a mama friend of mine came into town this week. she brought her daughter and her husband. our little ones were born within about 8 days of each other. in this age of social media, i’m pretty sure we all have those friends with kids and husbands we have never met. so this was my first time meeting her little girl. it was so fun to see her daughter, and see my friend interact with her and my own kids interact with her daughter. she wanted to do a mama/daughter shoot and so we headed out to the river to explore. we are getting a crazy heat wave and portland has so much sunlight during the summer (i kick myself for not having blackout curtains every morning around 5:45 am) but this is a great shady location in the morning. lots of driftwood, beach, water, green leaves to check out. we had fun writing in the sand, splashing in rivers and climbing on the driftwood. if you are interested in a session in this location, please shoot me an email at email@example.com and remember to like oh so photo on Facebook!
