Portland December x Garrels Family


December was a month full of travels, mostly road trips on the West coast. But it was also a month of people - so many wonderful people. I did two family photo sessions, which I rarely do because I simply never considered myself a family photographer, but I got asked by a couple of the sweetest families I know if I would document some time with them, and of course, how could I say no.

The Garrels family have one of the most beautiful connections, and I’ve been so honored to have the opportunity to experience some time with them in Portland. Josh is a musician (http://joshgarrels.com/) and Michelle educates their children while working on a million other dreams and projects from photography to women’s clothing (http://www.thenewdomestic.org/). 

Their love for the arts and life and each other reflects in their family, and so enough with my words, and more of the photos that so clearly depict that love.
