Eugene, Oregon family photographer: Outdoor session at Dorris Ranch


Mason, Amanda, Nolan, and Cora met me at Dorris Ranch on a beautiful evening in late August for a family photography session. Amanda was referred to me by some previous clients of mine on a Eugene Facebook group and I’m so glad she reached out! Her family is absolutely adorable and I loved getting to know them.

If you live in the Eugene/Springfield area you know that we had a very wet September, but the sun was still going strong at the time we held this family photo session. It was a great evening, the perfect temperature, with light pouring through the trees around the ranch. Dorris Ranch is one of my favorite locations for outdoor shoots. The filbert (hazelnut) orchards are always such a pretty spot for pictures, plus there are several rustic-looking fences and buildings that make an ideal backdrop for outdoor portrait photography. I’ve used Dorris Ranch for family, maternity, and even milestone shoots. If you’ve never been there, I highly recommend you check it out!

I always like to get some natural, less posed shots with families during outdoor shoots. I have a patchwork blanket at my Eugene, Oregon photography studio that I usually bring along when I’m doing an outdoor session with young children. It’s perfect for sitting on, or for getting fun pictures like mom and dad holding the blanket stretched out high over the kiddos’ heads.

Outdoor photos are also a lot of fun for kids. Amanda and Mason’s little ones, Nolan and Cora, were the cutest kiddos ever! It was so fun to watch them together. As a family photographer I love to capture sibling interactions, and these two gave me a ton of super cute photo opps. They obviously get along great with each other, and both of them did such a great job for me during this family photography session.

It was such a pleasure to spend the evening with Amanda and her beautiful family! Fingers crossed that I’ll get to work them again—I would love it!
