….: Carson + Fiona :…. Portland, Oregon kids photographer

I truly <3 this family 🙂

Between newborn photos, family photos, helping them with web design and watching their teeny tiny newborn Fiona grow into this adorable little KID…They are one of those families I look forward to seeing every time I see their name on my calender.  I could wear sweats to a session and I don’t think they’d judge me…One of those clients 🙂

My good friend Stacy (proud owner of cutestbabyontheplanet Breckan a few posts down) had this antique gumball machine in the corner of her living room…She said something to me about it a week or two ago and I took the colors and feel it gave me and ran with it 🙂  I made Fiona’s little dress the morning of our shoot and I have to say she wore it quite well!

I so appreciate when my clients trust me enough to let me execute my little *visions*. It’s probably a bit unnerving when you see your photographer pull all these random junk shop finds out of the car and pile them into a field.  But the great thing about “theme-y” type stuff with kids is it gives them an environment to interact in. I mean how many expressions can you expect to get from a kid when you sit them on the ground and tell them to smile?  I much prefer to do it this way 😉
