How much are you able to invest in the session? How far do you have to travel? All of these questions are important. But at the end of the day, there is one thing that you can’t ignore – without this your pictures will not come out how you want them to. Find out more about getting great pictures of your family

I think when most people hear the word “Boudoir” they automatically think big hair, Victoria’s secret bombshell type shoot. Honestly, I like to refer to my “boudoir” sessions as intimate portraiture sessions because I think what we will capture is different than what most people associate with traditional boudoir. All women are incredible and I love photographing them in a soft and natural way that showcases their loveliness and just how amazing they are.  To see more from this feminine boudoir session and get an idea of the types of images that are possible head on over to Brittany Lauren Photography’s blog today!

Abernathy Center Wedding Photographer-2102 Although there were a million things I loved about this day, my favorite part of  Nicole & Jake’s Breakfast Wedding was that Nicole & Jake got engaged early on in their college years. They knew from the beginning that they wanted to get married, but patiently waited for their perfect moment to do so. You could see all of the care, planning, and anticipation that went into their wedding day everywhere you looked. PERFECT first chapter for their marriage!


Ecola State Park is a very special place for Hannah + Patrick. They frequently hike and camp around the area together and share so many fond memories from their adventures. So this location was the obvious choice for their engagement session!

Portland Engagement Photography

I found out that somebody has a habit of sneaking into the soaking pool at Edgefield… I won’t say who, but it gave me the idea to do our whole shoot there and then end in the soaking pool with the entire family. I love it because its so personal and perfect for these two. They live just a couple of miles from Edgefield and spend a lot of time hanging out there with their kids. See their entire engagement session/family photoshoot on the blog!

This family session was the perfect inspiration for a spring family photo shoot. The color palette was perfect, their outfits coordinated flawlessly, and the whimsical indoor tent was so much fun! Be sure to check out the rest of this spring family session over at Brittany Lauren Photography’s blog to get more ideas and inspiration for your own spring or summer photo shoot!

Salem Mission Mill Museum Wedding Photographer-604 I LOVED Joe & Miranda’s Valentine’s Day Breakfast Tea Party Wedding! Very few people have special Valentine’s Day AM plans; now these two have a lifelong, cheese-free tradition that they can celebrate each year – and so do their loved ones!
But the wedding awesomeness didn’t stop there. Miranda’s dress! OMG! Her handmade bouquet, the lovely cups and saucers for their tea brunch – sigh. I LOVED it all.
Congratulations on a beautiful beginning, Miranda & Joe! You guys are off to a great start to your happily ever after!


Spring is here on the Oregon Coast! It’s a beautiful time of year to travel to the beach for an engagement session (or any type of portrait session for that matter!). These two travelled all the way from Missouri to get their photos taken on the Oregon Coast before traveling on a cross country adventure to return home. It was certainly a romantic night to remember for them and a gorgeous sunset to boot!

Why get storytelling family photo session?

Because they are only little for so long.

Soon enough they won’t need your help getting dressed. They will be able to put on their own socks and do their own hair.

Soon enough all the routines that are a part of your everyday will change. Then you will only have your memories of when they were so young.


Unless you invest now in beautiful and artistic family photography. Contact Lacey Monroe to schedule your storytelling family photography session.


Sometimes keeping your wedding day small is the way to go. For these two they had me meet up on a Friday afternoon at the Multnomah County Courthouse in Downtown Portland to capture their wedding day.  Afterwards we shot some photos at Eastbank Esplanade and Mt. Tabor Park.

Contact Jen Gardner Photography if you are interested in finding out more about shooting your Courthouse Wedding.


When I agree to photograph a family, my goal is to go in and win their trust. As a friend and participant in the play date, I am able to capture true, intimate moments that wouldn’t necessarily be available during a traditional photo session.

This image melts my heart every time, and when the family looks back at it many years down the road, they will be able to see life as it really was. They will be able to say, “Those boys could be so sweet with each other when nobody was watching. Wasn’t it beautiful?”
