Sometimes Portland can start to feel dreary and make you yearn for warm, sunny, beach days. Throw in a fun impromptu elopement and you have a dream vacation! This shoot was inspired by the idea of escaping the rainy and cold winter, running off to a sunny beach, and eloping with the person you love more than anything. Check out the rest of this beach elopement inspiration on Brittany Lauren Photography’s blog!
I get to meet and photograph this sweet couple’s baby today! Baby Orion arrived early and is doing a great job of introducing his parents to parenthood. I had such a great time with them at their maternity photo shoot. They’re such a fun couple. I can’t wait to meet their son!

Last month I hosted a Vintage Valentine’s Boudoir marathon and it was so much fun! I love doing something a little different now and then. The wonderful Tracy Amos, owner of Classic Vintage Rentals loaned me some beautiful furniture for the week! I wish I could have all of this gorgeous antique furniture in my studio all the time! It was so nice to “freshen” up the place for a little while. Hair and makeup was done by the talented Bri Ellis, owner of Portland Makeup and Hair. Check out the entire Vintage Boudoir Photoshoot here.
This lovely couple decided they wanted to have their engagement session on Valentine’s Day at the romantic Oregon Gardens in Silverton, and it didn’t disappoint! Late winter at the Oregon Gardens might not be super colorful, bit it’s still extremely beautiful! After their session a romantic Valentine’s date was definitely in order for these two.

When your kids are all grown what will they remember about the average Saturday morning spent at home? If you invest in honest and authentic storytelling photography they will have photographs so to help them remember just what it felt like to have their tiny hands encompassed in yours as you chop rosemary together to bake delicious scones. Photographs to remember all the little things, because, as it turns out, the little things are what matters most. See the rest of this Portland storytelling photography session and then contact Lacey Monroe to set up your own documentary photo session.

My favorite way to photograph newborns is in the comfort of your home. I love doing it this way so i can capture all the details that were put into your baby’s nursery, maybe even capture a few photos with the family dog or even capture the older sibling throwing a tantrum. You know, those real life moments.
