Ann Marshall

Personally, my family story started on a flight the day after Christmas. It was that day that I met a handsome man in the Marines. And long story short - we kinda liked each other so we made a whole bunch of cute babies and the rest is history. As a photographer in Hillsboro, and the greater Portland area, maternity and newborn portraits are my passion. I want to make sure you have beautiful artwork to look back on as your family grows, because it goes so fast! I know this because I'm currently watching four precious little kids grow up. When I look back on their baby pictures, I am right back in that time, with their little bodies, pjs, and burp cloths. Photography gives me a way to refresh my memory of all these precious times in my life, and I want to do that for other families.

Because I take your newborn's safety very seriously, I am fully immunized including now COVID, yay! I have received training on how to pose your baby safely, and completed safety mentorships. You can trust that your little one is in good hands for our session.

The images on your walls should commemorate the way you looked at your newborn baby and all the beauty and fierce love that comes with that. My minimalistic clean style ensures your baby, is the focus of our session, not props. I'd love to hear from you and meet your family! Let’s chat!

Your newborn & Growing family photographer

Hi, I'm Ann


'm Ann! Hi there!  I'm super excited that you are here, and I can't wait to get to know more about you and your growing family.



live a few different places. We always knew we wanted to get out to the Pacific Northwest. Living in Oregon with my kids is pretty much my dream come true. There are so many places to explore, food to eat, and activities around us. 

I have been doing photography for over a decade. What kid doesn't like looking through all their family's old pictures? Capturing memories like those for my family was my motivation for starting. Now I love to do the same for all other families. 

Livin' the the dream with my family

How could they not be at the top of my favorite things list?! Look at those adorable faces! They are certainly a lot of work but it is worth every second to get to watch them grow up! They are pretty good sports about getting their picture taken too, which is lucky for me!

My husband and I love to go all out for birthday parties! And with four kids we get the opportunity a lot.  Unicorn cake? Yep.  8 layer rainbow cake?  Why not. Fox cake?  Of course.  At this point we may be getting close to running out of ideas but it is so fun to come up with new, exciting ideas for them every year!

I absolutely adore traveling together! We have gotten to see so many cool places as a family. Yellowstone National Park will be a forever favorite. Even getting out to the Oregon Coast, to the Gorge, or camping are also such easy, great escapes from everyday life. My kids are pretty much experts at being driving passengers by now. "No, we aren't there yet" practically never has to be said, haha!

My Favorite Things

"Ann was fantastic from start to finish. Very professional and upfront with the pricing and what you would get with your session. Upon arrival she had the room set up, snacks for us and went out of her way to get as many shots with our son done as possible. She even went out of her way to make a theme request possible. The next day the photos were ready to preview. They turned out better than I had hoped and plan to use Ann for future kids and other photography opportunities. I can’t recommend Ann enough."


"Ann is the baby whisperer! I honestly don't know how she does it! She can soothe these babies expertly and the poses are so sweet! Ann also created two photo books for me (per my request) and when I saw the photos I cried. I'm always awe-struck at the quality of the photos and how she's able to capture these magical moments. I can't praise her enough for the professionalism and quality."


“I had a fantastic experience with Ann! We used her for our newborn photography session. She is great with communication and very helpful when discussing expectations and how to prepare a baby for a photoshoot. She took the photos in our home, which allowed for a few lifestyle family shots. All of the images are frame-worthy and I look forward to hiring her again for more family photos.”


"Ann does an amazing job! Her photos are always beautiful and she is easy to talk to and puts everyone at ease."
