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.
2020 might not have been exactly what anyone expected, but for so many it allowed time to slow down and soak in precious moments with our family. Through my Portland Front Porch Portrait series, documented in May 2020, during the mandated quarantine due to the Covid 19 pandemic, I photographed 15 families that wanted to encapsulate this unprecedented time with family portraits. Remembering all the beauty in the chaos and to hold memories of strength at home with our nearest and dearest loves.
I’m so excited to share some highlights from the Portland families I had the pleasure of photographing, making the best of a tough year and creating joy together during the lockdown of 2020. These were all photographed by me, with a mask on, all at a proper social distance using longer and telephoto lenses outside on families porches, and yards.Thank you to all the families who chose me to document these bittersweet memories at home and for sharing your personal thoughts about the experience. I’ve included select quotes along with photographs to share this strength in our homes and our families during this hard time. Hugs to you all and stay safe out there!
The holidays are coming up quickly and we can’t wait! For a special treat for our awesome past clients, and potential new clients, we would like to offer a fun portrait shoot at Laurelhurst Park on Sunday,October 13th. The session is 30 fun filled minutes in and around the park for $199. This is a great opportunity for fresh family portraits, or a sweet anniversary gift to each other! These photos would be perfect for holiday cards and will showcase the beauty of Oregon’s changing season. Of course, a secondary rain location will be determined if the weather is really bad!
After your shoot we’ll set up an appointment for you at our studio soon after to come in to view the photos on our large screen to decide which of our awesome products you would like to order. Anything that you order at that time will be 15% off! Let us know right away if you’re interested– sessions are filling up fast! See you soon in the pretty leaves! 🙂
