Portland Family Photographer

I’m Jess, a family portrait photographer in Portland, Oregon. I capture images full of life and sentiment while keeping with a style that will stand the test of time. I believe that the moments we capture during your family session are meant to be displayed in your home or kept safely within a lasting photo album. That’s why I specialize in offering fine art keepsakes to my clients that can be shared for generations.

The Power of Print.

Whether you’re interested in fine art prints, custom wall art, or heirloom photo albums, I offer the highest quality print products – and I guarantee them for life.

Let’s capture the moment

How this works

01. Say Hello

Send me a message through my contact form to get the ball rolling! We will chat about your ideal session and I’ll give you all of the details you need to know before I send over a booking proposal.

02. Planning

Let’s take the stress of ‘What should we wear?’ off of your plate first. I take the time to have a personal styling consultation with each and every client about 2 weeks before our shoot. Your closet is likely full of great options already and together we will decide which pieces will look best for your session.

03. Have Fun!

The day is finally here! Becuase we’ve already had a chance to get to know each other, meeting up for our session is 100% stress free. Everyone will know what to expect and the whole family can just relax. I create an experience for your family that is actually fun and will bring everyone closer together.

04. Ordering Appointment

This is the best part! About a week after our shoot we will meet in person to view the images from your session. Simply choose the images you love the most and we’ll decide what to do with them! Create a custom album, design a gallery wall, or curate a selection of fine art prints.

05. Delivery

When your artwork is finished I will hand deliver everything to your home. If you’ve selected wall art, each piece will be professionally installed – free of charge. Now you get to enjoy your family’s beautifully printed keepsakes each and everyday.

style Guide for Your Family Portrait Session

When planning a family photoshoot, the question I get the most is “what should we wear?”. It’s a lot for a busy parent to coordinate outfits for everyone and oftentimes the wardrobe gets pushed off until the last minute. I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be this way! With a few helpful guidelines it’s easy to narrow our options and bring clarity to your wardrobe.

Jess is a dream to work with! We hired her for our wedding and 5 years later for family photos. She is the utmost professional, timely with getting photos to you! With our boys for family photos she was laid back and made it work with a toddler and infant. Lastly, her work is stunning! Can’t recommend enough”
