Creating newborn art has been such a rewarding journey for me. Personally, being a cancer survivor and loathing the fact that I may not be able to have another of my own.
This mum contacted me when her bubba just got home from the hospital and the entire time I was just trying to hold my tears back. They've waited 12 years for his arrival. 12. That's over a decade. After many rounds of IVF. I just sank.
The importance of documenting his birth is nothing short of a miracle. He chose them to be his parents and he came into their lives for a reason!
However, Mum and Dad almost didn't choose the newborn family session option and I was not about to let that happen. They needed to be included the session just as much, they are every bit deserving to honor and celebrate this incredible moment.

I just adore Quinn's 4 months milestone session in her nursery. I also just love non-traditional colors for girls. The wood finishes plus the uses of metal hardware just really added to the approach of rustic modern.
Every corner had details that reflected Mom and Dad's "Americana" wedding theme. We've also incorporated some of the same sentimental pieces in her newborn session too! This storyboard is beyond interactive, and they are every bit the most fun and easy going family I could ever have the privilege to create art for <3

I met this lovely family for an outdoor maternity photo shoot in Portland, Oregon area park. I think we got some great shots before they become a family of 4, and some little girl is super excited to become a big sister! :) If you are interested in having a maternity photography session, contact me for more information.
So a whole year has gone by and I swear it hasn't been that long since Mum's maternity session. And then, he's practically running away now! Curly-tendril-star-boy is without a doubt a hearth throb and easily one of the happiest baby ever. Cake smash was with his favorite Mickey Mouse which went with the ripcity color theme perfectly.
We will see more of him taking after his Dad for sure. Portland Trailblazer's little league? Does this all need to happen? Yes!

Another handsome boy, and I tell you- it's been a boy year so far for me! Getting to know the parents and knowing their history definitely helps me invest into their session. I can best tailor preferences, taste and the ideal prop to use.
Dad was in the police force and wants to stick to something more classic, while Mom loves anything taupe in color. Baby came out with the most Gerber lips I had ever seen. That pucker is enough to make me want another.

Jenni and her husband, incredible people first of all. Found me in the local Happy Valley Moms group and reached out after seeing they were expecting a girl. After a few tries with IVF treatment, they were blessed with their first child. I personally love hearing these stories from my clients because I can curate that much better for my sessions going in.
When they arrived, she showed me this onesie that was given to her from the nurses that helped delivered. They took very good care of mom and baby and she wanted to dedicate an image to send a thank you card. I literally thrive on sentimental efforts! (Hold back that tear, do not do this right now Josie!).
They are most deserving and super blessed, but excuse me while I ogle over those cheeks of hers! If you are interested in having a professional newborn photo shoot of your little one, contact me for more information or to book a session!

The reason why I take the time to give a consultation at my portrait studio, is to visually carry out parents wishes and dreams. Now Dad tells me he is second generation to graduate from the University of Oregon and see to it about making a tradition. This is how legacy begins. This, is family history in the making.
Jordan Kent is also the correspondent for the Portland Trailblazers so Oregon is definitely on the maps here- roaring PDX loud and proud.
Not only do we have all those happening, there's also that Calvin has ice-blonde-hair and gorgeous as Mom. And Tiffany, by the way is a TV chef making delicious recipes.

Oh Kenzo... this marks our half way through his Baby's First Year package and its usually one that I look forward to the most!
They change so much since their newborn session by this point and able to wobble around being little explorers. Not to mention the chunkiness and the dough-eyed cute monster-eating machines that we just all want to squeezeeeee, arghhh!
Oh, and he even brought his reading snuggle pal with him. I-just-can't. :)

Doll face is what she is! Parent's had just moved from another country with a chiropractic office so they had their plates full to say the least. However, even then they knew the importance of documenting this journey, a start of a new life with fleeing times.
I was impressed first time parents caught on so quickly because it was- one of my biggest regrets as a Mom- not having newborn or maternity photos taken thinking I had all the time in the world. I'm glad that these images of their princess will be cherished for years to come....

I had photographed their first baby a few years ago and I was delighted to hear Mum's due to expect twin boys this time. But, then I got the text- that one of the baby had passed and was delivered. However, they were able to keep Baby B.
I think I sat there still for a couple of minutes because it was such a fragile moment. I had a lump in my throat and remembering just how to approach not only as a photographer, but also as a friend and a fellow human. Of course, this is the last thing I'd expect to hear from anyone. It broke my heart.
The very least I could do is document to my heart's abilities for the family's memories because this will forever live in their hearts and soul. Not only that, we should celebrate just how resilient Baby B is- this is his legacy!
