I’m so excited to share Jamie’s beautiful maternity session in the blog today! Jamie is a passionate and caring fertility doctor who helps families grow everyday! She lives along the river and her wish was to have a photo shoot that would represent her home. The Willamette river at Kelly Point Park was the perfect location. Congrats Jamie on your little bundle of joy on the way!
In home newborn sessions are so special! I love documenting natural interactions between you and your baby (all the snuggles, kisses, loving gazes), as well as all the little un-posed details of being a baby. It was such an honor to capture these sweet newborn moments of baby Emilia and her parents Courtney and Brian!Read More
Make homemade Valentine’s Day cards for each other! Talk about how to encourage each other and include encouraging messages! Cut out heart-shaped pieces of paper and write one thing you admire about your kid on each heart. Read them to your kid one at a time and then hang them on the wall in their bedroom.Read More
Lifestyle is a trendy word right now, but what does it mean for family photographers? Here are some thoughts on what it means to me and what it looks like in the photography industry.

What is a fresh 48 newborn session?
A fresh 48 session is a special way to document the first 48 hours of your newborn's life in your hospital room or birth space. During your session, I document all the tiny and oh so sweet milestones such as first yawns, sibling introductions, first feedings, and lots of sleepy snuggles! These sessions are quiet and relaxed with a focus on connection. As your fresh 48 photographer, I am available on call for 2 weeks before your due date.
This fresh 48 session was extra special because I was there to photograph baby Eliana just MINUTES after her birth! Eliana Mary was born via C-section on January 4th, at 9:53am at Tuality Community Hospital in Hillsboro, Oregon. Her mother and father were beaming with joy and excitement as they welcomed their third baby-and first baby girl into the world. She arrived with the most beautiful red hair, and took to nursing right away! Click on the slideshow below to see more special moments from Eliana’s fresh 48!
