Now Booking Fall 2023

Family Photographer based in Portland Oregon.


hey there

i'm deb.

And I'm a Portland family and maternity photographer. I'm so happy you're here. I'm a professional storyteller, and my photos are your love notes and your stories. From maternity photographs, to newborns and all the family moments that happen in the years to come, I create meaningful images not just for my people, but with my people.


I want to create an experience together. A place where you can let down your guard and simply be together. Whatever adventure we embark on, it deserves to be honored and remembered for years to come. Tell me your story and let's create something beautiful together.


Let me capture your wild. And your very soul. The tiny, fleeting moments...those playful smiles... the tears of sadness...the twirls and hugs and sword fights. Let me capture your heart. And imperfection.


After is not about the things you see, it's all about the way you see them. Learn more about me right on over here .

THE Process

Couple canoodling in the wildflowers

Peruse my art and style. Am I your photographer? My clients often approach me for 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 co create the perfect session. Visit here to see my pricing and packages. Two ways to get started: you can email me or BOOK ONLINE .

Once you commit to a session you'll receive a detailed client guide. We will choose the perfect wild space in or near Portland, the Columbia River Gorge, mountains or the sea to meet, and I'll help you style your session from beginning to end. All I ask is on the day of our session is you show up ready to snuggle, 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.
