Photographer and postpartum doula, preserving memories, and providing care since 2017.
That being said, I want us to *click* (pun intended). I want you to feel comfortable with me behind the camera, no matter the session. As a newborn photographer, the safety of your baby is of the utmost importance to me. In addition to being a photographer, I am also a postpartum doula! This experience has contributed to my confidence in safely handling your newborn, and I hope that it is additionally a contributing factor to building and earning your trust in me.
Hi there, I am your photographer! I offer newborn photography, family photography, and more in Vancouver, WA, Portland, OR, and surrounding areas. I am an experienced postpartum doula, and as such I want you to feel as seen and cared for as your baby is during their session. Read more about me here.
Contact me! We will discuss your photography needs via email, phone, or zoom (whichever you prefer!)
We will decide on date, time, and location at this time. Sometimes, with newborn sessions, this may be a tentative date.
I will send you my contract and invoice to complete the booking process, as well as a questionnaire to give me a better idea of what you are looking to get out of your session.
Within 14 days* of your session date you will receive a link to a viewing gallery. At this time you will view and choose the photos that come with your package.
*Contract states 30 days, but I like to strive for a quicker turnaround.
Once your selection is made, I apply final edits, and send you your selection for download!
Additional photos are available for purchase, and can be downloaded once the additional invoice is paid.
Illness and COVID-19 Policy
How can I prepare for my baby's newborn session?
The Pacific Northwest is so soggy, what if it rains for my On Location session?
Do I have to order prints through you?
Do you have mini sessions?
Do you offer other services, like headshots and wedding photography?
In order to protect my clients and my family, I will wear a mask during your indoor session.
We will have to reschedule your session if you are experiencing any symptoms of illness, including Fever, Onset of cough, Worsening of chronic cough, Sudden loss of taste/smell, Shortness of breath, New or unexplained GI symptoms, or been in contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID in the past 14 days.
* It is helpful to have a pacifier on hand. Even if your baby doesn't seem to take one, it can be helpful during a session.
* Try to avoid tight fitting clothing before the session, and loosen baby's diaper at least 20 minutes beforehand.
* If you have an item that you're thinking of bringing to the session feel free to send me a photo! I will try my best to include it in a way that you can cherish forever.
Honestly, you've got a lot going on in the postpartum days. The things mentioned above can make the session and editing easier, but what I would really like is for you to prepare to come in and relax while I photograph your baby.
I don't mind working in or around the rain, and overcast makes for some pretty beautiful lighting! However, I understand the desire to stay warm and dry. I am happy to change locations or reschedule due to the weather, at your request, with at least a 24 hour notice. Additional information on rescheduling and cancellations is outlined in my contracts.
When you receive your digital images from me, you are also granted the print rights, which means you are welcome to print your own photos from the un-watermarked digitals that you will be downloading.
If you would like to order professional quality prints and canvases, I go through Symbiosis Printing.
I offer mini sessions once or twice a year, typically around the holidays. I post about them on my social media!
Yes! I frequently do headshots for local business owners and entrepreneurs, and I occasionally shoot weddings. I also work closely with organizations like Ready Set GROW, Jewell Chiropractic, Itsabelly Doulas, The Hummingbird Confectionery, and ITTC, photographing their classes, events, and more!
Some examples of these can be found in my extended portfolio.
Feel free to contact me to set something up, or to see more of those portfolios.
