I grew up in a family of six, so large families have a special place in my heart. And like this family, I was the only girl. AND I too had a black and white dog!
I met Katie at the UNITED photography conference last year in Santa Barbara and immediately liked her. Then I got to meet her family this summer. Such fun kids, each with their unique personalities, spanning from 8 years to 15 years old. I don’t know how these parents do it, but they sure are doing something right!
Katie is a great photographer based in Portland, Oregon, so you can imagine how flattered I was when Katie contacted me to photograph her family. If you are in Portland, make sure to check her out, especially her work with high school seniors.
I love kids’ reactions when parents hug or kiss.
Stella is definitely the family dog, proudly watching over her peeps.
I guess with four kids you don’t get much alone time. 😉
Who needs to buy toys when you can use sticks and kelp for outdoor play?
