Since it’s now June, I thought it only appropriate to blog about our cutting down of the Christmas tree from last November. :) Finally playing catch up on more personal photos now that I’m officially on “maternity leave/baby watch” for the summer.

This Fall we ventured to a different Christmas tree farm than last year, because they were partnering with our church to give all proceeds to families in need within our area/church. Our adventure was had at Kraxberger Farms. They were very friendly and it was a beautiful place. It was hard to decide which tree to cut down, because honestly they were all so uniform and beautiful looking. I let Brian make the final decision and he and Brady sawed it down and hauled it to the truck. I think George had the most fun – he ran around and greeted everyone and had the biggest “smile” on his face the whole time.

It seems we have an annual tradition of Brady playing in a big pile of leaves in our front yard (2014 & 2015). This year I captured him playing in the leaves at a nearby school, because they were so pretty and YELLOW! I love when the seasons change around Portland… there are so many layers and colors.  This was just before his 4th birthday and my mom was in town visiting so, we got some pics of Brady and her together. I even got to jump into a couple pics that my mom took!

Back in August (2016) it was a PERFECT weather day so we dropped what we were doing and headed to the beach for the day. I am SO grateful we live a mere 1.5 hours from the Oregon Coast. What a treasure! We also found our new favorite beach just South of Cannon Beach, called Hug Point.  We recently visited this beach for a super quick sunset “couples” shoot when my step mom was visiting (she took pics of us).  We didn’t get to play much since the sun was quickly setting and the evening fog was rolling in as it got darker so, I made a mental note to head back there next beach trip.

I don’t want to take these days for granted when I can just drop what I’m doing and head to the beach with my sweet little adventure boy, Brady.  Pretty soon he’ll be in elementary school and we won’t have as many “free” days.  We explored beach caves, huge rocks, live things growing on the rocks, crab legs/claws, beach water falls, a couple little hidden oasis right on the beach. It’s incredible. We even tried to blow bubbles, which was a fail because of the wind, but made for some funny pictures. He loves to chase the water and be chased by the water. Too bad it’s pretty cold water… I honestly haven’t gone in past my hips.

Who wants to do a portrait session at this beach?! Email me Hello@LaurenAllenPhotography.com
