Ann Marshall

I'm a serious shoe addict who never skips her morning coffee - two cups in my favorite mug, of course. I have so very many kids so documenting these precious little years on your journey to motherhood is my absolute joy. I want to make sure you have beautiful artwork to look back on as your family grows, because it goes so fast!  When I look back on my own kids' 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 boosters an annual flu, 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 clean style ensures your baby and family are the focus of our sessions. I'd love to hear from you and meet your 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! Sienna and Lilah, the older two, play soccer and are on swim team so I get to watch them do some pretty fun stuff from the sidelines!

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. That's one of the springs over there. We drove in at sunset and it was AMAZING!  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 but it will be worth it!"

I grew up with chickens, ducks, dogs, cats, and rabbits. Now that I live in the suburbs, all I have are these cats, haha! But I love having animals so much. The kids love them too. Sienna named these brothers after her two favorite presidents, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. Bonus, they don't take much work from our neighbors when we go on a camping trip or out of town for a few days!

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!

My Favorite Things

"Phenomenal photography skills and highly specialized in working with infants. Ann surpassed my expectations as both an exceptional photographer and her ability to work with infants. She captured the best moments of him glowing and delivered stunning artwork. As a professional, Ann was highly responsive and delivered as promised on timelines and details. I cannot say enough good things about my experience and will absolutely hire Ann again in the future."


“I can’t say enough good things about our experience with Ann! She takes gorgeous photos, is great at communicating, provided a wonderful photoshoot experience, and is fun to be around. Extra bonus for having hair and makeup provided as part of the package - what a treat!"


"You won’t know which ones to put up, since they are all so beautiful. During my newborn photo shoot, as she was capturing photos of my newborn son and toddler daughter, I started to cry. It wasn’t those crazy pp hormones, but instead It was me knowing how special these photos were going to be… and sure enough I was right… I will treasure them forever. If you do any photos, make sure you do newborn session. "


"I wanted to capture the fleeting beauty of our newborn time but felt like a hot mess. My body felt like a stranger after delivery and my brain was FRIED. I'm so glad I chose Ann Marshall to capture the best part of welcoming my child. Ann is amazing with babies, totally non judgemental, and had thought of everything for me. She took my sleep-deprived lump of a self and turned it into something magical. This sounds like a cheesy ad but seriously...using Ann was such a weight off my shoulders. She takes health and safety seriously and her work speaks for itself."


"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 AMAZING!! My newborn session was flawless.  All her props, outfits and wraps were gorgeous. I never felt rushed and my baby was so comfortable with her the whole time. As a new mom, letting a stranger hold and pose your newborn can be awkward, but I never felt that way. You can tell this is a passion and that she loves what she does. I'm so glad she was able to capture this moment of my baby's life for me. The hardest part was waiting to see the results!!!"


“I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Ann. She made the whole experience of my newborn's photos easy, fun, and low stress (which this very tired new mom really appreciates!). It was wonderful that she was able to come to our home and the photos are just adorable. We will cherish these sweet prints forever.”
