The family photo shoot in the Columbia River Gorge was a wild adventure! 

Embracing the Safari aesthetic against the Gorge’s stunning backdrop, we carefully curated picnic details, wrapped cheese in paper, blanket with straps, and donned stylish outfits from Banana Republic’s Safari-inspired collection.

The rugged Safari vibe perfectly complemented the Gorge’s natural beauty, resulting in effortlessly chic family portraits.
