The past couple of weeks at Paul Rich Studio has been incredibly fun and rewarding. It began with Madeleine’s 1 year photo session at Cathedral Park. We had the opportunity to photograph Melody & Mason’s wedding back in 2007 and so it was extra special to reconnect for their daughter’s 1 year portrait session.
The same can be said for Diana & Bryan, who were married in 2010, and who are now expecting their second child and who additionally hired us to document their 2 year old daughter. We will be posting highlights from their maternity/2-year session shortly. Plus, Joan & James, who were married in 2010 on the beautiful island of Oahu, just welcomed their newborn son into the world. We just returned back from their newborn session at their home and are eager to post pictures from that session as well.
And if that isn’t enough, we are also photographing family portraits this weekend on Sauvie Island for Lizzie & Andrew, whose wedding we photographed in 2010. So, needless to say, it has and will be a lot of fun reconnecting with our wedding couples from years past.
Cathedral Park is a wonderful location for portraits and it also happens to be very close to Melody & Mason’s home. So it truly made the perfect location for Madeleine’s 1 year session. Maddy was so excited to explore the park by running around in the grass and climbing all over the place. I find it most natural to have parents simply play and interact with their child to elicit the best responses and facial expressions. Madeleine loved all the silliness that ensued and could not stop smiling.
Here are some of our favorites from Madeleine’s 1 year photo session:
