for old souls & sentimental hearts
Luminous, joyful, & connected
You want your children to never forget just how much you love them.
That doesn't have to mean relying on phone photos you aren't even in or stiff, awkward family photos that feel like a chore. Instead, let’s give your kids photos you're actually in, doing what you do best: loving them, big-time.
When you book family photos with me, I’ll guide you into flattering moments that allow for intentional, soulful family connection.
You’ll come away with artwork that will last a lifetime, reminding generations that your love existed, that it grew this family, and that you were here too.
I'm a Portland family photographer specializing in light, airy, and joyful family photos. In my ten years as a portrait photographer, I've come to realize that a family photo session is an opportunity to soak in every little thing you love about your family. To memorize the details of this instant in your child’s life before they grow again, to cuddle them no matter what age they are.
That's why I believe it is so important to take the time for a family photo session. I love to use natural areas around Portland and Oregon's Willamette Valley that reflect our family and our kids--beautiful, slightly wild, and home.
I curate your photos to show your family’s connection and joy: the cuddles, the laughs, and the peaceful, beautiful in-between.

It's no secret that hauling my kids to U-Pick farms is one of my favorite things to do when I'm not photographing families. Here are my local favorites!
