Hartman Family Bitty Session/Sherwood, Oregon Portrait Photographer

"Breathe out
So I can breathe you in
Hold you in
And now
I know you've always been
Out of your head
Out of my head I sang"

'Everlong'-Foo Fighters

The first three things that come to mind when I think back to this September session with the Hartman family. #1) it was so great to see the Hartmans again. #2 Foo Fighters. #3 Ava Anderson.

I first met the Hartmans in 2014 when I did their family portraits and I am so thrilled that they chose me again this year. They are a dream to work with. They are cool people. Super cool. At our session this year, I learned that John had gone to the Foo Fighter show just a few days before. I was a wee bit jealous because I had wanted to go but, well, time passes by and I never bought tickets. But anyway, see, they are cool people. Proof right there. 

 At this session is where I first learned of Ava Anderson. Stephanie is a rockin' consultant for Ava Anderson (www.avaandersonnontoxic.com/stephaniehartman) and I had the chance to smell a few items. Instantly, I became in love with the candles. I am sensitive to scents. I get headaches easily and these candles do not give me headaches when many others do. Probably because they  are non-toxic. Ava Anderson has a wide variety of non-toxic products to choose from. Products for your baby, animal babies, your home, body and even your car.

And their kiddos! No, Ava Anderson does not sell Hartman kiddos. That was a bad lead in. =)  I mean that I cannot forget the other two Hartmans! Mr. L and Miss S. were super cooperative and truly happy kiddos. We busted this session out super fast as they were on point! 

Thank you Hartman family for choosing me to capture your family! Go forth and rock on!
