I love golden outdoor light, but the bottom line living in the Pacific Northwest, we just don't always have the beautiful weather that film loves so much. So embracing the rain and darker light is sometimes in the cards! It was such an honor to photograph the Wecks family on this cold and rainy day in downtown Portland. Bethany and Tim recently adopted their oldest daughter Lily and chose to celebrate her by scheduling some timely and fun family pictures. It has been really special to watch their family grow over the years and particularly fun to get to know Lily even better by photographing her. I love partnering with families for the important moments to create heirloom images.
A tip for parents!! Don't shy away just because of the rain, there is always a way to embrace it and make the photos work!
All images shot in Downtown Portland, Oregon in the Park Blocks on a rainy afternoon. Special congratulations to the Wecks family on the adoption of both of their amazing girls.
