THE Process

My clients often approach me initially maternity sessions, and I'm lucky enough to follow their stories for years to come. My art is meant to evoke emotion and stir your soul. It's meant to be nostalgic and unique. If my creative style speaks to you, let's take the next step and co-create the perfect session. Visit here to see my pricing and packages.

Once we're committed to each other, I'll send you a detailed client guide. We'll choose the perfect wild space in or near Portland, the Columbia River Gorge, the mountains, or the Oregon coast to meet, and I'll help you style your session from beginning to end. All I ask is on the day of our session you show up ready to play, explore, and to be you. Come only with the expectation of being together in your perfectly imperfect way. I'll do the rest.

Client Words


Our photos are so beautiful. They make me cry every time I see them.




These photos mean so much to me. The more I look at them, the more symbolic of our lives they become. Deb really saw us.

The whitlock family



I was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was pregnant with him, and could never get maternity photos. I didn't want to miss out this time. Deb captured the sweetest images of us, and I will treasure them forever.

The Davis Family



I can't even find words to express how grateful I am for these beautifully captured photos and experiences.
