Newborn Photography
Portland, Oregon

Maybe your feeling that lovely pregnancy glow... but maybe you're not and unsure as to whether or not you want maternity photos. 

I'm here to meet you where you're at and help you remember this special time with your baby through a maternity photo session. 

I'll be honest, I did not feel that pregnancy glow. My pregnancy was really taxing on my body and I gained a lot of weight really fast, making me super uncomfortable. However, as a photographer I knew that I would want maternity photos. So that I could always have beautiful images of myself with my baby inside me. And let me tell you, I'm so glad I have those images. It's incredible looking back on them and thinking about this tiny little human who was growing in there. 

It might not feel totally important in this moment. But you can never get these moments back. You will thank yourself for making the investment. Every person I've spoken to who didn't do maternity portraits, regrets it now.

Frequently Asked Questions & Answers! 

When should I book my Portland maternity photography session?

When considering maternity & newborn photography, I recommend reaching out in your second trimester. Maternity photos are best done during weeks 26-35. This can be different for everyone depending on how you are carrying. You want a well-defined bump, but don't want to be feeling super uncomfortable during your session. 

Where do maternity photo sessions happen? 

All petite maternity sessions take place at my studio in SE Portland. While full family maternity sessions can either take place at my studio or at one of my pre-approved outdoor locations. You can view and choose from this list after booking. All of my locations are within 30 miles of my SE Portland studio. If you are interested in family maternity photos at the coast, farther out into the Gorge, or near Mt. Hood, this can be arranged and incurs a travel fee.

All outdoor sessions take place in the 90 minutes before sunset when the light is the most beautiful. Outdoor sessions take place from April through November in the Portland area. Studio sessions are offered year-round. 

How long do maternity sessions last?

Full family maternity sessions take about one hour. Petite maternity sessions are for pregnant person only and take about 20 minutes with up to 3 outfit changes.

Yes, I will connect you with my hair and make-up artist, who you can book directly. She is amazing and will help you look and feel your best for your session. She specializes in enhancing and highlighting your natural features so your makeup is subtle and looks perfect for the camera. Even if you don’t typically wear a lot of makeup, I highly recommend scheduling with her because she knows what looks good on camera.  amazing and will pamper you a bit before your session helping you to look and feel your best!

Will you help us figure out what to wear?

Absolutely! My goal is to make your portrait experience as stress-free as possible. After you complete the booking process we'll set up a zoom planning call to discuss outfits for the entire family. I also have a feminine wardrobe with over 60 dresses (sizes XS-XXXL) and a baby wardrobe for sizes 0-18 months. Together, we'll make sure everyone looks and feels their best for the photo session.

Are digitals included in our Portland newborn session?

Digital images can be purchased during your reveal and ordering appointment. Most of my clients choose to purchase their digital images in addition to heirloom albums and custom framed artwork. I encourage you to really think about how you want to enjoy your images 10, 20 years from now. How do you plan on displaying your images in the future? I'm here to help you bring your photos to life in your home, making sure they don't get lost on outdated technology.
