Maternity Photographer | Newborn Photographer | Child Photographer | Family Photographer

Vancouver, Washington | Portland Oregon


From maternity and newborn stages to milestones, the cake smash, and family sessions, I love being able to capture all the joy that this incredible (and incredibly brief) time in life holds.
In what some would consider an over-saturated market, I think you will find I bring talent and vision as unique as each little personality I capture.
Whether on location or in my home studio, I know a portrait is a keepsake for a lifetime and I am committed to making the experience enjoyable and peaceful for my clients.
Brienne is a class act. This isn’t a job, it’s a passion, something she has put hours and hours and hours into perfecting so her clients have the most incredible experience and end result. She spends time getting to know how who she works with, so she knows how to give it the personal touch. She’s on time, loyal, selfless and full of heart with everyone she comes across and every photo she touches. Knowing Brienne as our photographer for years has made her part of the family. Brienne is incredibly talented and you won’t be disappointed ?
