One of the things that I love about being a wedding and newborn photographer is that I get to build personal relationships with my clients as I get to know them. I photographed Marcus and Ericka's wedding back in 2015 and just recently they welcomed their baby boy, Maddux into the world. I was absolutely delighted when they called to tell me about the arrival of their son and I was honored that they asked me to capture Maddux's newborn pictures.

Maddux came to see me for his baby pictures when he was about 2 months old. Maddux was born prematurely and although he was already a few months old, he was still very much like a little newborn. While I prefer to photograph babies at 5-14 days, there are sometimes circumstances that prevent families from coming to see me in the first few weeks of life. I will gladly photograph babies at any age and I like to remind parents that premies are often still much like a newborn, even at a few months old.

We started Maddux's newborn session with family pictures against a cream/neutral colored studio backdrop. I love the soft neutral colors that Ericka and Marcus choose for these pictures. The cream and brown clothing really looks great against a solid, neutral backdrop and draws the focus onto their sweet baby, Maddux. Sometimes the parent portion is my favorite part of the session as you get to see how truly proud and happy the new parents are to be holding their sweet little newborn.

After we finished family pictures, I photographed just Maddux on the beanbag. I used a cream colored fabric to match the backdrop that we used for family pictures. I was able to capture a few pictures of Maddux sleeping on the beanbag before he woke up hungry and needed to eat. At the studio, newborn sessions are always on the baby's schedule so as soon as a baby shows any signs of being hungry, we take a break to feed.  

Once Maddux was fed and sleepy again, we moved on to some pictures using my studio reclaimed wood wall. Marcus has a huge collection of antlers that he's found in the forrest near their house in the White Salmon area. The family brought these antlers and asked me to incorporate them into the session (some of these antlers were also used at Marcus & Ericka's wedding in 2015). I love when clients bring something sentimental that they'd like incorporated into the session. The antlers looked so great against my studio floor and I also used some greenery that I picked up that morning from Tammy's Floral to accent the set-up. I love how this floor set-up turned out with my posing props and the family's antlers.

We finished Maddux's newborn photos on the bean bag with a flokati rug. I swaddled Maddux in a grey scarf and then laid him down on the bean bag. I love how his little fingers stick out of the swaddle. I also used this opportunity to capture some up-close detail shots of Maddux's little hands, feet, mouth, nose, eyes, etc. Detail images of a baby are a perfect addition to a photo album to showcase your newborn session.

This was such a fun session to plan and photograph. Take a peak at Maddux's darling baby pictures captured by Gorge-Us Photography:

Baby Boy Infant Portrait Session http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2018/5/baby-boy-infant-portrait-session-lr Welcome Lincoln!

I had the opportunity to photograph sweet baby Lincoln at under two weeks old. I love photographing newborns in the first 5-14 days of life when babies are still so sleepy and love being curled up. We decided to start Lincoln's infant photos on the bean bag in my Hood River based photography studio. I love starting sessions on a bean bag where it's nice and warm and I can easily wrap the baby for cute and adorable baby pictures! I visit with parents before the session during a pre-consultation about the colors in their home and then when they arrive, I have a selection of studio props and blankets that they can choose from. We decided to use a warm brown blanket on the bean bag to compliment the colors in this family's home. I love how little Lincoln just pops in the picture and stands out from the nice contrasting background.

After taking pictures on the bean bag, I moved sleepy little Lincoln over to my wooden reclaimed wood backdrop (this is always a studio favorite). We set up a little basket and placed sleeping Lincoln in the basket. Newborn safety is extremely important to me so at all times we had a spotter right next to the basket in case Lincoln woke up or started to stir. Lincoln slept so peacefully in the basket and I was able to pose his adorable little hands under his head for a few darling pictures on the wooden set-up.

We ended Lincoln's newborn pictures with family photos against a neutral colored studio backdrop to keep a consistent feel to all the images throughout the session. I absolutely love including parents in newborn pictures. Someday you (and your child) will love looking back on these memories of when your baby was so little and bundled up in your arms!

