The 2021 Yearbook: Portland Family Photographer
It’s a new year and I’m once again behind on my “yearbooks”, but as a mama of 2 and business owner I’m sure you can understand there is stuff that’s ok to put on the back-burner– even if you’re excited to put it out into the world. In my yearbooks I tend to forego the more typically “perfect” images, and instead just want to record the images from the year that make me *feel* all the things. I’m not necessarily trying to collect reminders of the images that reflect what makes me a good photographer, but maybe what makes me different. While I also took plenty of other beautiful photos with lots of color, more typical poses, and so many happy smiles too, that’s just not what I was looking for here. Sometimes the “art” is in the more imperfect and unexpected moments. And I guess for me, that also means a lot of black and white photos that are more natural instead of posed.
Putting together this post also reminds me of all the people that I really enjoyed spending time with, photographing their growing families, and how I really want to keep going doing this work, documenting life as it changes, for as long as I can. <3
I wish I could cram every family I loved working with into this post, but with about 133 sessions in 2021 I wasn’t able to include everyone.
