Capturing the Journey: Maternity Photo Session at Columbia River Gorge

Welcoming a new baby into the world is a special and sacred season in one’s life and especially when it is your first child! I had the privilege of documenting such a precious moment for a beautiful couple expecting their first child amidst the breathtaking backdrop of the Columbia River Gorge near Portland, Oregon.

I love how maternity sessions have this timeless quality to them. Capturing the beauty of pregnancy in a natural and documentary style. There’s something about that warm, golden light that just adds to the feeling of anticipation and joy that comes with waiting for a new baby.

I feel so grateful to have been able to document such a special time in this couple’s life. It’s moments like these that remind me why I love what I do. And being able to do it in such a stunning location like the Columbia River Gorge just adds to the magic. 

I offer various packages and “bump to baby” bundles designed to cater to your needs while also saving you money. Don’t let any precious moment slip away. Inquire through my contact form to learn more about the packages and bundles that I offer.
