The Blyth Family :: Bend, OR

Smith Rock - Redmond, OR

Choosing a favorite photo from the hundreds that were taken of this gorgeous family would be like asking which of these two beautiful babies I love more. Shooting photos of these four honestly make me feel - giddy, anxious, nervous (I oftentimes lose sleep before shoots with millions of thoughts running through my mind), excited, etc, etc, etc...because I know that no matter what I do, the photos are going to be beautiful - doesn't take a lot of work on my part....

When I first got into photography, I used Ava as my model - I'd think of poses, outfits, scenes and just go with it - today, I don't think she loves when I come around with my big camera, but I know that one-day she'll appreciate these photos and be content with all of the grueling hours that I chased her around with the lens in her face.

Please meet { for the second or third time }, some of my most favorite people in the world - Galen, Meghan, Ava and Miles...Enjoy.

Many thanks go to Galen for being such a trooper. I've promised him the next time I come to town, I won't request his participation...we'll see how long this truth holds up with Meghan.
