Uniquely Wise Photography

My organic, simplistic, and fun style of photography allows me to capture your special moments. Whether it is your maternity glow, the first few days with your newborn, your children’s milestones, family love, or furry pets, your photographs will be Unique to you.

I run a client-friendly and service-oriented business. Photoshoots happen on-location, in my studio located in NW Portland, or in the comfort of your home. My focus is to work with you to customize your photo session, so you feel comfortable throughout the experience in order to bring out your natural beauty.

There’s nothing better to me as a photographer than helping you preserve your forever moments; it’s always been important to me.  It has allowed me to turn a personal passion into a profession that I love.

Pine and Honey Photography

What I believe sets me apart from other photographers isn’t necessarily my gear, or ability to use photoshop, but the fact that I want to capture something unique about you. There are so many opportunities to take pictures with our own phones or cameras at home, but not many opportunities to get a portrait that artfully captures the magic of that specific time of your life.

I am a natural light photographer and also spend time carefully editing images to enhance the emotion that was caught in the image. The details are what set me apart. My heart goes into every photograph. I’d love to share that with you.

Is it time for you to get in the frame?

Maybe you are uncomfortable when you see a picture of yourself or you don’t feel as youthful or vibrant as you once did.  As a mom and a photographer, there is something I hope we as woman can learn: we are beautiful just as we are right in this moment.

Our kids see our beauty, and you know what?  They will need to see you in the photographs of their life.  They will want to remember you just the way you are right now… so it’s time.  No more doubt or procrastinating… It’s time to get you in the frame.

Our time together will be free flowing and natural with my ultimate goal being to capture the essence and spirit of your family.

I look forward to connecting with you.
