THE JOURNAL

Oregon Coast Family Session

I remember meeting Amber at her college graduation party at her parent’s home (our dear neighbors) several years ago.  She had a bright smile, curly hair, and yet her kindness is what I remember most about her. 

With a heart for teaching, she moved to a small town in Alaska, where she then met and married the love of her life. Waving at you, Mike! 😉 

 She typically comes back to Oregon to visit with family every year, and this time, Amber reached out to me to photograph their ENTIRE family! 

 When I walked through the door to their vacation house at the Oregon coast,  I saw little Miles playing on the floor.  The last time I saw him he was a little pink newborn, and now he had soft blond hair and expressive eyes and was just adorable!!  It was also fun to see the extended family interact together…you could tell they sincerely enjoyed each other. 

 I think about how special it was for them to be together, all under one roof because I realize what a privilege and rare blessing that is.

 Thank you, Amber (and the rest of your sweet family), for allowing me to capture this special time in your lives. I hope you enjoy these photos and look forward to seeing you next summer!  <3

It's an easy treat to make and it can be served on its own with something warm to drink, or topped with creamy vanilla ice cream...or if you're like me, both!
