Celebrating 70 on the Waterfront | Portland Family Photographer

As we age, it seems to me that adult birthdays are pushed to the side; time, organization, or feeling a lack of inspiration all contribute to not making the most of what should be a treasured day. I'm guilty of this myself, finding that the decade celebrations hold the most sway because they feel important. Just something to ponder among the other 5 million things you think about during the week.

But birthdays aren't just for kids. 

We met at Skidmore Fountain, walked through the Saturday Market, laughed, played and took in all the sights Portland has to offer. The honoree is a former civil engineer, so we spent time looking and talking about the bridges of Portland. I learned a lot about the history and making of each bridge we came across on our walk! I love meeting new families and spending enough time with them to truly get to know them, especially when they are happy to share their knowledge and experiences (and know how to have fun!).
