Hi, I’m Iris, based out of Portland, Oregon, USA. I'm a lifestyle photography award winner, specializing in lifestyle and documentary sessions with family, newborns, and special occasions. With a lifestyle and documentary hybrid approach, I capture who you are and connections in between moments. I’m serving Portland and surrounding areas, and always willing to travel! I take a more journalistic approach to capture real and emotive moments that speak to the heart. My sessions are laid back so you will feel comfortable to let your personality and story shine.
I am originally from Brazil and lived in London for 12 years before moving to the great Pacific Northwest. As a mom, I know how busy parents are and how important making and keeping memories of our little ones is. My work as a photographer brings me to revisit some of my most cherished memories of a barefoot childhood and spilled ice cream. Because of that, my sessions are filled with fun and have a lot of room for authentic connections between you and your loved ones. I believe in the central and essential role of women in society as mothers, professionals, and individuals and so I always make time for mama to have her special moment in front of the camera. When I’m not making pictures you can find me in the kitchen looking for something sweet, crying to an episode of Schitt’s Creek or under a pile of dishes.
I found my passion in photography as I became a mom. It started as just a simple desire of wanting to capture beautiful images of my own children. My passion has grown over time, and I now want to share my passion with others. As a mom, I know kids stay little for only a little while, and want to capture the precious moment of you and your loved ones in the form of photography so you can forever cherish it. My passion is to capture the real connections of families by letting them be who they are in the moment. These are the moments that you want to remember when your kids get older. The way your kids smiled at you, how their little hands held yours, I love lifestyle, storytelling photography because it captures that. Let me see your family story and let's tell it! I look forward to building a relationship with you. I am based out of Washougal, but I do sessions all over the greater Portland metro area, the Columbia River Gorge as well as the Oregon coast.
Hi. I'm Sam: a photo-taking, baby-making, adventure-seeking mama + photographer. I fell in love with photography in a high school darkroom class and dedicated much of my career life to learning the art form since. From editorials, albums, and magazine covers, so many friendly kiddos, fresh babies on their birth days, and destination weddings, I've enjoyed the challenge of it all. Beyond photography, I love being a mom and a wife, growing my tropical food forest, dancing, decorating, traveling, chickens, sewing, clean sheets, dinner parties, snowboarding, camping, IPAs, hiking, and that tingly feeling when you first get into a hot bath. I love great late-night conversations that dig deep, karaoke in dive bars where people are performing like they're on the verge of a midlife crisis, and the rush of Christmas mornings. And I'd love to connect with fresh families that dig my style and would like to document their families as they grow. Because while time flies, we can capture and preserve little slices of each chapter. So, let's have fun and take beautiful portraits together!

The story of my life with a camera started when I was 11, and without knowing it, I have had a camera at my side since that day 24 years ago. But my journey of photographing human connection started 9 years ago after I gave birth to my daughter. Feeling like time was moving too fast, my lens turned to the tiny human in my lap. Her newborn toes and baby rolls were quickly transforming into a fast and toothy toddler... I wanted to remember it all. Each tiny finger. Every curl on the back of her neck. How we touched noses for comfort. Or the first garden we planted together. As a child, I loved flipping through old picture boxes and hoarding my favorites. I asked about what I saw in the pictures and my parents recalled vacations, holidays, stories of drawing on the walls with permanent markers, birthdays, or trips to the park to feed the ducks. The pictures became a way for us to remember. To tell stories. Photography is my way of storytelling, and when I look at a photograph, I FEEL the moment, and my head and heart rejoice in the memory. With my lens, I capture the everyday details that make up my life, those moments that become my cherished memories.
