An Expecting Family Session at Champoeg Park

December 13, 2023

In the heart of the picturesque Champoeg Park, love and laughter echoed through the rustling leaves and along the winding paths. This photo session with these two sweet people contained a joy that was contagious. Their sweet dog, Boone, also added an extra layer of fun!

Champoeg State Park, nestled along the banks of the Willamette River, provided the perfect backdrop! It was a session filled with love, laughter, and canine companionship. Towering oak trees and early fall meadows formed a natural canvas for capturing the essence of this fun-loving trio.

These two radiated happiness from the moment they stepped into the park. Their infectious smiles and playful banter set the tone for a session filled with genuine moments and candid expressions. Dressed in casual yet stylish outfits, they were ready to explore the park and create memories! A fun bonus, I learned they just found out they were expecting!

Boone Stole the Show

No love story is complete without a four-legged friend, and in this case, it was the lovable Boone, or Boonie as they called him. Boone’s enthusiasm added a touch of spontaneity to the shoot. He playfully sniffed around the fields and basked in the attention his parents showered on him. He was so well behaved and so snuggly! I just wanted to take him home!

As the camera clicked away, Lizzy and her loving husband effortlessly showcased their genuine connection. Whether stealing a kiss under the canopy of oak trees or sharing a playful moment with Boone, their laughter echoed through the park. They, along with Boone, had not only created a series of beautiful images but created memories that would forever be cherished. The photographs captured the essence of their love, the beauty of Champoeg Park, and the joy that radiated from this delightful trio.
