As a part of my service as a Portland photographer, I offer a pre-session consultation when we can sit down and talk about everything from location to styling to expectations. Good planning will help everything come together during your session. Do you want something funky and urban, or soft and natural? Do you want art for your wall at home or are you just looking for an updated photo for your Christmas card? These are some of the questions I have before I even pick up my camera! While shooting, I work hard to capture natural expressions and interactions, with a variety of posed and un-posed shots. I love images that show natural interactions, but also believe that some posing is necessary to get the best light and flattering angles. Most of all… let’s have fun!
KIDS, SENIORS AND FAMILIES ($150 for up to 2 hours long)
Children are the reason that I got into this business. I want to capture the essence of my kids’ childhood before they grow up and it is forgotten. This is why I work extremely hard to photograph the ‘heart’ of your child, so their personality and demeanor comes out in your images. I use a variety of tricks to get past that “fake smile” and make them laugh. I also enjoy working with special needs kids, so if you have a child with autism, sensory issues, or physical limitations and have been scared to potentially “waste” money on professional photographer because you fear your child will just melt down… don’t worry. We will work together to capture their joy!
NEWBORNS ($200 for up to 3 hours long)
Newborn sessions are shot in your own home, and can take up to three hours to allow time for feedings, changing and comforting. The best time to photograph your baby is between birth and 2 weeks old. The reason for this is because they sleep better during the session. I also highly recommend that parents get into a few photos because no matter how puffy you may feel after giving birth, there is something magical about those photos with your brand new, teeny-tiny baby. Do you have twins or triplets? No problem. I have twins myself and have photographed MANY sets of multiples. With enough hands on deck… anything is possible.
WEDDINGS (Packages start at $2000)
I absolutely love shooting weddings. It is truly an honor to watch a couple’s wedding day unfold in front of my camera. I love being able to capture the emotion and beauty of their celebration. We will work together before hand to ensure that your special day goes smoothly so that you can enjoy it, and I can capture it!
