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 $300 retainer. I will also learn about your family so I can design the perfect session for you. Does baby have any allergies? What are your favorite colors or theme ideas that you want to use? This way I can have everything ready to take place at my studio located at 5201 SW Westgate Dr., #228, Portland, Oregon 97221. 

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 do those in the all white lifestyle portion of the studio. Then it's 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!

"Had a wonderful experience working with Ann for our daughter’s 1st bday cake smash photos. Ann has been speedy and clear in her communication from her response to my initial email, all the way through to providing the images. I sent some inspiration photos for the background and worked with Ann on the theme/colors - she has lots of examples as well.
The photos are wonderful - capturing our little one’s personality and even getting some darn good shots of us parents! I have a high standards to evaluate images and she exceeded them! Bonus that she had outfits for the kiddo…one less thing for this mama to have to worry about - which was so appreciated.
Hubs, kid and I showed up at her cute studio and we started with some family photos then on to kiddo photos and cake smash. Timing of the shoot was set up to be after our daughter’s first nap, at a time she’d be in the best spirits - yay! Highly recommend hiring Ann for any kid or family photos. She’ll be our go to photographer from now on."


“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!"


"Highly recommend Ann! We chose her to take cake smash photos for our child’s 1st birthday and she did such amazing job at capturing our little one’s personality. She was so professional and also very easy going! It’s clear how much she loves kids and what she does. Her passion really is what makes these photos so wonderful. I am so glad we chose her to do the photos. We ended up buying the full gallery because they were all just so good. ❤️"


“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!!"


"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 (:"


“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!"
