Celebrating birthdays can be a big deal, especially a milestone birthday like 40. Tatjana got in touch with us and wanted a fun little birthday shoot with her and her family on her birthday to commemorate the day! They were a couple hours away in Portland but we figured we’d love to explore the city of Portland while we were here in the Pacific Northwest and decided to come down into the city to provide her with some fun photos. The initial plan was to meet at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall but when we arrived it appeared to be closed – so we improvised and before they arrived I scouted out the area and found some good locations to utilize.
First we made out way over to the courthouse steps where we wanted to start with just her and the balloons. The balloons were so fun and pretty and on a windy day, quite unruly. After that we brought in the family and grabbed some on the steps there before heading up the street to the next location in front of the Dolores Winningstead Theatre where we were able to get some couples photos as well as family shots.
