Portland Newborn

Hi, I’m Emilie

I never wanted to be a photographer. I didn’t even want maternity photos during my first pregnancy.

And then…it was too late.

I’m Emilie, a maternity, newborn, and family photographer based in Portland, Oregon. The one who never had any intention ever of becoming a photographer.

Motherhood changes everything and made me to see the world differently.

"Emilie, we’ve had lots of professional photos taken over the years. I have a terrible memory and photos are important to me. You know exactly how to create warmth and safety; you see what makes each of us shine and you capture that moment. It’s a special gift and you have it. I am SO grateful for you"
