Mega Smile :: Jennifer O’Donnell Photography, Fort Vancouver

This little guy’s grandma brought him to me for a quick mini session.  She wanted to capture his larger that life smile as a gift for his mama.  What a sweet little guy he was!  So funny and well mannered!

Take time to play! Jennifer O’Donnell Photography, Battle Ground, WA Photographer

Their connection as a family is so tangible.  I wanted to just reach out and capture just a bit of it in a jar – that closeness, and strong bond that only a family who spends time laughing, playing and exploring together can truly experience.   Though it’s important to capture those images where everyone is posed and looking at the camera and smiling, it’s so fulfilling to be able to capture these moments of  joy!

Fancy Free :: Jennifer O’Donnell Photography :: Beaverton OR Family Photographer

The M family met me on the Nike Headquarter’s campus in Beaverton, Oregon for some family portraits.  Their little girl was just so spunky and care free and so full of zest!  I loved every second!

Real life is beautiful :: Jennifer O’Donnell Photography :: Battle Ground WA Photographer

When you think back on how your kids were when they were small, you will want to remember how they actually were, not just what they looked like.  You’ll want to remember the crinkle in your daughter’s nose when she was really laughing…you know…that no-sound-coming-out-cannot-catch-your-breath belly laugh.  You’ll want to remember your son’s dimples, or how your kids used to love to tickle fight, and the giggles that would erupt when they did.  It’s all beautiful and worth remembering.

Camden :: Jennifer O’Donnell Photography :: Beaverton Oregon Child Photographer

Wow, it’s been a long time since I have taken the time to blog! I saw Camden and his family back in February, just before Valentine’s Day and we took some portraits of the 6 month old heart breaker.  I just love his impish grin!

Kai :: Jennifer O’Donnell Photography :: Battle Ground, WA Newborn Photographer

This little dude’s parents love Hawaii, and in homage to this affection for the aloha state, the gave their sweet boy and good Hawaiian name.  How lucky am I that I get to photograph his cute face every three months this year?!  Yay!

One! :: Jennifer O’Donnell Photography :: Portland Oregon Child Photographer

Grant turned one!  I will miss getting to see him every three months for his photoshoots.  I have loved every second I got to spend with this little guy and his sweet family!

 

The Rush Family :: Battle Ground, Washington Photographer

Prepare yourself for some electric blue eyes.  Ready?   Are you sure?  Oh wow, is this sweet boy amazingly cute or what?  Yeah, and the whole family shares in the blue eye awesomeness.  I might be a little jealous.

Sisters :: Battle Ground, WA Photographer

These two sisters had me hopping and dancing about in this beautiful field, chasing them around in the beautiful angel wings their mama (a fellow photographer) brought along.  Between giggle fits, I couldn’t get over the sweetness that these two share.  They are so connected, so loving, so polite and so much fun!

Fisher Family :: Jennifer O’Donnell Photography :: Vancouver, WA Photographer

I have had the honor of photographing this family through two new additions to their family!  It is amazingly special to me to be trusted to capture moments of laughter, silliness and love through different phases of a family.  Plus, I get to see how big the kids have gotten, and that is just plain cool to witness!  :)
