Tilllamook Oregon portraits, Air Museum photography

These boys are so animated that I could hardly help myself from giggling constantly.  Their mom, a good friend of mine, wanted some Air Museum portraits for her boys.  I think the setting was very fitting and brought out their personalities perfectly.  Don’t you love the little bomber jackets?  We had a ton of fun […]

Here is a sneak peak at my newbie.  He is so tiny and my other baby seems so big now!  This little guy is a lot of fun.  Unfortunately though, his face sprung a very bad case of acne right before picture day.  But, with a little photoshop help, you can see his real face […]
