with studio newborn photography
& heirloom artwork

Timeless • Modern • Heirlooms

There's nothing worse than leaving beautiful photos collecting digital dust on your laptop's hard drive, never to be seen and enjoyed by you, your family, and friends. Enshrine these priceless memories as high-quality heirloom artwork. From planning your photo session through guiding you on where & how to hang your printed artwork, I'm there with you through every step of the process.

And if you've never heard of “heirloom artwork” until this moment, don't worry. I'll explain it all! You're in great hands.

We had the best experience with Zoe for newborn photography and can't recommend her enough! She is incredibly talented, professional, creative, and organized—everything you could ask for in a photographer. She communicates very clearly, laying out everything you need to know for the photoshoot. Her studio is exceptionally well-equipped and designed. She listened to our wishes and curated multiple artistic setups for the shoot. She is a “baby whisperer” and our newborn daughter was so comfortable with her for the entire shoot. My husband and I actually got to relax a bit and enjoy the shoot in her studio, which was a nice treat! The whole experience was beyond our expectations. And best of all, the photos we received are gorgeous and are like works of art. We will treasure this special experience and photographs forever. Thank you, Zoe, for capturing the beauty and sparkle of our new daughter!

Zoe is a phenomenal photographer! I love how she has a vision and goes for it! She directed me into picture-perfect positions and made me feel like a Queen for a day, dressing me in gorgeous gowns and fancy jewelry. And the photos are proof!! Can you say, “Vanity Fair worthy?!” No joke. Once you meet Zoe and her assistant, you will fall in love! They are so sweet and made me feel so comfortable. They made the day feel effortless, and her studio is absolutely amazing! Don’t sleep on Zoe! I am so incredibly grateful for the Vanity Fair style maternity photos I will hold dear to my heart for a lifetime!

Zoe is amazing! We have done maternity, newborn and 3 month infant photo sessions with her so far and the final product has always been amazing. She is totally professional, but also makes you feel comfortable and at ease. Her home studio is perfect, and she has so many outfits and setups to choose from.

You can tell she loves what she does, and she’s so good with kids. Definitely would recommend!

Zoe is the absolute best! She was so good with not only my newborn daughter, but my son, who is a toddler! Such a professional! She also has an amazing studio in SE Portland, Oregon! She has plenty of backdrops and full scenes for the photoshoots! I am so pleased my family and I went to her for our newborn/family photos! I didn't even know she got any with my son because he was constantly on the move. Not many photographers, even seasoned ones, are capable of that! I highly recommend her for any photography needs for Portland families!

We had the pleasure of having Zoe take photos for this most important time in our lives. Her presence is one you absolutely want for all your special occasions. She wants to make sure you get the shots you want while also providing professional direction to ensure you look your best. She's unobtrusive and sweet, but will also stand up for you as needed. Your special day will go by so fast! Zoe will provide you with photos to remember it for the rest of your life. Please take my advice and hire her! You'll be so happy you did.
