Frequently asked questions
How would you describe your style?
My style is all about photographing genuine, natural moments . My editing style is bright with soft tones and inspired by film photography. My family sessions are playful to ensure your children have fun and create meaningful moments. I like to use prompts to inspire candid moments, but I will take some posed photos as well.
When will we receive our images?
I promise a 3 weeks on gallery turn around time. If you need your images sooner, I offer a 48 hour rush delivery for $150.
What types of sessions do you offer?
I specialize in family and lifestyle newborn photography which includes outdoor family photography, in-home newborn photography, birth space (fresh 48) photography, maternity photography, milestone sessions, and small family events. I also offer couples sessions and engagement photography. Every family begins with a love story!
Can I bring my dog?
Yes, please do! As a crazy dog mom, I love having pets join in on family photos! If you bring your dog along to your session, it is helpful to bring another set of arms to hold your dog while he or she is not in the shot. Some Portland area locations I use do not allow dogs, so make sure you let me know ahead of time if you are bringing one, to help plan your session location. Other non-human family members are welcome as well.
What if it rains?
Here in the beautiful Willamette Valley, it rains a lot! I will check in with you about the weather before your shoot to make sure the weather is still going to cooperate. Did you know cloudy skies create beautiful, soft lighting? No need to reschedule if it is an overcast day! However, if a downpour is in the forecast, we can easily reschedule your session! Your retainer will transfer to your new session date if you need to reschedule due to weather. Do you love the rain? Great, wear your rain boots and I will bring along a cute umbrella!
