What’s more beautiful than a newborn baby? Two newborn babies!! These gorgeous little babes were born a few weeks ago and I was lucky enough to have a photoshoot with them at home. They are healthy, happy & the light of their parent’s lives. It is so fun to capture newborn babies at home in the first few weeks of life.Newborn-Portraits

This family in particular is a blessing to me as they are personal friends and I taught them my first solo child birth classes and supported them in breastfeeding. So… I’ve been with these tiny people from the beginning! It’s so fun to see their personalities begin to shine through and get a glimpse of some of their first smiles. What pure joy.

Bridgit has been a key part of our lives for a little over three years. She was my son’s first teacher (outside of home). She teaches for an organization called Music Together, a wonderful program for teaching babies and small children the joys of music. An it is so joyful! Bridgit couldn’t be more full of life and love. My son (and many other children of Portland) loves her SO much.

But these two beauties are lucky enough to have Bridgit as their mama and this lovely fellow Jared as their papa!

We recently got together on a brilliant autumn evening for family portraits. I love it when I get to capture a family’s portraits for the first time. Such a sweet family, a wonderful time was had by all!

There is nothing more exciting, inspirational and celebration worthy than the birth of a new human! Recently, my friends Clare and Patrick asked me to photograph them at home with their new baby boy. I was thrilled by the opportunity! Clare gave birth at home and everything was so calm and cozy when I arrived a few days later. Grandparents were visiting and helping out around the house, baby was nursing well. The family dog was getting use to his new role as second most important creature in the house! And Clare and Patrick were getting snippets of sleep. Giving birth to or bringing home your new child is such a magical event, I’m so happy that I get to be a part of collecting treasured memories for this sweet family. Congratulations to all!

I recently had the pleasure of meeting up with this adorable crew for some family portraits in the park. Late summer / early fall has a special kind of magic light the adds a warm, soft glow to all portraits this time of year. I love being part of a family’s memory keeping. I get the help everyone in the family remember the good times that are shared over the years. It is such an honor and delight! Sarah, Aaron and these cuddly boys are so lucky to have each other. Thanks for a super fun portrait session y’all!

I recently had the pleasure of spending an hour with this lovely lady at Cathedral Park capturing her senior portraits. Working with high school seniors is such a delight because I get to see a personality unfold during our shoot at such an interesting time in a person’s life. High school seniors have a fantastic sense of style and humor. Especially the women of St. Mary’s Academy! We had a great time and got a wonderful collection of images that really capture this young woman’s essence.
