There are plenty of beautiful location options for Bend Oregon Family Portraits. Take your pick of parks, lakes, river trails, or badlands. Smith Rock State Park or iconic Mirror Pond. Each will provide stunning backdrops for your family photos. And they will even offer room for your kids to run around and get some energy out during the session. But sometimes the best place for photos is right in your own back yard. As the old saying goes: home is where the heart is. Why not take pictures at the place where you invest most of your time? Whether it’s in the front yard with your house in the background or the back yard you’ve put so much work into making beautiful. Both are sure to make your family photos unique and special.
An Afternoon at Home
I met this sweet family for some relaxed Bend Oregon Family Portraits at home in their front yard. It was a day full of the summertime buzz that Central Oregon boasts. The sun was shining. The juniper was fragrant. We laid out a blanket in their front yard. Then Mom and Dad snuggled their little babe just like they did every day. I just happened to be there to photograph it.
The thing that I love most about these at home sessions is that families tend to move. And having your home in the background of your photos provide a sentimental memento to that house you lived in at that time. Looking back at the photos years from now will inevitably bring back a flood of memories. And that, sweet friends, is why I do what I do. Because these moments flash by in a blink. But family portraits make those blinks last forever.
