Welcome! I am a baby and children’s photographer who specializes in on location sessions. I am based outside of Salem, Oregon but am happy to travel up to 60 miles which includes the greater Portland area (Wilsonville, Lake Oswego, Newberg, McMinnville, Sherwood, Tigard, Tualatin, Canby, Oregon City, West Linn, etc) , Corvallis, and the Oregon coast.
My style of children’s photography is simple and clean. I prefer to have the focus be on your child to showcase their personality and what makes them special. I have plenty of experience working with babies and young children and know that the toddler years (especially ages 2-3!) can be a difficult age. I have found that outdoor sessions with these ages are much better and gives your child more freedom in movement and they are less distracted and bored by “looking at the camera”. I like to have fun with them and will often play for a bit so they warm up to me, especially with kids who tend to be a bit shy. Please don’t stress if you feel like your child is being uncooperative, I work quick and often catch great expressions that you didn’t realize I even saw!
I have a portable studio set up that I use on occasion with babies under 18 months. I generally use it during inclement weather months but can also use it on request or if you prefer the more formal look of an indoor studio session.
