Portland Maternity Photographer

This past week, as a Portland Maternity Photographer,  I got to spend a wonderful evening pampering this glowing mom-to-be. Miriam will soon welcome her fifth baby! Doesn’t she look stunning? We wanted to show off her beautiful bump, and document this special time of expecting.

We started out in the studio with Stephanie, of Hair with Stephanie, doing Miriam’s hair and make-up. We played some music, chatted, and relaxed in the soft surroundings. We then picked some dresses from the studio wardrobe to try on, and set Miriam up on the bed in the studio. I just love the softness of these shots, and the quietness of the space.

We then chased the setting sun to the nearby field, where the golden light was pouring in. The field colors this time of year are so beautiful! The grass has grown and has turned golden, and the leaves are starting to change into their fall outfits. Perfect backdrop for a sweet maternity Shoot. And also a perfect color pairing with the dress that Miriam picked from the studio wardrobe. These earthy tones make my heart so happy, and they complement Miriam’s complexion perfectly.  Stephanie accompanied us to the field, and made sure Miriam didn’t have a single strand out of place. We three had a great time!

Miriam, you look stunning, and are beautiful inside and out. It was an honor to photograph you in this special time, and I can’t wait to meet your little one! I hope these images will remind you of this beautiful journey of bringing a little one into the world!

On this beautiful summer evening, as a Portland Oregon Family Photographer, I had the chance to photograph this beautiful family.

They had just been in to the studio for a milestone session the day before, which helped Baby L get warmed up to me. Summer sunset sessions are my favorite (fall sessions are amazing too). The breeze is cool but the air hot, and the light as the sun dips behind the trees is simply magical. It seems like everything glows.  As we move through the session I always encourage families to just relax and enjoy each other, and to pretend I’m not even there. I love seeing and capturing the little hugs and snuggles, kisses and giggles. Remembering these little things when the babies grow up is priceless! Remembering what it was like to hold him, and have him fit so perfectly in your arms; remembering the smell of his soft skin, remembering his tiny nose as you kiss it.

This morning as I stepped outside I felt the crisp air bite my cheeks, and I was reminded that fall is around the corner. As much as I love warm summer evenings there is something just so special about fall. Pumpkins, corn and apples, hay rides, colored leaves…perhaps because I was born in the fall, it seems like Fall and I are kindred spirits. Fall family portraits are also beautiful. The field changes with each passing season. In the spring the grass is bright green, then in the summer is grows tall and yellow. In the fall it seeds, creating a gorgeous soft backdrop for portraits. That, along with of course the changing leaves on the trees. After the end of October the leaves are gone and the winter chill sets in, so I normally stop shooting family portraits. But until then, I am looking forward to meeting many families this fall, to capture their special moments together in the beautiful fall-kissed field.

I marvel at each new life that comes into this world. Each tiny one I meet is beautiful, unique, perfect. And to know that the Maker wove them each to be the person they are an will be, and that their days as in His hand: it is such a miracle.  This precious little girl cam in to the studio with her stunning momma for a Mommy and Me mini session. Welcome to the world, Matilda!

I am so honored to have been chosen out of more than 200 local photographers! I am grateful to all my wonderful clients for their support, to my wonderful assistant, and of course to my family who constantly spares me so that I can pursue my passion. Photographing little ones as they arrive in the world is one of the most amazing experiences.  They are tiny and fresh for such a fleeting time, and to be able to immortalize those moments for parents is a true joy. I love incorporating neutral tones and soft textures into the photos, as well as infusing them with connection and emotionBest Portland Newborn Photographer

To celebrate, and since it is Labor day, I am offering 10% off any session booked between now and September 10th. Contact me to start planning your portrait experience today!top newborn photographer portland

    krystal - What a great honor and a wonderful deal! Congrats.ReplyCancel

Summer is coming to an end, and I’m trying to bottle up all the sunny memories we have made in the past few months. This spring I decided to slow down on the social media aspect of my business in order to spend time with my family. I am so glad I made that choice, even though it means that my blog is looking a little bare…But all the moments splashing, hiking, playing and laughing with my kids are far more important. So now that we’re bracing ourselves for a new school year, the familiar busy but steady routine is returning to our lives. Which means that maybe I can steal a few moments from my day-to-day to post some of my favorite sessions from this summer. I wish I could include all my amazing clients, but there are four little souls that need me too, so for the foreseeable future I will have to limit my blogging, instagramming, facebooking and other such endeavors.

I hope you enjoy these sweet images of little Kethan and his family. One of my favorite parts of being a photographer is to be a small but important part of a family’s milestones. I was able to photograph their baby girl when she arrived, and now to see her as a big sister is so special! Congratulations to this beautiful family!Portland Newborn Photographer11Portland Newborn Photographer01Portland Newborn Photographer02Portland Newborn Photographer10Portland Newborn Photographer03Portland Newborn Photographer09Portland Newborn Photographer04Portland Newborn Photographer05Portland Newborn Photographer06Portland Newborn Photographer07Portland Newborn Photographer08

Welcoming your very first baby is probably one of the most special moments in life. Is there anything more amazing then meeting that little piece of you for the first time? Looking in to her eyes and seeing your past, present and future? Becoming a parent, giving life to a whole new human being? This sweet family is absolutely in love with their brand new baby girl. And their love just shines through in these images. Little Saffyia is absolutely perfect, beautifully created and gifted to this sweet couple.
Congratulations to this new family of three!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful people who sacrifice of themselves daily, continually, and selflessly. To the amazing women who have in their hands the power to shape little lives into beautiful works of art. Motherhood is beautiful. It is hard, it is challenging, and immensely rewarding. It is a gift from God.
