When Jamie first contacted me about a family portrait session while they vacationed at Brasada Ranch from Atlanta, she warned me. Her girls were very, very busy. She has had professional photographs taken in the pst, but she never had enough good ones to choose from. Jamie and her husband lived in Oregon nearly six years ago. The state held so many special memories for them, and they wanted their daughters to experience the beauty and the magic of Oregon in the summer. And she wanted to remember it with photographs.
I gladly accepted her challenge, and showed up to shoot their session at the quintessential stream beneath Brasada’s iconic trellis on a beautiful Central Oregon morning. Together, we ran around. We played Simon Says. And ring around the rosie. And the girls giggled and played. Jamie stopped me halfway through and said “this is already a thousand times better than it ever has been in the past!” I’ll take that compliment. Because to me, it definitely didn’t feel like work.
