Portland Family Photography

Love is the glue that holds a family together

-Bangambiki Habyarimana

I love photographing families. I enjoy capturing the connections, personality, love, and interesting moments that happens within a family. My sessions involve a mix of candid and posed images. We’ll play and wander around for up to two hours–depending on kids’ needs of course.

When you decide you are ready for a session, email me through the contact form. I’ll email you back and then we’ll chat on the phone. I’ll ask you about your family, your ideas for your session (location, occasion, etc), your plans for your photos (do you want to add to your wall gallery, or create an album?), and we’ll tentatively schedule a day if we can. I’ll send you a quote with a retainer, contract + model release and then it will be official!

PRICING

Session Fee of $250 includes:

Up to 2 hours shooting time of one nuclear family of up to six people (additional fee for multiple-generation/extended family sessions)

One complimentary digital image OR 8×10 mounted print 

I offer collections which include wall art, gift prints, and digital images, as well as a la carte items. Collection prices start at $649. You’ll select your collection during the ordering session, about two weeks after the photo session.

Since the weather was iffy, we decided to try a new (for me) indoor location. Becca, Cort, and Esther met downtown at the Hotel Monaco. They have this great, colorful lobby that's open to the public. I loved the rich, bold colors and patterns! (Do you see the purple...
