I have a lot of fond memories of my mother growing up, but I have always wished I had more photos of her to help remember those special moments. My mom was always the one behind the camera taking the pictures or too self-conscious to be in front of the camera with us. (Maybe you too can relate?)
That’s why I believe the legacy of family photos are so important - to capture the real, the raw, the messy and authentic version of you and your whole family - moms included - so you can relive and cherish those memories for years to come.
As your Portland newborn photographer. I can’t wait to create a joyful and relaxing photo experience for you and your family. Let's get to know each other more! > Read My Story
Hi! I'm Jaime!

She was so patient with our toddler.
... and made him feel so comfortable with her taking his picture. After just giving birth and being exhausted, I wanted an easy & laid back environment for this shoot and she totally delivered! She is so kind, professional, easy going and fantastic to work with. Our pictures turned out amazing and we will cherish them for a lifetime!"

Such a positive experience every time!
Jaime did our maternity and newborn pictures for both of my kiddos - and we had such a positive experience every time. She's so bubbly and fun, making the whole session relaxing and enjoyable. She has great ideas for both posed and non-posed pictures and also is more than happy to accommodate any specific ideas you may have.
The pictures all four times turned out amazing! We highly recommend her to anyone for their photography needs!
Three amazing sessions with Jaime...
We have had three amazing sessions with Jaime. Our maternity photos, newborn photos, and family photos!
We have a big family with lots of energy, and Jaime handled our sessions with such patience and kindness!
I can't wait to have more photos taken with her!
...Remember this special time as new parents.
This season is full of so many emotions and can look different for every family. As a Portland newborn photographer, I have been honored to serve many families with a simple approach to documenting this incredibly special time.

What if we have to reschedule our photo shoot?
If you or your kids are sick, I would much rather photograph you when you are all feeling great! Rescheduling is ok if someone is sick or an emergency arises.
What if my kids won't cooperate and my newborn is fussy?
I don't expect kids to "behave" during your session. I encourage running, playing, laughing, and getting genuine smiles from everyone. I never ask your kids to do anything they don't feel comfortable doing. Your newborn can be in your arms the entire time if needed.
Where should we have our newborn photos taken?
For newborn sessions, they will take place in the comfort of your home.
How long does it take to receive our photos?
About 2-3 weeks.
How long are your newborn photos shoots?
Approximately 2 hours. This time allows for feedings, diaper changes, or anything else you need during your session. They are never rushed and very relaxed.
As your Portland newborn photographer, I want you to feel like your session with me is like having a friend you can now trust with your newborn photos. No posing, nothing awkward, just you + your family being yourselves.
I can’t wait to hear from you!
