Albany 1st Birthday Photographer-9

When Ella’s Mama asked if she could be in a few of Ella’s First Birthday Portraits, my heart soared. Let me tell you why.
1. FACT.  Mom’s are never in enough pictures with their kids. They are usually too busy momming, or hiding their imperfections to be IN the pictures with their kids.
2. What do one-year-olds love more than their parents? NOTHING. Want a happy smile from your child who has just developmentally started to care about strangers vs. familiars? Let them play with their people.
When you think of your most special portraits from your childhood, do they include your loved ones?
This portrait session reminded me how important it is to get in front of the camera. I hope it inspires you too!

urban toddler adventures - toddler in bright orange pants heading down an alley with a motorcycle and traffic cones. this lifestyle children

Lifestyle family photography is all about everyday situations. When toddlers are involved, and you’re walking through the Hawthorne district, that could mean just about anything. I love how his “ride bikes” hoodie and orange pants perfectly match this alley. That’s just how cool real life can be. And my job is to turn it into a story. My job is to make art out of the everyday moments.

Kennedy School Wedding details, including shoes, jewelry, and the dress

Many couples work so hard on all of the details for their wedding. I love taking the time to capture these during the wedding day.  It’s not only for the couples, but they also help bring to life the story of the day for people who couldn’t be there.  Details for brides might include jewelry, garter, and shoes, while grooms may have cuff links. crazy socks, or a special watch.  Not to mention all the details put into decorations, gifts, and more.

Oregon-Coast-Elopement

The Oregon Coast can be the perfect setting for your small wedding or elopement. An Oregon Coast elopement can be intimate, stunningly beautiful, simple and very inexpensive. All you need is an officiant (and I have great local referrals for you), a witness, and your photographer as your second witness, easy peasy! Have friends and family be a part of the ceremony, or choose to go it alone. It’s up to you.

Emily Hall Photography - Wedding Portraits-1 Portland is an incredibly popular destination wedding location. But, every once and awhile, couples opt to borrow Portland Wedding Photographers and whisk them away to other cool wedding destinations. I recently had the opportunity to join this fabulous couple in Park City for their destination wedding. Their wedding day was amazing, complete with a rainbow!

Sometimes people ask if it’s ok if Grandma, Cousin, Aunt, Friend, Dog, etc is in the pictures. Although I understand where it comes from, I am still surprised that I’m being asked. I’m excited that  they’re coming! It’s your playdate, and you want them to be a part of it.

Not every photographer sees things this way. Don’t ask me why not!

My belief? This is your life. Isn’t it beautiful?

I so love taking extended family photos and wish i was able to have photos like this with my Grandparents/siblings/parents growing up. So if my family reads this.. beware, we may be taking family photos soon!  Gathering the whole family for a family shoot definitely can be a bit stressful i’m sure but don’t worry i do my best to make it fun and definitely worth it. No matter what happens at the shoot it’s a memory that will last a lifetime.

It sure doesn’t feel like a year ago that I was photographing this little guy at just a few days old. It is amazing how the times files…..and they will only be this age once.

It has been an honor to work with Levi during his first year, and I look forward to more fun with the rest of his beautiful family soon!

Time really does fly by and your kids will grow up fast. One thing i have noticed is that a lot of families make sure to capture family photos when the kids are little and then all of a sudden they are in high school. Make sure to capture those in between years along the way. It’s definitely a gift your children will appreciate in the long run as will you.

What makes a toddler? Is it the walking? The talking? The tantrums?

I think it’s the beauty of the transition. Toddlers have it all.
