I loved this Portland Company Complex family session with Heidi, her boyfriend Dane, and her 7-year-old son, Jaxon! The area around the Portland Company Complex is one of my favorites in Portland because it just has an awesome mix of settings in such a small space. I am a sucker for any more urban, industrial settings — gimme that brick, those metal garage doors, that peeling paint, those hints of graffiti! But you’re also just a stone’s throw from a gorgeous ocean view as well as part of the Eastern Promenade Trail, which has lots of nature and trees, too.
We took these photos on a chilly day, but Jaxon kept us all laughing hard enough to keep warm. 😉 He was so NOT your typical 7-year-old in front of the camera. He loved making funny faces and goofing around, doing some parkour on the structures, climbing trees, and just being his charming self! We also got the most perfect, golden light — what more can you ask for?
