portland, oregon newborn photographer

Hi! I'm Katie, I’m here to photograph your baby’s pure perfection in such a way that you never forget things like their warm curly body, shoulder peach fuzz and tiny toes.

No fluff, no gimmicks, no props, no heavy editing. Simply your beautiful baby.

let's capture it in my natural, baby-led, and minimal style

Your newborn is a work of art

I'm glad you've stumbled into my little corner of the internet while looking for a Portland newborn photographer.

Most days you can find me with my hair in a messy bun, running to and fro keeping my four kiddos happy, photographing babies, editing, and wearing all the hats that keep things running smoothly.

I’m a mama via adoption and remarriage. So all together we’ve got a sixth grader, two 4th graders, and a 2nd grader running the roost.

"I have the greatest newborn photos of my son now!"

I have the greatest newborn photos of my son now! I love how she captured his personality, specifically - his little smirk.

I loved the whole experience, it wasn’t stressful at all. We didn’t feel rushed or uncomfortable, and she was so gentle with my son. I will defiantly be coming back for future family photos and hopefully another newborn shoot in the future!
