Shari and Justin are good friends of mine from law school. (Yep, you heard that right. I’m a recovering lawyer — they say acceptance is the first step toward recovery, right?).
The venue was a family cookout on a large farmstead that Shari and Justin own in Beavercreek Oregon. We were joined by Shari’s grown kids (who were leaving for college that evening) and some extended family — who weren’t supposed to be part of the portrait session, but we were all having so much fun we couldn’t resist dragging them in!
Not unlike a lot of farms in Oregon. the setting is beautiful. But this place is unique and comes complete with a small pond (bull frogs and all), a wooden dock, and Justin’s trusty old-school tractor! Along with some farm tools that Justin described as “weapons of destruction,” that tractor of course found its way into several of the images!
