Love is strange And sometimes kinda gross It's embarrassingly gassy And it leaves its dirty underwear In piles around the place 💕 Love is rude It has a sort of smell And it thinks that you don't notice And it blurts out things that make you wanna smack it's stupid face 💕 And it's awkward and confusing It annoys you half to death Then it grins that dopey grin And you can't catch your breath 💕 Love is strange and sometimes sort of smug And it's really really bossy And it messes with your head Till you're a hopeless basket-case 💕 And it's stubborn It's insulting It's obnoxious It's the worst You keep pushing it away And you fall in headfirst 💕 Love is strange And often pretty fun It looks different without makeup And it's nothing like the fairy tales You grow up dreaming of 💕 Love is weird Love is dumb Love is strange But that's what makes it Love 💕
This daddy-son duo is the sweetest!! Not to mention that little tummy slice hanging out. I die. 😍 Wish it was a look I could pull off. 😂 . . . . . . . #pdxfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #portlandphotographer #sherwoodphotographer #sherwoodfamilyphotographer #amandaevansphoto
As a kid, didn’t you think the line “and Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again” in the song ‘Its Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas’ felt a little harsh? A couple of decades later, not so much!!! 🎉🎉🎉 Cheers to the school routine and regular nap times again. . . . . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #sherwoodphotographer #sherwoodfamilyphotographer #familyphotographer
Local friends - name that location! The blue benches and lamp posts are a dead giveaway... . . . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #sherwoodphotographer #sherwoodfamilyphotographer #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer
Hope you all had a great holiday with family and friends! Typically, I post my own family’s Christmas card photo here around Christmas, but our cards have only just gone out 🤦🏼‍♀️. Anyone else chronically underestimate how busy the holidays are?!? 🙋🏼‍♀️ But, dang they’re fun! And seriously, look at these #siblings - who doesn’t want that kind of relationship for their kids someday?!? . . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #beavertonphotographer #beavertonfamilyphotographer #extendedfamilyphotos #sherwoodphotographer #sherwoodfamilyphotographer
Hashtag: couple goals. For real, friends, I want to be as cute as these two when my kids are teenagers. It was a little chilly during our session and his breath kept fogging up her glasses during their “romantic” poses 😂, but they just giggled at each other and rolled with it. 😘 Swipe for more. . . . . . . . #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #sherwoodphotographer #sherwoodfamilyphotographer #beavertonphotographer #beavertonfamilyphotographer #amandaevansphoto
“Can we bring our dog?” YES! I’ve had some really sweet pups along this Fall - swipe to see more family poses with this fur babe (who wisely tunneled under his family’s coats while he waited for us to wrap up). . . . . . . #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #sherwoodphotographer #sherwoodfamilyphotographer #amandaevansphoto #beavertonphotographer #beavertonfamilyphotographer
Been thinking up new ways to get relaxed, candid shots of families with older kids. I told these boys to watch their parents give each other a long, slow kiss ... 😘. Love this series of shots! . . . . . . . #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #sherwoodphotographer #sherwoodfamilyphotographer #sherwoodseniorphotographer #amandaevansphoto #lakeoswegophotographer #lakeoswegofamilyphotographer #lakeoswegoseniorphotographer
Those teensy details! Her lips and nose and eyelashes ... 🥰 And I mean, really, can you even remember fingernails so small?!? And how they’re all papery when babies are first born ... 😭😭😭 . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #portlandnewbornphotographer #pdxphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #pdxnewbornphotographer #newbornphotography #lifestylenewborn #sherwoodphotographer #sherwoodnewbornphotographer #sherwoodfamilyphotographer #tigardphotographer #tigardnewbornphotographer #tigardfamilyphotographer
Three cheers for Small Business Saturday!!! The gift of a photo session is always the right size. And your session fee supports toddler ballet, Kindergarten soccer, after school art lessons, and just enough new pillows to drive my husband crazy. . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #pdxfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #portlandphotographer #sherwoodphotographer #familyphotographer
Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving yesterday. I’m so grateful for all of you and your support this year! I LOVE (love, love, loooooove) seeing my clients’ images in print, so here’s the deal: if you use photos taken by me on your holiday card and send one to me; you’ll be entered into a drawing for a FREE 11x14 canvas ($95 value). You can DM for my address, or find it on your invoice. Can’t wait to see your cutie faces in my mailbox! . . . . . . . #pdxfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #pdxnewbornphotographer #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #portlandnewbornphotographer #amandaevansphoto #dearphotographer #sherwoodphotographer #lakeoswegophotographer #tualatinphotographer #tigardphotographer
