Hello! I am a family photographer specializing in documentary lifestyle photography in Portland, Oregon and surrounding areas. Creating natural and emotive images for children and families are my passion.
I book a limited amount of sessions each month, so please contact me to schedule your session accordingly.
As a documentary photographer, I see your family through an intimate lens. Families are so magical and unique in how they interact and view the world, even in the seemingly mundane daily chores and activities, which is why I thrive on documenting them. I strive to create a story that cannot be told through traditional portraiture and with your help, that vision comes to life. I have two children of my own and document their chaotic existence in my family as often as I can, but I know that finding time and also being part of the moment does not come easily. I want you to look back years from now at these memories and fully experience them again. The feel of your child's hand nestled on your face, the smell of a sweaty head after chasing each other through your yard, the warm embrace of your partner after the kids are in bed; these are fleeting but so important.
Sessions can take place in home or on location. It is important in our consultation to discuss what is important to you and your family. Activities, events, places are all aspects to think about as you want this to be true to your family! I will be there to guide you through the entire process with as little effort on your part as possible. My clients have found that not having to worry about clothing choices, hair and makeup, or freshly cut hair makes for a relaxing and comforting session with me. Please contact me with any questions. I look forward to photographing your family!
