Mountaintop Session in Ashland Oregon | Family Photos

Meet Grace and her sweet little family! I've been their family photographer for a few years now, and I love working with them. "I love Olivia's style because it matches the vision I have for our family photos", explains Grace, "Olivia is always a delight to work with, and she captures my children in such a way that the photos always come out better than I imagined. My girls adore her and always smile for her. She's a mom, so I think she has a unique connection with children and an ability to make them laugh and have fun! Most of all, she always listens to my desires, and makes my ideas come to life. That's so important in a photographer, and the reason why we keep coming back!" 

Her little girls are five and three, and are tons of fun. I tried to get both posed and candid shots of them as they ran around, enjoying the fresh mountain air. The family requested a shoot that celebrated their love of Southern Oregon, and I scouted a location in Ashland, Oregon, nestled in the mountains, and surrounded by towering trees. We met up for their session in the fall, before the rain and cold set in, and documented this season in their lives as parents of little ones. I love that Grace always asks for a few photos of just her and her hubby to capture their love and marriage. As all parents of small children know, getting any time together is a juggling act, and yet, photos together are such a special treasure. These will be the photos your children look back on in years to come, and quality pictures of their mom and dad are something you will never regret. Contact me today to schedule a shoot of your own!

“Life is going to be filled with mountains and valleys, and you will choose your path.
Be kind to everyone you meet along the journey,
and keep your heart filled with joy...then, everything you do will be tempered
with love and you will have no regrets”

I feel incredibly blessed to have been a small part of this seniors’ journey through high school. Doing senior photos is something I truly love, because I know it marks such a special time in their lives, and these portrait are something they and their parents will look  back on for years to come. This year’s crop of seniors all opted for pretty florals, lots of natural light, and a bit of a bohemian flair, so I was in heaven! I know the Class of 2016 is filled with even more sweet seniors like these, but these lovely young ladies have so much to bring to the world; their kindness, inner beauty, and joy will bring so much to the colleges and careers they have ahead of them. Class of 2016,  I wish you all the very best in your incredibly bright futures!
