COZY FALL FAMILY PORTRAITS | Vancouver, Washington


Fall is such a nostalgic time for me...especially since a few of my favorite TV shows and movies are coming back in full force like Gilmore GirlsAnne of Green Gables and the new Beauty and the Beast trailer just aired too! That is putting me into full-blown nostalgia overdrive.

While these feelings are mostly joyous, nostalgia can bring it's melancholy too. Do you ever wonder how you got to where you are...both the good and the bad? Do you ever miss moments in your life that have come and gone...or have had to let go of dreams that you simply can't focus on right now? I have. I do.

For some reason, fall always brings up this mixed up bunch of feelings and bombards me with them. Those very feelings have a way of informing my work and I'm always most pleased with the photos I take in this cozy time of year. This family session was no exception with it's cozy scenery and warm layers...these moments were the perfect way to wrap my 2016 family portrait season.

Special thanks to the Moore Family for being awesome even when the rains came. And to little Landon for having the best suspender sweater set ever.

Enjoy the rest of your nostalgic fall everyone - it's a magic time of year!
