Chasing the Sunset // Portland Maternity Photographer

I had such a good time galavanting across the countryside with these two (soon-to-be 3!).   The fact that this beautiful landscape is in our suburban backyard is just mind blowing and the look of love with these parents-to-be made it only more dreamy.  Adrienne and Jeff were such good sports as we chased the stunning sun-setting light and probably most definitely trespassed a teeny tiny bit with the getaway car ready and waiting.  I would do it again in a baby heartbeat:) #worthit #hotmama

A Dreamy Oregon Coast Session // Cannon Beach Family Photographer

As I was driving the scenic Oregon highway to get to this session I was so completely psyched at the beauty of the day.  It was a bit chilly, gray and cloudy, and the PERFECT conditions for these Colorado natives to capture their Oregon Coast Vacation as a new family of 3.  I am a sucker for cloudy days–it’s the perfect diffused light and the PNW notorious green landscape always pops with such deep and rich color!  Brynn and Zach were such a delight and their 7 month old baby Ivy is the sweetest!  I was in awe of the windswept landscape and the coast couldn’t have been a more ideal location to show their love.  This place is so dreamy, and I love that this awesome family wanted to capture a moment in time in such an ethereal way.

Welcome to the World, Jory! // Portland Newborn Photographer

It was such a privilege to capture not only a handsome newborn babe, but also see a long awaited adoption dream come true.  So many sweet details with this wee one– from the owl blanket made by his Mama 3 years prior to the cute green pacifier that seems to be in every home photo (that picture is for you, Auntie).  I loved meeting this family and photographing a literal dream come true. What a happy happy day!

Baby Ezra // Portland Newborn Photographer

At one week old, Baby Ezra has obviously stolen everyone’s heart (including mine).  I was so happy to do a session with Jacqueline and her family again after our gorgeous Winter Maternity Session.  I absolutely love the character and intimacy that doing a newborn session at HOME invites, and this was no exception.  All the details-from the homemade hats, booties, and blanket by Mom to the playful rock-n-roll sessions by the couch–they all add to this story of familial love.  I am so grateful to be invited to capture such a personal story of happiness!
