Amanda is a good friend and great photographer. Her business is A.R.T. Photography. It made my day (and also made me a bit nervous) when she asked me to document the awesomeness that is her 3 littles. I had such a great time doing their mom & kids session! Thanks, Amanda! I always have fun with you and this day was no exception!
Although my focus is on documenting wedding stories through artistic photojournalism, I love portraits that show an intimate or loving moment shared by the couple. This was taken at Laurelhurst Park in Portland, always a lovely place for photos! (And that dress was just stunning, one of my favorites ever!)

There’s something really special about seeing first time parents with their brand new baby. I had a great time with Georgia & her parents. I love newborn sessions and snuggling brand new babies. Georgia’s newborn session was SO much fun and I know her parents are having a blast with their new roles as Mom & Dad.
Love my First Year Milestone Session Planners and it’s hard to believe this cherub is over halfway done with his first year! Somehow he came in for his 6 Month Milestone Session even more handsome than before! Absolutely LOVE this little ham!
The unique lighting at Urban Studio Events is always a fun challenge. Katie and Daniel celebrated with their family and friends here in Portland after their Mexico wedding ceremony.
We also got to spend just a few minutes outside in the cold December evening. I love photographing downtown at night when all of the trees are lit up! Its just extra romantic, don’t you think?
Maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but when we met up for Juliet’s maternity and family portraits, we had so much fun with little Calder and watching him laugh and laugh and laugh! I love lifestyle family photography and capturing families sharing joyful moments together like this one!
In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I hosted some short Valentine’s themed photo sessions for kids (because Valentine’s Day is an awesome, candy-filled, drama-free holiday when you’re in grade school). Nora brought her bestie (her lamb) to join her for her photo session, successfully making my day!
Sunny days, purple flowers, elegant palaces, and props, and dates, and so much more! William and Tran had so many ideas for their fantastical pre-wedding portraits, and we were able to get them all! Much thanks to Cannon Beach’s sunny weather, and the Governor Hotel for hosting us!
This lovely wedding took place in Cathedral Park under the incredible St. John’s Bridge in the fall a couple of years back. Since I never got a chance to blog it, I figured now might be a good time to share because it’s wedding planning season and lots of couples are looking for great locations. Did you know that there are more than 180 Portland parks that you can rent out as wedding and reception locations? Check out the Jenna Saint Martin Photo blog for more!
Oh little Willow made it nearly impossible not to smile all 2 hours of her Newborn Session, my face was actually even a little sore from hit. At least half of her gallery has smiling shots, including posing with big sisters, mama, daddy and plenty on her own too! It’s a good thing it was already about her or she would have stollen the show!
Engagement season has been in full swing and couples excited to announce their wedding date to the world are braving the chilly and rainy winter to take engagement photos that will accompany their save the dates! Lia and Trevor wanted a very Portland themed engagement session complete with an abandoned stone building, an accordion, their adorable pup, and a trip to where it all began: Mississippi Pizza.
