I was so excited when Jenn asked me to create these Hope Valley family portraits for her! I have known her since my very early photography days through mutual friends and it was amazing to see how her family has grown over the years.
It’s always my greatest joy to see families evolve and capture precious moments in time that fly by. These will be priceless portraits, especially when these kiddos are older <3
Also, let me tell you how much I love Hope Valley. It’s one of the most gorgeous areas during fall. It’s been a few years since I have taken pictures here. So, I was thrilled to be there! And this family did an amazing job at choosing wardrobe to compliment the beautiful landscape.
Our shoot happened to be during a cold snap, but they absolutely rocked the cold weather (and wind). Ugh – the wind! It’s hard to escape around here – but honestly it brings that “real life” feel to portraits with hair swirling around and I love that about it.
Hope Valley Family Portraits
You’ll see that Berkley is basically a perfect child model with her amazing smiles and poses. She was a joy to photograph – truly. And you’ll also see that little baby bear Bruin REALLY liked being thrown in the air. He also really loves his teething ring!
Jenn and Kyle also introduced me to a VERY cool spot in Hope Valley. Those portraits are at the end of this post, with the river running through. I will definitely come back to that spot – you can bet on it!
These Hope Valley family portraits bring me so much joy, and I hope they invoke the same feelings for you, too. If you’re in need of fall family portraits, please use my contact form to inquire about a fall Hope Valley session!
