Photographing Quinn, Sela, and their beautiful dog Bruno has become an annual event that I look forward to every year! There’s nothing more fun than photographing this family near their Mount Hood area cabin in the fall!

We took full advantage of one of those rare sun-filled fall days in Oregon.  The sun was out. the sky was clear and blue.  The trees were golden yellow. And the Sandy River rushed past us as a snow covered Mount Hood stood over us in the distance.

Last year we spent all of our time around their cabin just outside of Rhododendron, Oregon. This year, the two sisters and I (along with Mom and Grandma) opted for some adventure!  We traveled to a secret location hidden in the Mount Hood National Forest, just off an old Forest Road along the banks of the Sandy River.

There we found a ledge overlooking the river with beautiful views of the Mountain too!  It was the quintessential Oregon location, and the perfect place to capture a great set of family pictures!
