A Portland Family Session

For those of you who know me, you know that I'm a happy crier.  But I haven't always been.  Motherhood made me that way.  I cry during most movies (Yeah, I pretty much sobbed through most of Sing....I know, I know.). I cry at every wedding, no matter what.  I cry every time an iPhone newborn pic pops up in my feed.  I cry on my kids' first day of school and the last.  And I cry during literally every Subaru commercial (I mean, c'mon with that little boy planting a tree with his dad).    

So when I delivered this gallery to this beautiful, amazing family, and they wrote me the loveliest thank you ever....well, you bet your ass I cried.  Because that's how much it means to me.  Because that's how lucky I feel that I get to do this for a living.  Because photographing families is my heart.  And because I know how much it means to preserve these years, when the babes are still little.  

I'd love it if you'd hit play on this song while to view their images. It just fits.
