Grady C., 3 weeks old | Portland Newborn Baby Photographer

Baby Grady is a big healthy boy at 10+ pounds in his fourth week of life!  He was very alert and strong throughout our session, holding his head up and looking right at me and the camera & lights and I even caught some baby smiles, what a cutie.  He is much loved by mom and dad and big brother Cole, who turns three in January.  These guys just relocated from the Bay Area to take advantage of all that Portland has to offer families!  Congrats 🙂

Newborn Baby Portrait: Hogue/Fife Family

Welcome baby Oona Bloom!

I recently got a Lensbaby Composer Pro and was able to test it out on a family that has a gorgeous brand new baby.  I  love the dream-like quality of the group photo and how sweet they look together.  What I learned though is that f/4 on a Lensbaby is a little blurry if you’re trying to capture a toddler in action!  I had to switch lenses to get some good pics of this (almost) 3-year-old. He was looking my way and smiling non-stop… makes my job super easy!  So many great shots of him in action.  Also can you believe that at just under 3 years old he is already riding a bike?  Also above is a shot of newborn baby Oona, just 2 1/2 weeks old.  So perfect.


It was really fun shooting this family; I have another brand new baby to photograph on Monday!  Makes me realize how BIG Jonah is and how far I’ve come as a mom.  Love love love babies!!!
