Family Portrait in the Studio | Portland Family Photographer

I am so excited to share these portraits from my new studio in SE Portland!

The photo on the left is outdoors; we couldn’t resist capturing the spectacular fall colors between rain showers.  The rest of the portraits were done in my studio using 95% natural light with the occasional soft fill from my 580 EX speed light on a stand with an umbrella.  I’m really enjoying my Mini TT1/Flex TT5 Pocket Wizards, so glad I sprung for them (vs. the Plus II’s, which cannot be controlled in-camera).

This little sweetie pie looked dashing in his red baby thermal & denim overalls, so very Portland!  He was accompanied by his doggie, who did “play dead” and a number of other impressive tricks, including capturing the attention of a 4-month-old, which is of course very helpful to me!

I got so many great portraits from this session that it was very hard to select my favorites for editing & presentation–such is the advantage of relaxing in a studio when it is cold & rainy outside rather than struggling to get the shot when everyone is shivering & wet.  Love it!

I have an extra busy weekend coming up with several new shoots as well as a review going up on PDX Kids Calendar from this shoot back in October.  I’m dying to read it!
