Home is wherever I'm with you

We did this maternity session at the tail end of Summer. Thankfully we got lucky and some of the flowers were still in bloom! This little nursery in Lake Oswego is such a perfect spot for an arrangement of different backgrounds and flowers! I am always on the lookout for new locations to shoot at […]

I was a little nervous knowing I had a family of 7 coming for their newborn session, two of which we’re boxers! I absolutely love incorporating doggie siblings into photos, but sometimes it can be a bit of a challenge. But not for these guys! All four of Verity’s siblings were so well behaved and […]

When Sylvia’s mom emailed me that she was expecting again, I was so excited! Her big sister Evalina was one of my favorite newborns I’ve photographed. She was so beautiful, and a total dream the whole session! Sylvia did not disappoint. She was just as pretty and sleepy as her big sister was, and gave […]

Have I mentioned how much I love photographing twins? It’s probably one of my favorite things. Watching one calm down immediately after setting the other one next to them will never cease to amaze me! These two were absolutely adorable and did so good for their session! Even their puppy siblings did a great job. […]

When Megan showed up for her maternity session, I was so excited to photograph her in the falls leaves. Her red hair matched the perfectly and gave off such a cool autumn look. This location in Tigard (right by my little home studio) is so gorgeous in the fall! Everything turns orange and yellow, October […]

I was so excited to see these two baby girls again! I got to photograph them as newborns, and I absolutely love seeing how they grow into little people over a year. They were so happy for their session and such little dolls! They didn’t really think I was funny, but good thing mom and […]

A few weeks after we did her mama maternity sessions at the beach (view that session HERE!), Kaia made her appearance. We did her session on day 17, which is a little bit older than what I normally shoot at. But she was an absolute dream for her session! Kaia means Ocean in Hawaiian, so […]

This sweet girl was one of my favorite sessions of 2018! She was such a little doll, and had lots of smiles for the camera! Because her name was Ivy, I wanted to do some sort of vine/floral setup. This is one of my favorite photos from this past year. She was a great little […]

One of my photographer friends who use to do newborn sessions but moved on to weddings, sent me a referral of one of her past clients. It was actually a session that I got to assist her with. Hudson’s parents were adopting another baby boy and were wanting to get newborn and family photos again! […]

Every year I host a booth at the Portland Babyfest NorthWest Expo. I love getting to see and meet so many expecting moms all in one place! It’s known as Portland’s biggest baby shower. It is the largest event in the northwest for new and expecting parents. There are hundreds of vendors, lots of prizes, […]