Here's a sneak peek at Lincoln's darling baby pictures:

Countryside Maternity Portrait Session http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2018/5/countryside-maternity-portrait-session Simply Stunning Countryside Maternity Portrait Session

Captured by Gorge-Us Photography | Hood River Based Newborn & Maternity Photographer

​"To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings." ~Anne Christian Buchanan

I absolutely love when expecting moms decided to have me capture maternity pictures for them to document their pregnancy. This is such an exciting time in one's life and such a momentous time to remember and cherish. 

Kristyn came to Gorge-Us Photography for her maternity pictures this past April. When we started planning her session we decided that a country setting near Hood River would be the ideal location for her maternity portrait session. We ended up deciding on the Tin Roof Barn (located in Husum, WA) for Kristyn's maternity session. The owners of Tin Roof were so gracious in opening up their space to us for this evening photo shoot.

For maternity gowns, Kristyn choose a dark blue knit dress along with a black chiffon maternity dress, both from Gorge-Us Photography's selection of maternity gowns. I offer a large selection of maternity gowns for my clients to choose from. When a client comes in for their initial consultation, we spend time talking about where we'll do maternity pictures and then trying on different gowns that will compliment both the expecting mama along with the setting.

Next, I reached out to Blaire at Trellis Fresh Flowers & Gifts in White Salmon, WA and told her that I needed a floral crown to compliment the blue maternity gown. WOW, all I can say is that the floral crown was absolutely stunning and the crown was the perfect finishing touch for these images.

Kristyn also made an appointment to have her hair and make-up professionally done by Patricia at Gorge Brides. Having hair and make-up professionally done prior to a photo shoot is always a great idea and definitely makes a huge difference in the final photos. Kristyn is a glowing mama-to-be and her professional hair and make-up made her natural beauty absolutely pop on camera. 

I am so excited with how Kristyn's maternity pictures turned out. Take a peek below at Kristyn's gorgeous countryside maternity photo shoot!

 

If you or someone you know is expecting a baby, I'd love to visit with you about being your maternity and newborn photographer. I've been photographing expecting moms and babies since 2011 and I have a full-service newborn portrait studio located conveniently in Hood River, Oregon.

Woodland Themed 1st Birthday Cake Smash http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2018/4/woodland-themed-1st-birthday-cake-smash42018 Woodland Themed 1st Birthday Cake Smash

I absolutely love celebrating 1st birthday milestones with families. The first year of life flies by so quickly and it's always such a bittersweet celebration when your little one turns one. 1st Birthday Cake Smashes are a great way to celebrate your child's first year of life while capturing some pictures that you will cherish for many years to come.

I've had this woodland themed backdrop since the beginning of winter and was just waiting for the right opportunity to use this theme. When we started planning Otis' 1st birthday cake smash, I just knew that this woodland theme would be perfect. Take a peak at these adorable 1st birthday pictures:

Waylon- Baby Boy Newborn Photo Session http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2018/4/waylon--newborn-photo-session Welcome Baby Waylon

I had the pleasure of photographing sweet little Waylon when he was about two months old. This sweet little guy was born early and spent the first few months in the hospital in Portland. As soon as he was ready to go home, his family brought him to my studio for his newborn photo session. While I typically like to photograph babies in the first 5-14 days of life, this little guy was a dream baby at nearly 2 months old. He slept peacefully through his portrait session and even made some of the sweetest expressions as well. Here's a sneak peek at baby Waylon's adorable newborn pictures with Gorge-Us Photography.

Piper- 1st Birthday Cake Smash http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2018/4/piper--1st-birthday-cake-smash Happy 1st Birthday Piper!

I love getting to celebrate 1st birthdays with my clients! The first year of a child's life is so momentous for so many reasons. For many parents, it's celebrating that they've survived their first year as a new parent while at the same time celebrating that their little one is growing up. So many milestones happen in the first year (first smile, first tooth, first laugh, first steps, first words, etc.). When I am contacted about a photo session for a 1st birthday cake smash, I love working with the family to create a custom set-up for their child. 

