poop, everyone still stayed happy and playful! We had a great evening and I hope they come back to visit again!
