Pretty girls, pretty location, pretty set, amazing light… really does it get much better?

I want to show off some images from a shoot I did last week. The idea was originally from the ever so talented makeup artist Courtney Rogers, she wanted the shoot to be really romantic, sexy and fun. We wanted to show off her made beauty skills and  an amazing location for photos. We hooked in Danielle with Champagne NW event planner and got the ball rolling. We had a great time making this whole shoot happen, and it was SO fun to do.

First there was a bump, then there was a curly haired newborn, then a toddler full of personality. Another year then a he was sweet faced little dude of 2 years, and now there is not only a big boy of 3, but another bump!  This little family of 3 is about to be a family of 4! I can not tell you how freaking excited I am to meet Jaxon’s little sister in a few months! The whole family was darling as usual, I really have the best clients in the entire world. We met up at one of my favorite local state parks and ran around as usual. Jaxon is sweet, kind and as adorable as ever. I could eat him up, his little sister has allot of cuteness to live up to!


So I will stop rambling. Here are a few of my favorites from our session:


Julie & Vince thanks again for coming up to see me! I just adore you guys. I will see you in Corvallis soon to meet that little lady!

    Julie - Oh Emily! After years of working with you (I can’t it’s been years), you still manage to outdo yourself! These are awesome!! You always seem to capture Jaxon’s personality perfectly and that is priceless. Your work always makes me teary-eyed! We can’t wait to see you again in June!

    baby photographer newberg oregon | oregon wedding & baby photographer emily g photography - […] cant even remember how many times i have photographed this family. There were a couple of maternity sessions, 2 newborn sessions, a couple 6 months sessions and now we are on to our second 1 year session. […]


As I have said in the past, I love the wedding inspiration site Style Unveiled! They do great work, and feature some beautiful images. I was honored when they asked to feature one of my most recent shoots. You can check out the feature here.

This session was a very collaborative effort. I was lucky to work with some of Portland’s best vendors, we had a great time, and made some fun images.

    Jen Hecht - Nice job, lovely!


It is a small, small world. When Dani emailed me about newborn photos for her brand new baby boy just days after he was born I jumped at the chance to meet the new little guy. It is so important to capture little ones with in the first few days of life. it was not until I got to the home Dani and I realized we actually knew each other from our long ago collage days! It is a small world for sure. I had a great time capturing this adorable family. Wyatt was so good for me, even though his adorable big brother Owen almost stole the show with his cuteness. This family was so sweet, and great in front of the camera.

Here are a few of my favorites so far:

Dani and family  for having me out to meet the family. I had a great time hanging with you all. It was my pleasure to capture your little man and the whole family.:)As new clients I would also love to break out a comment challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this blog post I will throw in a set of cute little brag  books! Perfect for showing off an oh so beloved family and cute little guy.:)
