in january , it’s hard to do a photo shoot outdoors when it’s so nice and toasty warm inside. but on those days when i am brave enough and have customers who want outdoor winter sessions, i love to use the tualatin valley nature park in beaverton . i like the grasses and the variety of trees here , plus there are cedar fence posts and train tracks to add interest and i love to use those . this maternity photo session was gorgeous . her pink gown was perfect for some wind blown shots and looked soft against the harshness of the landscape .
