Is there any place in Oregon more photographically iconic than the Oregon Coast? It’s a perfect mix of the familiar and the unexpected, always subject fun to meet up with clients on the coast when they’ve booked a session for fun, fresh family portraits. You know that special something only the beach brings out in all of us? Exactly. Just look how much fun Melissa and her pair of precocious preteens had splashing around together in the surf!
A rendezvous in Lincoln City is always a roll of the dice, weather-wise, so we made the merry most of the drizzly day at the beach. Melissa Young has been a realtor in Portland for 14 years, working step by step with families looking for the home that’s just right for their needs and budget. Melissa’s passionate, maternal personality really shines through in everything she does, from being the fairy godmother of real estate to palling around with her awesome kiddos on the crazy-cool beach spots we found.
The varied terrain made for plenty of adventurous activity, from wading to their ankles in a little river outlet or checking out the rad driftwood hut left behind for all to enjoy by some handy beach bums past. Such a fun time exploring the secret bounty of Lincoln City’s beach with this treasure of a family; rain could never ever ever dampen their shared sense of wonder and the spirit of adventure the kids really brought along to the seashore, giving our portrait session so much to play with.
