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.

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.

I absolutely love having fun during a family shoot. Sometimes i’ll tell siblings to give each other a hug and they’ll look at each other like “no, thats cool” and sometimes I get this. Either way, the reactions i get are alway priceless as is this photo these siblings will have forever.

Happy 1st day of spring. The Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Woodburn, Oregon is such a fun place to get family portraits done in the spring. The fields of tulips are so colorful and make for some beautiful photos & memories.

If you are interested in Family, engagement or maternity photos at the tulip fields contact Jen Gardner Photography. Weekdays are best for this location as the tulip fields get very busy on the weekends.


I love how so many cities have colorful murals which are perfect for family photo shoots. This shoot was in my hometown of Tacoma, Washington which I visit a lot to see family & friends. If you are in the Tacoma area and looking for a family photographer please contact Jen Gardner Photography

Sarah & Robert were planning a bigger wedding in 2016 but as planning started they felt a small intimate wedding with family & a few friends was just what they wanted. All though they didn’t get to use this beautiful spot for their ceremony due to weather we luckily got to use it for portraits. Love when couples risk the cold and rain for some beautiful portraits. Always worth it!

A little bit of chaos at a family shoot is absolutely normal and i actually love when this happens. This photo here isnt really chaotic but there are times where the kids just want to do their thing and run around for a bit. If that happens we just go with it . I love to capture the true personality of your family and ill always make sure to get that one perfect photo that the Grandparents will love.

Southeast Portland offers up some of the best locations for an urban senior shoot in Oregon. I love shooting down on the Eastbank Esplanade or near some of the old colorful warehouse buildings close by and if we want to have a change of scenery we can head over to Mt. Tabor or Laurelhurst Park.

If you are interested in a fun senior shoot please contact Jen Gardner. See more from this shoot on Jen Gardner Photography’s blog.