This is why I love in home newborn sessions! Over the next year, I bet this new mom will see herself with her baby in this mirror hundreds of times. Early in the morning and in the middle of the night; smiling and yawning and maybe even crying. And in 10 years, I hope that this image helps it all come flooding back. . . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #portlandphotographer #portlandnewbornphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #pdxnewbornphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #kidsforreal #magicofchildhood #dearphotographer #childhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #lifestylenewborn #newborn #newbornphotography
Oh Fall. 🍁 I love you. When you’re sunny and reasonable. Anyone else grateful for dry sports games this Fall (not to mention minimal session rescheduling)!!? . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #sherwoodfamilyphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #portlandphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #sherwoodphotographer #wilsonvillephotographer #tualatinphotographer #tigardphotographer #lakeoswegophotographer
I’m not saying I’m a miracle worker, but I’m not saying I’m not either. 😂😂😂 I mean, there are 6 kids looking happily at the camera here. And cross my heart - no head swapping. 💗💗💙💙💗💙 . . . . . . . #sherwoodphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #lakeoswegophotographer #tualatinphotographer #tigardphotographer #wilsonvillephotographer #tigardphotographer #tigardfamilyphotographer #sherwoodfamilyphotographer #familyphotography #amandaevansphoto
My favorite kind of photo - relaxed and happy and real. Those two boys being silly, sister girl giggling at something hilarious they’ve just done, and the way Dad looks at Mom - I mean come ON! All while their sweet pup watches over them. These moments are real, but they take guiding and prompting, just like classic shots do. So if you look at this and think “that could never be my family” you may be mistaken (that’s a kind word for wrong 😉). . . . . . . . #portlandfamilyphotographer #portlandphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #lakeoswegophotographer #tualatinphotographer #sherwoodphotographer #seattlefamilyphotographer #wilsonvillephotographer #beavertonphotographer #tigardphotographer #familyphotography #amandaevansphoto
Shooting at this historic Portland house was really a treat, but even better was hearing this Westview Senior at work! . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #pdxsenior #pdxseniorphotographer #pdxphotographer #portlandphotographer #portlandseniorphotographer #portlandseniorphotos #pdxseniorportraits #pdx #portland
These bros! Also, I think it’s great and all when people attach sweet quotes to their posts, but honestly all I’ve got is Chris Farley yelling “Brothers don’t shake hands! Brothers gotta hug!” 🤷🏼‍♀️ 🤗 . . . . . . . . #kidsforreal #pdxfamilyphotographer #magicofchildhood #candidchildhood #dearphotographer #pdxphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #portlandphotographer #amandaevansphoto #brothers #familyphotos #sherwoodphotographer #tualatinphotographer
So much love for this sesh! I just don’t have time to blog right now so overgramming is going to have to have to be enough right now. . . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #portlandfamilyphotographer #portlandphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #familyphotos #sherwoodphotographer #tualatinphotographer
Monday’s got me like ... 💃🏼. Am I the only one who likes Mondays? It’s probably my most productive day of the week! . . . . . #kidsforreal #pdxfamilyphotographer #magicofchildhood #candidchildhood #dearphotographer #amandaevansphoto #pdxphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #portlandphotographer
3 cheers for another GORGEOUS Fall weekend!!! 🎉 🎉 🎉 Our streak of dry soccer games miraculously continues!!! 🙏 (Anyone else’s Fall completely overrun by soccer?!?) . . . . . . . #sherwoodphotographer #amandaevansphoto #pdxphotographer #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #magicofchildhood #candidchildhood #kidsforreal #dearphotographer #childhoodunplugged #sherwoodoregon #sherwoodoregonphotographer #oregonphotographer
Last call for Fall family sessions, friends! I’ve got a last-minute opening next Saturday 10/27 (*BOOKED*) and then a few November spots left. Get in touch soon to snag yours! Also, I do take sessions in December, but will not guarantee delivery by Christmas (because I also want to celebrate the holidays with my family). . . . . . . . . #pdxfamilyphotographer #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #amandaevansphoto #sherwoodphotographer #oneyearold #sherwoodoregon
Anyone else struggle to get in front of the camera with their kids? 🙋🏼‍♀️ Most of the time moms are the ones behind the camera, but client shots like these remind me that I need to get in the frame with my kiddos more often! Because just look at the way this Mama looks at her babe! 😍 . . . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #pdxfamilyphotographer #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #momswithcameras #cameramama #documentyourdays #magicofchildhood #kidsforreal
Getting this little lady’s one year session wrapped up! Also wondering if I should take her pics in to my hair gal for some Fall color inspo... 💁🏼‍♀️ . . . . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #pdxfamilyphotographer #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #magicofchildhood #kidsforreal #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged
Family hug! I’m a big fan photos of families with everyone all smashed together. . . . . . . . #pdxfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #amandaevansphoto #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer

