V Family | Beauty Portraits Portland Oregon

Those of you who have followed my work for even a short time know that family photography isn’t my specialty. Especially when it comes to babies. Hand me a baby and I will look at you like a dear in the headlights. Although, I’ll be getting over that soon since I’m expecting my own “bundle of joy” in April.   But when the V Family asked me if I was interested in doing a glam session that included their baby, that was a lot more up my allie than the typical newborn shoot that involves proping up babies in adorable props and hats. So I accepted and I’m glad I did because the shoot went great and I love the photos.

Here is what Mrs. V said about her experience.  “I loved my photo shoot with Rayleigh!!! I did a family session with my husband and our 8-month-old baby, and I also sneaked in a couple boudoir pictures, which I’m saving as a surprise for my husband for St. Valentine! I was impressed by how precisely Rayleigh and her make-up and hair professional captured the style of the session that I wanted. I wanted a family and baby photo shoot, but more on the glam side. My makeup and hair turned out impeccable, and the pictures are amazing! I got lots of compliments from my friends and family, and lots of them were asking where I found this level of photography! I have a lot of friends outside of America who do professional photography themselves, and they also mentioned very high quality of the photo shoot. I also loved the process! Rayleigh made it all so easy and enjoyable! I felt confident and beautiful, my husband (who is not a big fan of photo shoots to begin with) was very comfortable and relaxed, my baby was calm and happy. I definitely attribute all that to the wonderful atmosphere Rayleigh creates for her shoots. It was an amazing experience!”

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Moms out there. I’m looking forward to a fun weekend with my Mom and Mom-in-law.  Before all the fun, I thought I would share some Mother-Daughter portraits with you guys.

Sisters | Beauty Photography Portland Oregon

Glamour Photography Portland Oregon

One of the most beautiful bonds in the world is the bond between sisters. When I was growing up, my sister and I used to fight constantly. I didn’t want her in my room or touching my stuff. But as an adult I can’t imagine life without my sister. We talk on the phone almost every day and she’s my very best friend. It’s been way too long since my sister and I have done a photo shoot together so we should totally get on that! Sister’s shoots are so much fun and create the most amazing keepsake. They make a great Mother’s Day gift, too.  Ooh, I just gave myself a great idea for a gift for my Mom this spring. Haha!

Mother-Daughter Session | Beauty Photography Portland Oregon

Ms. R contacted me about doing a Mother-daughter session with her Mom, Ms. A. It was so much fun for the two of them to come in together, have their hair and makeup done in my studio, and enjoy a photo shoot. The photos are an amazing souvenir of the great day they had. I know they will cherish these photos and the memory of the time they spent together, for years.

Celebrate Family | Beauty Photography Portland Oregon

Since I’m not too comfortable making funny faces and strange sounds, I opt to not photograph children very often, haha! But every once in a while I do and I really love how these portraits of the Smith family turned out. And I felt proud when I received a Christmas card with their photos and I was happy that the Smith family and all of their loved ones were enjoying their photos.
