There is a charming house over in NE Portland. In it resides to very happy parents, one sweet little baby girl and a very protective pup. Meet the Gildenmeisters. Brooke & Jason brought their first child into this world on August 2nd… but Jane is not their first family addition, Cooper, the golden retriever has been their baby for years. Cooper was very protective of his new sister, he would not let me get close to her and he often stood between me and his mama. I photographed this family in their awesome home, snuggling on the bed, handing out a lot of kisses and laying in the grass outside with Cooper. They are a picturesque family and I was so happy they asked me to document this special time in their lives. Congratulations Brooke and Jason, you have a precious little girl. …Oh, and try NOT to laugh at the hilarious face she made at the camera (it’s impossible by the way). Enjoy the photos.
