For their engagement session, Emily and Orion really just wanted to capture a snippet of what their life is like living in their new home with their pup, Clyde, and exploring their neighborhood in NE Portland. Usually during engagement sessions I find myself out in the woods, in the gorge, or at a river—so this sort of lifestyle engagement session was a little bit different from what I typically do. But it was a lot of fun challenging myself to adapt my style.
Both Emily and Orion are board game fans, so we started off their lifestyle engagement session with some documentary images of them playing a game in their dining room and then transitioned into more cuddly poses throughout the rest of the house. Just down the road, they also have a favorite burrito joint with its facade painted bright orange, and they wanted to somehow incorporate that as well. So we threw on our fall jackets and went for a stroll, stopping at the nearby park for a few images before dining on delicious burritos. — KC
