Jax, the boy with the most amazing curly tin drill hair. He's also so smart, polite and full of energy. Mom wants to see about getting his portfolio done and submit them to agencies. I told her to look no further, we can plan a play date and I'll just capture his spirit and fun personality.
It was nice to get a break from the rain lately here in Portland Oregon so we made a trip out and got these spunky yet sweet shots!

This is one of those situations where I would pay the parents to just let me play with their babies, haha! Who doesn't want to see twin babies on their first birthday doing after cake? No one.
Of course, dressing them up is part of the fun too but more so that that- their life will forever be connected to each other. They need to have as many memories to look back on as possible.
Because, they went through about 500 face expressions all within the hour!

Going back to my roots. I've dedicated a tremendous amount of years to fashion and editorial commercial photography in the past.
Being on set with models, editors, wardrobe stylist, makeup and lighting crew is something I left behind and I do miss from time to time.
I'm going to focus on bringing some of that back for my studio maternity photo shoots. Yes, I do everything myself now but my heart belongs to editorial. I love everything refined and artsy about a beautiful Mum-to-be.

It was not an email I ever wanted to receive. Mum booked for her newborn session few months ahead and now at 9:14pm warning me that her baby might not make it. She was already in her third trimester.
What I couldn't do is offer comfort, but I did brace for the worse and just simply told her not to worry about her arrangements with me.
Of course, the story took for a better turn because you are now viewing his gallery. The tests didn't pick up any signs of down syndrome and it wasn't until birth that it was discovered. After a traumatic delivery on both Mum and baby.
All I know is- he was easily one of the sweetest babies I've ever held. He is so cherished and loved by his brothers. I didn't learn more about his journey until at the end of the session.
Every day I'm reminded of the reasons why I photograph birth! He deserves to be celebrated for his fight as he will go through a heart surgery in upcoming months.
Delicious and definitely cuddle worthy. I seriously respect the hand craftsmanship on these bindings to be honest. The linen material is rich and the leather is smooth to the touch.
These thick lay flat pages allows me to design and showcase images to it's full potential and without wrinkling edges. I want to keep each and every one that's left the studio and they aren't even of my family!
The time it took to create these album galleries has been redeemed by it's matching quality.

Yes, it's the most sought after season for photo shoots. I want to share with you the gorgeous tones and the plaid attire. I think the PNW has the most variety to offer in terms of scenery and believe it when I say- everyone needs these for Christmas cards!
This family split their session with a cake smash and it was so sweet because their older fur sister got to join as well! I say family photo shoots don't have to be a chore, I just want everyone to have fun! And, I made a special little tent just to fit his "forest" theme =)

Mom; Fallon told me at out consultation about how she envisioned her photo session. This helps both of us get on the same page and make sure I deliver the best of my abilities to your wishes.
Her home in Washougal, Washington is very monochromatic and she wanted to make sure the wall art not only would match the home decor, but also not limiting to whether if and when they move.
A very minimalistic and clean approach to a tasteful- chic, newborn photo session.
She was giving me super Russian-doll vibes! Especially in being able to fulfill this bohemian inspired of a set-up. As you can see, she's a fan of keeping her eyes on me but I am not complaining at all, haha! Rarely do I ever get open-eyed but not crying babies so I will take it any day.
Mom received a gift certificate from her sister and I thought that was truly sweet. She wanted to make sure her niece had the best photographer in Portland. And, she was not wrong.
This sure was the best gift any family or friends can gift for a loved one wouldn't you say?
Spring and summer went quick for us at SunnyMelon Photography. I love when parents request and the weather allows for me to do outdoor photography sessions in Portland, Oregon. Outdoor newborn sessions are by far my favorite sessions for newborns. Having brand new life surrounded by the beauty of nature is truly inspiring. Although outdoor newborn portrait sessions have become more popular and wanting something "unique and different", the majority of parents still choose to do studio newborn sessions. If you love having something unique and want portraits that will be different from the newborn photos your friends and family took with their infant, this might be perfect for you! Are you expecting a spring or summer baby? We will be offering these session types again in 2020. If you are interested in learning more about photography services available, contact me for more information.
It's about once a year that I would get twin same gender babies in. And lately, it's been more and more. Something in the water I say. I'm always excited and overly eager to use my matching bonnets, headbands and all the props to commemorate this fleeting time.
I don't know about you, but I quite thought I was a genius with the heart shaped wrapping. See for yourself below =P
