We feel so lucky to see life evolve with the couples we get to know. From adventurous lifestyle excursions, weddings, maternity photos, and more our passion is to tell stories. Becoming “life photographers” is the best. This past week we were invited by Lisa and Jarred to the Oregon Coast to celebrate their pregnancy by taking their maternity photos. It was so fun to continue photographing their lives after photographing their wedding at Silcox Hut above Timberline Lodge on Mt Hood back in 2014. During their fun weekend getaway with their adorable Airstream trailer, we ventured to Oswald West State Park on Short Sands Beach to witness a gorgeous Oregon Coast sunset. This is definitely some of Oregon’s best nature with open beach spaces, calm waves, and colorful skies. This is one of our absolute favorite spots where the forest meets the ocean. Large cliffs with tall trees reach out over an open canvas of sky and open beach as you arrive off the trail where many local surfers walk. Waterfalls, beautiful soft light, rich green moss, endless reflections, and silhouettes were the perfect backdrop. Lisa and Jarred enjoyed how Short Sands beach is protected from wind and keeps tourists at a minimum from the hike. This was such a beautiful day and we all kept “social distanced” too, safe from spreading COVID-19. We will be displaying these photos at their baby shower party this coming week in Portland in large prints, framed. Everyone is very excited.