For Piper's 1st birthday we decided to do a pink and gold themed birthday cake smash photo shoot to match the theme of her first birthday party at home. Piper's aunt is a very talented baker and made a custom cake for this session that was so beautiful (Check out Hannah's Homemade Favorites)! Piper's mom found an adorable tutu and we accessorized it with a headband and necklace from my prop collection at the studio.

This was such a fun cake smash! Piper was super curious about her cake and LOVED it! I was able to capture so many adorable and precious images of Piper enjoying her birthday cake. I loved how she also kept trying to share with her momma. When we were all done taking pictures with the birthday cake, we put sweet Piper in a tub to rinse her off. When we put her in the tub to get her cleaned up, she signed "more" in baby sign language. She was such a fun baby to photograph and I had a blast creating and capturing this session.

If you have a little one turning one soon, I'd love to visit with you about a 1st birthday cake smash. I love creating special set-ups for these birthday milestones. You can contact me at jen@gorge-usphoto.com to learn more about a baby or cake smash photo session at my Hood River based portrait studio.

Here's a sneak peek from Piper's fun and adorable cake smash:

Baby Girl M-Hood River Newborn Photography http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2018/3/baby-girl-m-hood-river-newborn-photography This sweet baby girl came to Gorge-Us Photography's studio for her sweet newborn session at 4 weeks old. While I typically prefer to photograph "newborns" at 5-14 days old, I will happily photograph babies at any age. In the first 14 days of life, babies are still curled up and like to be wrapped tight like they were in the womb. After that stage, babies tend to become a little more alert and some don't like to be swaddled and wrapped the same. As babies get older, they do become more alert and that can lead to more open eye expressions like you'll see below in this sneak peek.

For this darling little girl's newborn session, we started with family pictures and then moved on to wrapped/posed images of just the baby girl. I absolutely love these beautiful pictures of mom and baby. Someday parents will love looking back and seeing how little their baby was in their arms. Children also love getting to see pictures of their parents too!  

Here's a sneak peek at this beautiful newborn portrait session:

Baby J- Hood River Newborn Portrait Session http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2018/3/baby-j--hood-river-newborn-portrait-session "​Before you were born I carried you under my heart. From the moment you arrived in this world until the moment I leave it, I will always carry you in my heart."
~Mandy Harrison

This sweet family came to see Gorge-Us Photography for a natural newborn in-studio session after the birth of their second child. I always like to have a pre-meeting with the family to learn about their preferences for style, color, etc. and after visiting with the mom, we decided to stick with neutral colors throughout the session to compliment the colors already in the family's home. We started the session with some adorable, sleepy pictures of this darling little boy. I love capturing up close details of the eyes, hair, mouth, nose, hands, feet, etc! I then moved in to some posed baby pictures by wrapping this little guy in fabric wraps. Next, we did sibling pictures with big sister. These photos can often be challenging, but this little girl was such a proud big sister and cooperated so well. We finished with individual pictures with mom and dad and family photos. Here's a sneak peek at this beautiful neutral newborn session:

Baby M- Hood River Newborn Photo Session http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2018/3/baby-m--hood-river-newborn-photo-session Paco and Shelly brought their sweet little boy, Marcello to see me at my Hood River based newborn portrait studio when he was just under 10 days old. This little guy slept so peacefully throughout his session and after capturing some darling photos of just Marcello, we added Mom & Dad into the pictures. One of my favorite parts of newborn pictures is when we include the parents in the session. I like to photograph each parent separately and then also take pictures with both parents in photos. This creates such  beautiful collection of family portraits. Someday your children are going to want to look back and see what their parents looked like or you may even want to look back and remember how little your baby was wrapped up in your arms. 

If you scroll all the way to the end of this blog post, you'll even see the gorgeous family portrait that's been printed as a large family heirloom canvas. I love working with clients to create one of a kind, custom wall portraits that they will cherish for a lifetime. If you are looking for an experienced photographer to capture these types of natural newborn images for your family, I'd love to visit with you!

