Portland Documentary Family Photographer: The Kuhn Family
I’ve pretty much adopted this family – Leslie, Ross and Oliver. I think it’s been a wedding and 6 sessions now, and the most rewarding part of my job is to continue to be the storyteller for someones life. This was my first half-day documentary session with them, telling their story without directing or alteration. A completely raw and honest telling of a summer Sunday afternoon in their lives. Spending so much time with my family lately due to Covid-19 has really made me think more about my documentary family photography work and how important the story of a family really is. We are going to forget so much of the “everyday”, that is part of who we are and what we become. To have a record of that is a gift we can really appreciate through time.
Also, Ross’s store we went into with ice cream – Daylight Vintage, is a vintage clothing *haven* if you’re driving through Silverton, Oregon or you are in the mood for a mini road trip – such good people you’d be supporting <3.
