I love repeat clients. This family has trusted me to document much of their lives in the past year and still has a couple more shoots reserved across the next few months.  I’ve been photographing Kiki’s sister in law’s family since last year. Right now we’re in the middle of her “First Year Collection” for her second child.  What a honor to continue to photograph more folks in her family!  Kiki and her fiancé are getting married in Mexico at the end of the year. Her friends hosted an incredibly beautiful (Pinterest worthy) colorful Frida Kahlo themed bridal shower at Elephant’s Deli in NW Portland. Who knew their party room has a retractable sunroof! It was a beautiful day mixed with overcast and bits of sunshine. Here are some of my favorites from the beautiful Mexican themed bridal shower!

Here’s the final of a 3 part blog series for the Day in the Life Storytelling Session for the Terry Family… You can check out Part 1 HERE (fusion videos & still images) and Part 2 HERE (still images).

This part of the blog series chronicles once dad returned home from work (we shot on a weekday) and they enjoyed some fun time with the industrial bubble machine + Taylor Swift, a taco dinner, a walk to the neighborhood gelato place, and bath/bedtime routines. It’s so insightful for me to document these special moments for other families. I always learn so much from them and count it a blessing to witness the love they share in these intimate fleeting moments. 136-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 137-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 138-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 139-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 140-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 141-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 142-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 143-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 144-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 145-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 146-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 147-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 148-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 149-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 150-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 151-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 152-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 153-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 154-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 155-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 156-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 157-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 158-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 159-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 160-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 161-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 162-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 163-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 164-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 165-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 166-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 167-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 168-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 169-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 170-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 171-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 172-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 173-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 174-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 175-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 176-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 177-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 178-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 179-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 180-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 181-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 182-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 183-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 184-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 185-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 186-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 187-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 188-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 189-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 190-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 191-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 192-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 193-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_Storyboard 194-_2016_05_Terry_DayinLife_StoryboardTHEY MADE IT TO THE END OF THE DAY!

I can’t say enough great things about the day I was blessed to spend with the Terry family documenting their DAY IN THE LIFE.  The timing worked out well too, since I was already in Texas (Houston) for a friend’s wedding and some other shoots so I extended my trip and booked it up to Dallas for a quick 2 day trip to photograph this sweet family.  She was referred to me by some folks in Dallas so I didn’t know this family going into it, though I wonder how we weren’t friends when we lived in Dallas?! We have so much in common it’s crazy. From the moment we spoke on the phone for her pre-session consultation I knew we’d have a blast working together.  Stephanie was great about not “faking” their day in the life… she simply made a list of activities she and the kids do in a typical day and that’s just what they did. We shot on a weekday while her husband was at work so he’s in the evening shots (stay tuned…)

It was a pleasure to document their DAY IN THE LIFE over 12 hours. These sessions are so intriguing to me, because I learn from other families and see how they operate in a typical day.  You REALLY get to know a family in these intimate settings.  You learn every little quirk about the kids and you can see the parents starting to fade towards the end of the day. You get to see grace afforded and discipline given.  THESE are the things that I find great joy in as a photographer. I strive to build deep relationships with my clients and these sessions really allow me to document what we think of as the nitty gritty that’s actually the beauty.  It’s LIFE and it’s BEAUTIFUL.

My goal is to serve a family like I’d want to be served and photograph them and their kiddos they way I’d want someone to document our day. I want to get EVERY little moment that I can… even things like kids washing their hands, sharing food between each other, and meltdowns are something that will be special to reflect upon in years to come.  I like to capture little voices, laughter, temporary speech impediments, and the sound of small feet running on video. I capture the calm and the chaos. Life can be a big blur sometimes so, it’s a gift when families commission me to photograph their raw/real selves and provide tangible prints/albums (in addition to the fusion video) to be cherished for generations.  I hope I’m blessed to document another day in their life in another stage of their lives.
