Jeanette – Six Months – Portland Photographer

Meet little Miss Jeanette, or Netty – the cutest little nickname ever.  Netty came to see me with her family…mom, dad and her two big brothers, who happen to have 4 paws.  I love when families bring their dogs into the studio for a family portrait session!  She was all smiles, and like my middle daughter, the happier she was, the wider her mouth was.  HA!  Such joy.  Netty was an absolute pleasure to photograph.  Are you looking for a Portland photographer for your baby or family sessions?  I would be happy to meet with you for a pre-consultation, so give me a call or send me an email.  But enough about that…let’s enjoy some really big smiles!

If you have a pet that you would like to join in for family portraits, please do not hesitate to ask.  I can’t promise to make them smile, but I’ll do my best!  The hardest part is getting them to sit still…but once we get that, getting them to look is no trouble.  And look at little Netty here with her boys!  So precious…an wonderful memory!

odessa and imogen – Family Portraits

Family Photography Portland

And another wonderful family that has been coming to me for family portraits for years!  In fact, this family is one of two families that have been coming to Barefoot Photography since I got my start in my backyard studio…so many years!  Thank you, thank you for trusting these sweet memories to me.  It’s an honor!

“We are blessed to have Kimberly take our family’s pictures!  We are always comfortable and she is so great with the kids — from newborn to older.  Kimberly took my maternity pics too and I am so happy to have those memories.  We couldn’t love a photographer more.  Plus, she is just an awesome person :)”

I need to do some digging so I can show you a “watch me grow” post for these girls.  This session was easily one of my favorites to date.  Odessa is quickly becoming a young lady…entering that tween stage.  And little Imogen has so much energy and vitality!  I love capturing their unique personalities.  And these photos are not staged…I didn’t have to bribe them.  This is who they are, they hug, they hold hands…they snuggle.  I would just give them an idea…”Can you touch noses?” And then oh, the giggles.  Sweet moments!

Portland Family PhotographerThis family is drawn to black and white portraits, as am I.  But the pop of color on the blue trunk is so beautiful!  I love the simplicity of their white dresses against the grey backdrop, with that splash of color.  Children's Portraits PortlandChildren's Portraits PortlandSuch a fabulous family…a joy to photograph!  Our sessions have always been filled with laughter.Portland Family PhotographerThis portrait of the sisters is my favorite from their photo shoot.  I simply told them to stand here together.  I turned and this is what I saw.  SO precious!  What a beautiful moment…  I just adore the way Imogen is holding onto big sister Odessa’s arm.  Perfection…Family Photography PortlandChildren's Portraits PortlandFamily Portraits Portland AreaKeep smiling girls…you’re beautiful inside and out!

maddy and aaron – Family Photographer

One of the best parts of being a family photographer is watching these little ones grow up throughout the years.   It is amazing how much little ones change in just one year!  Maddy and Aaron first came to see me when Aaron was still in the womb!  Here are a few from Aaron’s newborn appointment.  So precious and tiny!

And here they are more recently.  Maddy is still the attentive, sweet big sister.  Aaron wasn’t too sure about the lady with the camera at first, but he warmed up and gave us that fabulous smile!  Capturing a successful sibling portrait isn’t always easy.  Typically, you’ve got one kid ready to go and looking adorable, and by the time you capture the second kiddo…kid #1 has gotten bored and wondered off.  HA!  But thankfully…Miss Maddy is a pro and she was ever so helpful as we captured Aaron for their sibling portraits.

While doing a family session, or a sibling session, I always capture some individual portraits of each child.  These tend to really bring out their uniqueness and personality.  I think as children grow older, it’s particularly important to photograph them.  So many things change when they hit that “tween” session.

Just look at these smiles!  I love it when we work hard and get past that uncertain stage where a child is nervous and unsure about me and my camera.  These type of genuine smiles make all of that work so worth it!
