Family Portraits in the Rose Garden – SW Portland, Oregon

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on September 20th, 2016


I love seeing generations of family come together from far-flung parts of the world to reunite and celebrate the unyielding ties that bind them forever no matter how far apart the paths of life have moved them apart. In the case of Connie & Spencer, a fab Portland couple with an adorable 18-month-old (and an adorable furry baby) whose moms live far away, this summer was a particularly wonderful one, with grandmothers on both sides of the family tree visiting with their mutual offspring and enjoy the summer splendor together with their beloved, bumbling little grandbaby C.


We met up with the reunited clan at NW Portland’s crown jewel of summer beauty, the International Rose Test Garden in Washington Park. With the place bursting in full bloom and the weather beyond ideal, our portrait session was graced with heavenly conditions for the family’s unguarded exuberance to set the tone, as mom and dad had both their mamas and their vivacious little one all together and frolicking in Portland’s floral wonderland at golden hour.
