Portland Family Photographer

Candid, Natural, & light-filled

Hi, I’m Jess

I’ve been photographing families and couples in Portland for over 8 years. I love to capture the unique personalities of the familes I work with. If you prefer those candid moments over perfect poses and you like to explore a bit of nature with your family we will love working together!

My Services

Portland’s Best Family Photoshoot Locations

There are so many wonderful options for the perfect family photoshoot location in Portland. We are lucky to be surrounded by an abundance of natural areas with forests, meadows, and rolling hills all within the greater Portland area. I’ve managed to narrow it down to a list of my top 5 places to shoot.

Why work with me

Celebrating All Families

I believe in creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all families regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or ability.

Experience & Knowledge

I’ve been photographing couples and families for over 8 years. No matter the situation, I have the experience to capture your session in my signature style and create photos that you will love forever.

Personal Connection

Getting to know each couple and family I work with is the best part of my job! This way I can jump straight into getting creative with everyone and capture a lot of beautiful images within in our short session.

Stress-free photography

My goal is always to make the familes I work with feel completely comfortable being themselves in front of the camera. I’ll be guiding you and giving clear, easy direction throughout our session.

We will set a time and location to meet up and shoot on your chosen session date. Most sessions take place within the Portland area and last 45 mins to an hour.


Receive Your Gallery

Family Session Style Guide

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. With a few helpful guidelines it’s easy to narrow our options and bring clarity to your wardrobe.

Family Sessions begin at $690

Choose from one of three image collections – each with a variety of high-res digital downloads and access to archival print products.
