If you’ve happened upon this page, it’s likely by pure chance. I am not one to toot my horn, or at least I’m cautious of becoming one. However, this is where I announce my ‘winnings’.

Portland newborn photography session, studio and in-home session, by Earthdarling Portraits
What an incredible year 2016 was! We left our irreplaceable clients on the East Coast, and traveled across the country to start anew. While it’s been a lesson in temperance, I am over the moon about living here in the Portland area, and have really enjoyed building new relationships with my clients. The compilation slideshow below, puts all my favorites together from the last year. There is lots of love here. It’s a beautiful life!
It was a beautiful Portland winter day (meaning there was actually a bit of sunshine), and I had the pleasure of working with this super sweet family of three.

My clients arrived in my temporary studio space on SE Morrison Street, which is a bit rough around the edges compared to my swank 1,400 sq. foot studio on the East Coast. Momma, although tired, arrived along with not only her littlest one, but baby girl’s big brother too, who is two, and super adorable (bonus!!). We rode up the utility elevator, which is always…
For my first session in Portland, in this cool temporary space, I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter, cuter, little kiddo to break it in. She and her mama were wonderful, and we had so much fun! After sorting through and choosing her perfect setup, we didn’t need to do much, as she kept me on my toes, and mama too! She was fully of smiles, and just lit up the room. We even got a visit from some nice photographer neighbors in the studio space, who helped us to get that inquisitive look at the end of the session….
