Russell Family - Salem, Oregon Family and Pet Photographer

Hi, everyone!

Oh how I just adore the family I'm blogging about today. I’m lucky enough that the Russell family has chosen me to photograph their last three sessions over the last year, including their pups in each of them. I truly can't believe how much their fur babies have grown and changed since I first met them.

Luna and Leena were both adopted from rescue agencies, and Ashley and Lee have huge hearts to take on the rehabilitation and training that has been needed! Luna has been part of the Russell family for just over a year now and her demeanor is completely different than when we met. She is very patient and very well behaved. Leena has opened up a lot since I first met her in July, and I can see their hard work paying off already with her training.

And, it goes without saying, Ashley and Lee have become my friends over the time we've worked together. It's hard to not become friends with someone like Ashley, a strong and beautiful woman with a deep heart. Dad and husband Lee is just as great. Every time I hang out with him, he makes me laugh.

When Ashley contacted me to take their photos again, I immediately began counting down the days to our session!

And as for the day of the shoot, I had so much fun! They had a pretty great time, too. “Thanks again!!! You are the best!” says Ashley.

Okay, enough text. Check out the amazing Russell family!
