Molly and Ryan celebrated their engagement among the potted plants and hanging vines of Blockhouse and Pomarious a stunning local Portland plant nursery. The couple are merging their households and beginning a life together as a beautiful family of five, which meant I had the chance to meet and document their lovely children, Sara, Ben and Jackson. After a fun family photo session, we snuck away with Molly and Ryan to wander among the inspiring greenhouses and capture some intimate moments during a stunning sunset. Molly is a master gardener and we had a blast talking about plants and flowers. They are getting married this September at their home residence in their own gorgeous garden among a small group of family and friends. I can’t wait to capture their special day along with their nearest and dearest.
Your house is your home and it really does represent your family love especially during this trying time! Your 15-20 minute mini session will include your immediate family in a short and sweet photo session at your Portland home to celebrate your strength during Covid-19. Your porch, driveway, balcony, sidewalk or garage can act as a great backdrop for these portraits. This is a historic time and you will want to remember the beauty in the chaos!
Feel free to be casual in jeans and t-shirts with bare feet or make it funny with pajamas and wine! 15% of each session goes towards our charity partner at the Oregon Food Bank to support families in need.
I will maintain a 10 feet+ distance and will be wearing a mask. I will be using longer lenses to achieve the “close up” looks. I’m always happy to include your new baby, furry friends and maternity for the portraits. Your online gallery will be available for 48 hours for you to choose the two that came in your package and order additional prints, digitals or albums. Booking May sessions now at this site.
Welcome to the world Baby Jack! I’m SO thrilled to have spent the day with Michelle, Dave and Jack Henry. I had the honor of photographing M&D’s stunning wedding in 2009 and I couldn’t be happier for them and their newest addition. His baby toes and hands make me smile, as does the warmth and joy of this new family!
Baby Harper Jane was born in July and is as cute as a button! I was lucky enough to document her parent’s beautiful wedding back in 2008 and am SO happy for them and their new family!
Adore these pics of both mom and dad giving kisses to baby Harper! I think these two black and white images would be stunning as a side-by-side canvas!
Look at those eyes!
A beautiful family!
Harper is such a little doll baby! I bet her beautiful hair and blue eyes make all the other little baby girls jealous on the play ground!
Love this last pic of the day where baby Harper is asleep after a long day of modeling!
Baby Harper Jane is such a sweet and calm little girl! I was SO thrilled to find out that Mona and Jeff were expecting and my heart melted a little when I heard she was a baby girl named Harper Jane! Is this not the cutest name for a baby girl ever!? I held her and she was super bright eyed and curious about all the photography equipment and props in the studio. (A promising new photographer!?)