Been shooting with some big kid families recently and I’ll often ask how long it’s been since their last family photo. TWICE this month I’ve been told “more than 10 years”. 😭😭😭 Even if your kids aren’t changing quite as quickly these days, if it’s been more than a couple of years since your last update - now is the time! You won’t regret it. Cross my heart. . . . . . . . #pdxfamilyphotographer #pdxphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #portlandphotographer #amandaevansphoto #makeportraits
Bought the big box of Pumpkin Spice mix at Costco last week. This week I’m working on this session fuuuullllll of Fall vibes. And we debate Halloween costume ideas as we drive to soccer every. dang. day.

Hey friends! I’ve had a few emails asking about Fall mini sessions, so here’s the scoop. I am not offering discounted Fall minis this year. HOWEVER, I do have a little workaround for you if you reeeeally want a mini. Drumroll please .... You can split a full session with a friend! I’ve still got some Fall spots available, so get in touch (and maybe grab a friend) soon. . . . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #familyphotography #familypictures

Dangit. I have seriously had the best time working with my Seniors this Summer! And I’m a little sad that Senior season is coming to a close. However, I can not wait to see what the next year holds for each of them! . . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #classof2019 #seniorpictures #seniorportraits #portlandphotographer #portlandseniorphotographer #portlandseniorphotos #portlandseniors #pdxphotographer #pdxseniors #pdxseniorphotographer #pdxsenior #seniorsunday #seniorguystyle #sherwoodhighschool #shs #sherwoodhighschool
Happy Holiday weekend! Hope you’re squeezing your people today. We’re doing both vacation detox (which at our house looks like green veggies and reasonable bedtimes) and back-to-school prep in to the next 72 hours over here ... 🤞🏼 so wish us luck! . . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #portlandphotography #pdxphotography #oregonphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #portlandfamily #portlandfamilyphotography #portlandfamilies #pdxfamily #pdxfamilyphotographer #pdxfamilies #pdxphotographer #magicofchildhood #kidsforreal #followthislight #momentsinthesun #dearphotographer #cameramama

I can remember a photo taken in a studio in the early 90’s of me with my mom. Each with our arms folded on a large mirror. That whole session serves as this sort of epic time capsule now, and I LOVE IT even more now than I did then! It’s so fun to think that in 5, 10, 15, or more years my clients will look back on their photos and be filled with nostalgia. Also, I just realized that I was wearing a blue jumpsuit for those photos, which is what I’m planning to wear for our upcoming family photos .... 😂😂😂😂 . . . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #portlandoregon #portlandphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdx #pdxphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #family #familypic #familypics #familypictures #familyphotography
I’ve met some really great extended families this Summer - and we’ve laughed, babies have cried, and we’ve either frozen (I’m looking at you Lincoln City!) or we’ve sweat, our booties off together! And somehow it’s a hilarious, crazy, fun time! If you’ve got holiday plans with family in town - be sure to get on my schedule early - because I’ve got holiday plans too! (Including a surprise trip for our kiddos! 🤗🤗) . . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #family #extendedfamily #portlandoregon #portlandphotographer #pdx #pdxphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #extendedfamily #extendedfamilysession #extendedfamilyphotos #extendedfamilyphotographer #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer #familypictures #familypics #familypic

Zoom in a little and look at each of their faces! Family magic, even in 97 degree weather. 😅 . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer
Crazy about those mama/son moments! Love the look on this guy’s face. 😘 . . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #portlandfamilyphotographer #pdxfamilyphotographer

Another fave from this recent Portland Senior session. Scheduling for busy high schoolers gets tougher once September hits, so don’t procrastinate booking your student’s session! . . . . . . . #amandaevansphoto #senior #senior #seniorguystyle #seniorpictures #seniorpics #portlandoregon #portlandphotographer #portlandseniorphotographer #pdx #pdxseniorphotographer #pdxphotographer #sherwoodhighschool #classof2019 #seniorportraits #seniors
Since our move to Portland last Summer, Cathedral Park has been on my list of locations to shoot. This month I shot a couple of sessions there, including this Senior!
