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!

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 for family photos.

Why work with me

Celebrating All Families

I am dedicated to providing a comfortable, respectful, and joyful photography experience for families of all ethnicities, genders, ages, body types, and physical abilities.

No Stress

My goal is always to make the families 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.

Candid & Creative

The relaxed and easygoing vibe of my photo sessions very much reflects my own personality. I like to keep things more candid rather than overly-posed. I’ll guide your family in a way that feels natural and captures your real connection!

Family Session Style Guide

When planning a family session, 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 choose the perfect outfits!
