I’m sitting here at my desk, trying to be witty and play up the flight, plane, etc…but all I’m coming up with is the tune to Wind Beneath my Wings.  Haha!  Uh, no.  I can’t go there.  This was quite possibly the coolest session EVER.  I blogged the family portion of this family/engagement session HERE last week.  So if you want to read a little more about what this was all about, pop over into that other post and check it out!  I felt quite glamorous on the drive home, truth be told.  Not only was I given a personal tour of our beautiful local peaks, but I had the pleasure of meeting a group of the most wonderful people.  Mike and Kathy are absolutely amazing people.  And their children…wow.  Courteous, patient and so, so loving.  This family made my heart happy 🙂

Without gushing on and on (because occasionally I have the tendency to ramble…OCCASIONALLY. 😉 ) here is a small peek into our session with Mike and Kathy; two of the most fun-loving, happiest, in-love people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.

Alright, I NEVER include personal pics in my sneak peeks, but these were too fun not to share!  Here’s how the session began…with a personal tour of our Washington/Oregon Cascades and the Columbia River Gorge!

You know you’re in for the session of your life when upon your arrival, you’re asked if you want to cruise over Vancouver and check out the local mountains from the AIR…  Um…YES PLEASE!!  Seriously, how cool is that?  It isn’t every day that you get to see five peaks from the AIR!  I can’t say enough about the generosity of this family (and parents!!)  I was asked along to this session by a good friend (and fellow shooter) Sarah of Berrytree photography.  I named this part one because in reality, this is Kathy and Mike’s engagement session, but we began with family photos of this sweet little foursome 🙂  It was everything I love all rolled into one: an amazing aerial view of the Pacific Northwest, a family session (which I hugely adore), an engagement session (can I say adore again in the same sentence?), an adorable family who loved to laugh and all shot with one of my dearest friends.  All-in-all, it was a good day.  A spectacular day, actually 🙂

Just a couple teasers tonight…
