Six degrees of separation…I always think of that when I think of the Heron Family. I first met Kirsten Heron and her family when I moved to Bend seven years ago. She lived directly across the street from my cousin, so I would see them at functions at my cousins house. Then I started attending the same church and I remember the first time they brought Jake to church. Still friendly but not quite friends. We spent many years going to the same parties, events and church but never really spent a lot of time together until about three years ago when we were in a small with each other. Then we went from being friendly to being friends…and what a lucky jump that was for us. The Heron’s are very kind and fun loving people. They would be there in an instant if you needed either of them. They have to adorable and lively kiddos and a new addition of a very well behaved yellow labrador.
Kirsten had contacted me about doing some photos for their family and I was so excited that she did. Our day was a beautiful fall afternoon in Shevlin Park. We had so much fun trying new things and walking in great outdoors getting some fabulous photos. Kirsten was worried that the Jake and Ellie might not be up for the task but they ended up being the fantastic, by the end they were posing with their own looks and style and begin for me to take more. It was such a pleasure to spend time with this incredible family and enjoy watching all the fun personalities come out. Jake and Ellie were absolutely fabulous to photograph and I even think they had some fun. David and Kirsten as always were game for anything and did it with so much ease and pose. I feel so blessed to be in a business where I am able to not only do what I love but to be able to spend time with my friends capturing the memories and love between them. This will be a day I will not forget, not only for he beautiful weather and colors but for the fun and friendship!
