This family is made up of some of the best humans I've had the honor of meeting.

Ariel and I connected in 2016 through adoption and being white mamas raising boys of color. Our first time spent together was at the Portland Zoo. She had a membership and invited me and my two tiny infants to join her and her 1.5 year son, Owen.

Her husband Nathaniel is the same: kind, patient, amazing. The two of them make the best parenting team to their sweetest son, Owen.

It was such an honor when they invited me to document their family. Such a blessing to be their photographer.
