LAKE OSWEGO NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER | EDEN

Lake Oswego Newborn Photographer | Eden’s Newborn Session

Edgar Degas is credited with saying, “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”

Everyone photographs their baby. Ubiquitous smartphone cameras are superb for documenting cute pics of your baby. But, I think I can deliver a product that goes beyond cute baby pics on your smartphone. My job as an artist is to make you see the exquisite beauty of your newborn in a profound new way. I want you to feel her authentic, natural, and inherent beauty.

I was so excited when Melissa contacted me about scheduling a session for their third baby!  I photographed Autumn, their middle child, as a newborn too. You can see her newborn photos Here.  Now with the birth of Eden, Autumn has been promoted to big sister and Cole remains in his role of doting big brother!  You should know, too, that Melissa is a wonderful photographer.  She can take beautiful photos of her baby…but she still chose to hand the reins over to me for this one so that she can relax into the role of mama and let me show them Eden’s beauty through my lens.  Such a privilege and honor!!

As a seasoned Portland newborn photographer, I’m no stranger to the beauty of a newborn baby.  But look at the miraculous arc of her lips.  Do you see the perfectly sculpted hands and toes of this tiny babe?  Look at the pristine contours of her resting face accentuated by the light in my Salem photography studio.  I want mom and dad to see these photographs years down the road and be reminded of how perfectly beautiful she was when she first arrived and made them a family of five.

Thank you so much for allowing me to capture these photographs of your precious family!

LAKE OSWEGO NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER | MORGAN

Lake Oswego Newborn Photographer | Morgan’s Newborn Session

It has been said that children learn to smile from their parents. This little one already has a smile that dwarfs the summer light, so Mom and Dad have taught her well.  But, I suspect that she has taught them a thing or two about smiling as well.  The love, joy and peace that exists between mom and dad and this gorgeous girl was palpable during the shoot. My goal was to craft a work of art that communicated the compelling relationship I saw and felt that day.

I loved watching the light pour perfectly over this little one…highlighting Morgan’s delicate features. Her face, her hands, feet, lips…every detail…reveal quiet beauty. I cannot adequately express how much I appreciate this family for allowing me to photograph this precious time in their lives. Thank you so much for coming to my studio in Salem, Oregon.

I’m so excited about these finished photographs of Morgan that were created during our session. It’s always my goal for the  art I create to mirror the beauty of your family; I think these photographs successfully do so. I also think you all have taught me something about smiling:  surround yourself with amazing people—love, joy, and peace—and watch your smile eclipse the brightest light.

PORTLAND BABY PHOTOGRAPHER | ADAM

I love being a Portland baby photographer!  Because I get to cuddle, coo, dress up, and hold babies like Adam!  Adam was a perfect mixture of seriousness and smiles for his 3 month session at my studio.

I’m reading a book by Anne Lamott right now called, Grace (Eventually).  Its a collection of short essays on her thoughts on faith.  She starts one of her chapters with this paragraph that I think is so poignant for many mothers waiting to meet their new baby:

“By the time my child was born, I had seen two ultrasound images of him.  He looked like a very nice person: perfect, helpless, sleeping.  I love that in a baby.  I thought about him every few minutes during my pregnancy, talked to him, imagined our conversations as he grew, and lived for his arrival.”

New mothers filled with so much wondering.  Wondering what their baby will be like, what they will look like.  At 3 months old their little personalities are just starting to show.  Things are juuuuust starting to click.  He likes that.  She doesn’t like this.  I get him to sleep like this.  Now you are busy learning who your baby is.

His mama said that Adam is super laid back and is always smiling.  I hope these photographs are true to the sweet boy that she is getting to know.