Maternity Photos By The River http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2018/2/maternity-photos-by-the-river ​"To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings." ~Anne Christian Buchanan

This gorgeous momma-to-be is an avid kayaker so when we started planning Erinn's maternity photos, I knew instantly that we had to take her pictures along the Hood River (yes, there's a river with the same name as our town). We choose a peaceful spot along the Hood River that was easy to access while pregnant. Erinn is expecting a sweet little girl and is due in March. Here's a sneak peek from Erinn's gorgeous maternity session:

Jaxon R. - Baby Boy Newborn Session http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2018/2/baby-boy-newborn-session-hoodriver-oregon-newborn-photographer I had the pleasure of photographing this adorable little guy when he was less than a week old! Jaxon was a dream baby and slept so well throughout his entire newborn session. I started with photographing just Jaxon and then photographed his entire family, capturing sweet photos with mom, dad, and even big brother! I love being able to incorporate the entire family into a newborn session. There's such a small window of time that your baby can fit so snuggly into your arms and I love capturing this on camera for you to remember! Someday your child will love looking back on these images too and seeing how "mommy and daddy" looked as well ;)

If you are expecting a baby and looking for a newborn photographer to capture these precious moments for your family, I'd be honored to visit with you. The best time to plan your newborn session is before your baby is born so that we can plan your session. Click here to email me to schedule your sweet newborn session!

Mt.Hood Ski Bowl Summer 2017 Wedding http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2018/1/mt-hood-ski-bowl-summer-2017-wedding I am always excited when I get an inquiry to photograph a wedding on Mt.Hood. The natural and majestic beauty of Mt.Hood is hard to beat and when you combine that with the fun and rustic elements of Mt.Hood Ski Bowl, you end up with an awesome wedding and great wedding photos! There are not many wedding venues that guests get the opportunity to ride chair lifts or better yet, take an alpine slide down the mountain! 

Having photographed a handful of weddings at Mt.Hood Ski Bowl, I know that there's quite a few logistics that must be carefully planned out pre-wedding to make sure that the day flows properly and that people are where they need to be at the right time. For example, the guys typically get ready at Government Camp and need to allow plenty of time to take the chair lift up to the mid-mountain for the ceremony and bridal party portraits. If a couple wants to take the chair lift up to the Upper Bowl for a first look (which I highly recommend), then we need to allow for plenty of time riding the chair lift up and down (you don't want to be late for your own wedding). I love working with my wedding couples to make sure we have a well planned timeline that allows for plenty of time to capture photos showcasing the beauty of the mountain.

Robyn and Kevin's Mt.Hood Ski Bowl wedding was absolutely breathtaking and the perfect location for this adventurous couple. From riding chair lifts to the Upper Bowl for a dramatic and romantic first look to unparalleled views of Mt. Hood for the ceremony and taking the alpine slide down to the reception, this was an amazing wedding! Take a peek at this gorgeous mountain wedding:

Elliot-Sweet Newborn Session http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2018/1/elliot-hood-river-newborn-photo-session Elliot's family visited my Hood River newborn studio back in November for this sweet newborn photo session. Elliot has two siblings who are both still young in age so we decided to take family pictures on a bed set-up where it would be safe for them to hold their little brother. I just love how these siblings photos came together. These children are absolutely adorable and they love their little brother so much! After finishing family photos, I went on to capture some natural newborn photos of Elliot. I love detail shots! Look below and you will see all the darling facial features of baby E. It's amazing how much babies will change in the first few weeks of life and I think these detail shots are such great memories for parents. The final pictures in this sneak peek are of Elliot wrapped in a potato sack pose and he's wearing an adorable owl hat that a family friend made. I love incorporating special items that have been made for the baby!

Casey & Patrick 10.7.17 http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2018/1/casey-patrick-10-7-17 Casey & Patrick

Columbia Gorge Hotel

October 7, 2017

Casey and Patrick were married at the Columbia Gorge Hotel this past October. I absolutely LOVE fall weddings in the Gorge! The natural fall colors in the area are just stunning and Casey and Patrick choose a gorgeous location for their ceremony and reception. The Columbia Gorge Hotel is one of the top locations in the Gorge to get married. This hotel was once frequented by iconic legends such as Rudolph Valentino and Shirley Temple. Casey & Patrick did a wonderful job choosing colors and decorations that complimented the hotel and fall colors.

