Creating fine art children portraits can be challenging when you have a high-energy five-year-old girl. But, Isabel had so much fun during her recent family portrait session, she decided she wanted a fine art portrait session of her own! With the Oregon winter weather upon us, we decided to take Isabel’s portrait session indoors. We used a wide variety of backgrounds, some creativity brought by Isabel;’s mom, and a bit of color theory to create a nice variety of images for Isabel. And while all of the images were designed to bring out Isabel’s personality, we also sought to create some fantastical images that transported Isabel to a land of the imagination.
This family’s idea for winter portraits on Eagle Creek came from 5-year-old Isabel. This past year, Isabelle’s older sister, Samantha, graduated from high school and headed off to College. Not just any college, mind you. Samantha decided to study history — in Dublin, Ireland. So she’s a bit far away. And this left one fiery red-headed, Oregon based child longing for a photograph of her entire family together. When Isabelle asked for a family portrait, the request took her mom by surprise. it made Katie and her husband, Josh, realize that they hadn’t made the time for a family picture since Isabel was born. The four of them live in Sandy, and they wanted something simple and close by. In other words, they needed a plan that would withstand the attention span of an energetic 5-year-old girl.
