Funny that I should be posting a snowy winter session just as it's finally starting to warm up here ;)
I first met Michael and Joella last September when I signed up to train for the Happy Girls Half Marathon through Fleet Feet of Bend. Michael and Joella were my coaches!
Joella reached out to me about needing some professional photos for an upcoming marriage and family therapy conference she and Michael were speaking at. Michael and Joella are marriage and family therapists at Cascadia Institute located in NWX here in Bend (www.cascadiafamilytherapy.com).
After a few setbacks no thanks to the weather, scheduling conflicts and life getting in the way, we finally set a date. Turns out, the date we decided on was the same day a huge winter storm was set to roll in. I was expecting disappointment and having to re-schedule our session (again), but instead, Michael and Joella were game and excited for their snowy winter session-a score for me because I'm always up for a bit of an adventure!
We drove up to Mt. Bachelor with Michael and Joella's dog, Abbey, in tow to find the weather cold but so beautiful! We had a pretty impressive snow season here in Oregon and there was no shortage of the fluffy white stuff. We finished our time together with some fun couple(y) photos and of course, we had to include Abbey. You'd have no idea Abbey is an older dog judging by her bounding around in the snow-she looked like a puppy!
During our last communication a few days ago Joella shared with me that "Michael just said “Its time to schedule our summer session”'. It makes me so happy to hear that clients had a good time at their session and love their images!
