Portland, or photographer


Established 2011


"...When we are together, we have everything...."






Hello! My name is Jamie and I am a Portland, Oregon based family photographer. To me, photographing your family is more like poetry than a simple snap of the shutter... I love to see the rhythm and beauty of your relationships unfold and that is what I hope to capture.




The best family photos happen when you are relaxed and enjoying life together. I have a laid back approach that allows for play, rest and natural, relaxed photographs.





I have cultivated an expert approach in helping you look your best by using encouragement and verbal direction. Please read my reviews to see how comfortable women feel in front of my lens!





I am a film photographer, which means for a portion of your session I use an old school camera complete with film loading. With families I also use digital photography.




The family session featured above was photographed at Cannon Beach, Oregon... a destination that showcases the freedom and carefree cadence of childhood. The Oregon coast is a beautiful, neutral backdrop that lends itself to gorgeous imagery!






Hello and Welcome



My name is Jamie and I'm a wife, mama, photographer and creative.


Most dear to my heart: my family, my faith and the joy of creating.


My number one goal for my photography clients is that they feel comfortable, beautiful and at ease during their photo session.

I have spent the last decade becoming an expert at "natural posing" which means you and your loved ones will feel comfortable AND confident in front of my camera.


You can learn more about my approach and my Portland based photography business here.


Are you a mama, a passionate learner, and a health enthusiast like me?

Kind words and Reviews....



“Jamie- I have no words. These photos are amazing and so much more than I hoped for! I really have


no words. These are by far our most treasured pictures (plus the video that makes me cry every time).


I absolutely adore them and I can say without a doubt they are my most favorite pictures


we've taken as a family (which is saying a lot as I continue to try to accept this postpartum body of mine).


Thank you for capturing our fun-loving energy, our hearts, our love, the ever-loved frog binky (haha)


and of course, our sweet dog Artemis (Bert). I appreciate how comfortable you made us feel and


how you didn't force the typical posed pictures. You worked so well with our fussy babe toward the


end of the shoot and you'd ever know it from the pictures.


I cannot tell you how treasured these are and I wish you would move to Montana so we could get more


pictures done from you! Thank you a million times over for this gift.”
