Mandy & Avery!? Where do I even start with these two!? From their epic Alberta mural engagements to their elegant Portland wedding at Evergreen and now to this sacred time of expecting a new little Harrison. This is one of the best parts of my work, seeing my couples embark on life’s biggest and best adventures together! Mandy brought all the style to the maternity session with her looks, including a body hugging two piece for their at home session to a boho flowy light dress for their Mt. Tabor session. We split up the session, as they live close to Mt. Tabor and I love so many aspects about each location! From the details of home with their cute pup, their vinyl records and personal touches of their SE Portland home to the light-soaked pine trees and epic flowers and skies of Mt. Tabor, I loved it all! So happy for this warm-hearted and stylish couple who welcomed their darling little boy, Finley, this past August!
Are you expecting? Reach out via the quick contact form or dm me on Instagram. I personally thought maternity photos were something I wouldn’t do and I am so glad I did. My 4 yo son looks though our maternity album and points to him in mommas belly and it’s priceless! I’d love to hear from you and anywhere from 5 to 8 months is a great time to schedule.
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.
After photographing Sara and Monica’s wedding in 2016, I was so excited to hear that they were expecting! It was even more exciting to find out that they wanted to do a maternity shoot to celebrate this very special time. With views of Portland in the distance we captured beautiful photos at Mt. Tabor on the SE side of the city. Monica looked radiant in a floral blue dress against a backdrop of warm autumn colors. Sara and Monica are expecting a baby girl (yeah baby Irene- who I’ve since had the honor of photographing!) and decided to bring along their pup, Sasha, to complete their first family photoshoot. I absolutely loved the ultrasound photo and those teeny tiny baby booties! I couldn’t be happier for Sara and Monica and know that they are going to be two of the best moms to this little girl. Thank you for allowing me the pleasure of photographing another amazing time in both of your lives!
