Random picture of the day - Monday :: Jennifer Aniston in miniature ;)

Doesn't she look like her though? ...One of my most favorite models to date ;)

And since I like having a quote for each of my random photo posts, here is one of Jennifer Aniston, herself: “The greater your capacity to love, the greater your capacity to feel the pain.” And that is so true...

Random picture of the day :: Smiles :: Elena Wilken Children Photographer

elena wilken

A smile costs nothing but gives much.  It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give.  It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.  None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.  Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.  Some people are too tired to give you a smile.  Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.  ~Author Unknown

Furry little friends :: Elena Wilken :: Portland OR Children Photographer

elena wilken

It was a very windy and cold morning, the morning of this session, but this cute little man kept us on the move. I love sessions like this - they better and sharpen my skills and I can really capture my little subject's personality, because there is not a lot of posing going on. Well, there is the intention of setting up poses, and from there on I'm on my own :)

Sanda, you're a great mommy ;) Bringing along his favorite toys and furry little friends set us up for a great session! He was such a little trooper putting up with the cold and windy weather. Happy late birthday to you little Josh!

H is for Hazel :: Elena Wilken :: Portland Or. Children Photographer

I first photographed her about 8 months ago, as a tiny little 9 days old newborn. She's still a dainty little girly, bright eyed and as happy, mellow and content as they come. 

I might've said that before, but I believe this is my favorite age to photograph. While their attention span is not extremely long, they laugh at your silliness and think you're interesting enough to make eye contact. And the best part - you have a captive audience. They can sit up, but they can't outrun you ;)

Thanks guys for choosing to have me document this season in her life. I enjoyed it so much.

And the weather was perfect. I love our overcast skies in Portland, when we get them! (I'm not quite as fond of the rain, but I guess you can't have one and not the other).


Little Sam :: Elena Wilken :: Portland Or. Photographer

Between the innocence of babyhood and the dignity of manhood, we find a delightful creature of a boy.

While taking pictures of Sarah the other week, I snuck in a few of Sam as well, her big brother :) He is getting so big, so fast :)

I was going through some of the files from last year, on the back ups and I came across some of his photos. He is not a little baby anymore, not even a little boy. 

...These images got me so excited about all the fall colors - all this beauty and all the honey like and fiery red hues are just around the corner :)  I am very much looking forward to all the sessions I have coming up in the next couple of months! Fall and spring are my most favorite - fall probably even more than spring.
