Portland In Home Engagement Session

This Portland in home engagement session was so much fun. There’s a ton of things to do and places to see in Portland for engagement photos but we wanted to do something low key and casual. So I met Hillary and Allen at their home a few weeks ago to do a super laid back in home engagement session with their dogs. First of all let me just say, this session had all the puppy breath! When I wasn’t photographing I was on the ground playing with the doggos. We started off trying to do some “posed” photos on the couch with the dogs. You can imagine how that one turned out. We did manage to get a few photos with the dogs sitting still which I was thrilled about, but most it’s them jumping all over the couch and each other. After seeing how much the dogs wanted to play I figured it was a good idea to head to the backyard and let them run around so I could just get a few puppy portraits(if you have a dog I will gladly throw in a few puppy solo shots to hang on your wall for free…because dogs are awesome). Hillary and Allen have a huge backyard so the dogs were giving it a really good go around. I had Hillary and Allen sit in the hammock to get some cozy backyard hanging photos but almost immediately the dogs were jumping on them and hilarity ensued. We photographed just them and the dogs relaxing on the hammock with the outdoor speakers playing some classic rock while the sun set. It was as perfect and relaxed as an in home engagement session gets. We finished up with some photos of those two just snuggling on the bed together. I love sessions like these where it’s just easy. I’d be lying if I didn’t say the dogs made my job easy that day. Hope y’all enjoy this one!