Here's a sneak peek at Casey & Patrick's lovely fall wedding in Hood River:

Summer Multi-Cultural Wedding at the Columbia Gorge Hotel http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2018/1/summer-multi-cultural-wedding-at-the-columbia-gorge-hotel It was a beautiful summer day for a wedding in Hood River, Oregon at the Columbia Gorge Hotel. With the backdrop of the Columbia River that included windsurfers & kiteboarders, so much natural greenery and a 200 ft. waterfall, it could not have been more perfect! Purple and lavender were the primary colors with love filling the air. Smiles, love and beauty epitomized this multi-cultural wedding with guests traveling from all over the globe. With breathtaking scenery, immaculate floral decorations, heart-felt vows & speeches, it seemed every guest was having a great time. The bride and groom even had a special choreographed first dance to Walk the Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance” which surprised everyone. Reception guests were treated to a converted VW van photo bus, where they could take and immediately walk away with portraits. Festivities ended with guests forming an exit line salute using 3’ sparklers, holding them like saluting swords. The bride and groom dipped for a romantic kiss and ran through the line to cheers. The perfect Gorge weather with an incredible backdrop to see two individuals joining together in matrimony created an unforgettable experience for all.

Why the couple choose the Columbia Gorge Hotel:

"Once we decided to have a destination wedding outside of Texas in Oregon the search was on. Living in Austin, TX it was hard for us to visit these venues early on so we had Ashley’s parents scout out venues on our behalf. They were blown away by its wedding potential on their first visit. They walked the path leading a bridal party to the ceremony, alongside a beautiful stream lined with exquisite vegetation and flowers. Approaching the main “aisle”, the spectacular gorge comes into view. From the wedding platform, a full view of the Columbia River! The ceremony would then flow across the stream via a bridge (where the stream becomes a waterfall) into the cocktail area. In turn, as you continue around the hotel, a breathtaking outdoor reception area. It was love at first sight!"

How the couple met:

"We met through some common friends at Fado’s Irish Pub in Austin, TX for a US International Soccer match. A mutual friend introduced us and we immediately had a strong connection. Ashley was about to leave town to attend physical therapy school in Portland, Maine, but our relationship flourished long distance for 3 years. Luckily, planned vacations and medical rotations aligned and we were able to see each other regardless of the distance. The day after graduation, Vinay proposed to Ashley by the cliffs of the Portland (ME) Headlight, a landmark lighthouse."

Bryden Newborn Photos http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2017/12/bryden-hood-river-newborn-photos  

Welcome to the world sweet Bryden! 

I've been so blessed to photograph this sweet family's journey for the past 5 years. I first met Lindsay and Marcus when they were getting married and we did their engagement photos in the Gorge. Since that time, I've had the honor of photographing their wedding, maternity pictures for both of Lindsay's pregnancies, and now newborn pictures for both of Lindsay and Marcus' adorable children. Here's a sneak peek at Bryden's adorable newborn pictures:

Baby Addison- Newborn Photos http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2017/12/baby-a-hood-river-newborn-photos I just love natural newborn sessions! There's something so pure and wonderful about capturing a newborn's natural movements and sweet little details. 

Sweet Addison was about a week old when she came to my Hood River newborn studio. We started the session with some family pictures with mom and dad and finished the session capturing these adorable and natural newborn photos.

If you are expecting a baby, I would be honored to visit with you about being your newborn photographer. I love capturing timeless images that you will cherish for many years to come!

Charlie & Caroline- Twin Newborn Session http://www.gorge-usphoto.com/blog/2017/11/charlie-caroline--hood-river-twin-newborn-photo-session I had the pleasure and honor of photographing Charlie and Caroline when they were about three weeks old. This sweet brother and sister were an absolute delight to photograph. I photographed their parent's wedding almost five years ago and I was so excited to have this opportunity to now photograph their twins.

Charlie and Caroline were so fun to photograph! It's amazing how twins can naturally soothe one another. When I placed the two of them together, they naturally relaxed and slept so peacefully. Here's a sweet sneak peek from their natural newborn session. Enjoy!
