If you are looking for a perfect time of year to have family portraits taken in the Pacific Northwest, I suggest the Fall season. Especially if you like the brilliant fall colors. Seattle, Portland, and the Central Oregon Bend area offer incredible colors during the fall season. It is also a great time of year because you can utilize some of your photos for holiday cards. And lastly… the fall leaves make for great candid moments for the children and will give the children something to be preoccupied with so they have fun during the picture taking process. Also, if you are starting new families, it is great to have maternity, newborn photos within the first 10 days, 6-month photos and 1-year photos. There is so much development between those stages to capture the growth. After the child’s first year, I recommend 1 time each year thereafter.
This particular family chose Greenlake in Seattle, WA for their family portrait session. I had the lucky honor of capturing their baby’s newborn photos in Portland, Oregon. So I was excited to capture their baby’s 6-month milestone in their “new” neck of the woods, the gorgeous emerald city!!
