This session was so, so special for me! I photographed Brooke and Michael's wedding in Arizona last year and it was one of my favorites ever! They specifically chose their wedding venue, The Windmill Winery, because of its lush green grounds that look NOTHING like AZ! They share a mutual love for the Pacific North West so we tried to get as many photos with the greenery there as possible! Later that year they welcomed the cutest baby girl Myla! Once I moved to Oregon, Brooke messaged me saying she'd love family photos done in Oregon if they came out to Portland to visit Michael's family over the summer. Little did she know a few weeks later Michael emailed me asking to get a gift certificate for family session to give to Brooke for Mother's Day! It was so sweet! They came out to Portland and we got to catch up and take family photos surrounded by the hills of pine trees in the tall grass and fields of wildflowers that could only be found in the PNW. I love this beautiful family of three and am so happy I got to photograph their family in my new state that means so much to them!
