fully customizable sessions in my nw pORTLAND Studio
Studio baby milestone photography sessions allow your baby's session to be fully customized! If you like staying out of the rain and heat, we can schedule these around your little one's naps during the day. We can come up with a plan to celebrate their sitter, first, second, third birthday!
Elijah's turning one!
Those curls and that smile! Elijah had so much fun at his first birthday cake smash photo session! He smashed his cake, crawled all over, got to take a bunch of pictures with balloons, and left thoroughly ready to take an epic nap after his fun morning!

Eliza is one!
Eliza's mom wanted to celebrate her first trip around the sun with a gorgeous gold and green photoshoot cake smash! Eliza had so much fun with her cake while mom, dad, and sister sat back and watched these fun happen! Of course, we had to get some sibling portraits at the end too!

Lincoln is one!
Lincoln's mom wanted a classic cake smash set for her sweet baby boy. I absolutely loved how his session turned out! Those eyes are so sweet and he had so much fun having everyone celebrate him turning one! And of course, we had to get some with mom too!

1. Say Hello
2. Let's make it official
If we are an awesome fit and you're ready to get on my calendar - let's make it all official! I will send you over the agreement and invoice for your $200 retainer. I will also send over a questionnaire to learn about your family so I can design the perfect session for you. You will let me know whether you would like your session in my indoor Beaverton commercial studio, or outdoors. Most families opt to do an indoor cake smash, and then head out to a local park for family pictures all together!
3. Let's plan this
I will work with you to pick outfits from my client closet, or point you in the direction of some adorable boutiques online that I know photograph well. I will walk you through how to prepare your child for their session to ensure the most smiles and giggles. We will plan around your little one's naptimes so we don't have any sleepy babies! You will have me to help with everything!
4. The big day
The day has come and it's session time. You will show up with your child and I will interact with them while you hang back and watch the cuteness unfold. I will go through my workflow to get a variety of looks during the session. If it's a cake smash, we will get classic portraits before you do an outfit swap and dig in to the cake! We will play music, make some animal noises to get smiles, and just have a great time! If you've opted to do some outdoor family pictures after, we will end the session at a local park. Then it's less than a week wait until your proofing gallery is in your inbox!
5. your photographs
Within a week, you will receive an email with your online gallery reveal. You will pick your favorites, then I will get to work on editing them to perfection! Your final images will be done within a week, and you can place your order for archival quality heirloom prints and wall art that will ship directly to you. Lets get those adorable pictures into your hands, not just on your hard drive! The last step is just to enjoy your portraits for years to come!

“Ann is incredible! Not only was she warm and engaging--which always results in better photos because the kiddos are comfortable--but her lighting, timing, and prop setup skills are all excellent. We have wonderful milestone photos of our youngest and precious pictures that capture the relationship between our two kids together. I'd recommend her in a heartbeat."
“Ann was an absolute delight to work with! From her studio space, to her wardrobe options, to the finished product-- my husband and I were so impressed with her work and professionalism. Ann made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and even had our 16 month old "blowing" her kisses goodbye by the end of our session! She was also great at communicating throughout the proofing and editing process. Her work is proudly hanging on the walls of our home and we hope to work with her again in the future!"
“5 stars isn't enough for Ann! She worked with me months in advance to make sure my son's milestone session would be perfect... And it turned out better than I could have imagined! I've found the perfect family photographer in Ann!!"
"Wow wow wow! Where do I begin? I was very interested in doing a milestone photoshoot as something special to celebrate 1 year with my pandemic baby. I reached out to another professional photographer I previously worked with for a referral because I was specifically looking for milestone photography. I was so lucky she recommended Ann! She is incredibly responsive, covid-concious, and really good at engaging my daughter when taking photos. She is so creative and even special rented a vintage high chair and made a balloon garland to achieve a specific look for our shoot! She knew exactly what I was looking for and advised me on how to dress my baby and offered items from her client closet as well. The photos are so dreamy and everyone who saw them immediately asked who our photographer was! Would recommend and would use again! Thank you, Ann Marshall Photography!!"
“I cannot say enough wonderful things about Ann. She took the most adorable 1/2 birthday pictures of my 6 month old daughter. Ann is so great at communication and helped make my picture dreams come true. I gave her a very vague idea of the style I wanted for my pictures, and its like she read my mind- she created a beautiful and timeless set. She provided the most adorable options for clothing and gave us a variety of different shots and props. She even helped me pick the best cake to use, I do not think I would have ended up this happy with a different photographer. During the pictures she was beyond fabulous at making me and my baby comfortable and happy. Thank you so much for giving me a true family heirloom and timeless pictures of my sweet baby!"
"We had such a great time taking pictures with Ann! She made sure we were all comfortable, especially our little one, and made the day so enjoyable! The pictures turned out amazing, I would highly recommend Ann for any family/baby pictures (:"
"Ann is a pleasure to work with and makes sure the client gets the pics they love. She took pics of my kiddo as a newborn and at age 2 and was great! I highly recommend her."
