Capturing life's moments, big and small, through portraiture and documentary story telling.

<Cardamom&Honey Photography>                              the spice and sweet of life

Beginning with your pregnancy (or however your family begins), I would be honored to help document the sweet in your life with beautiful maternity, newborn and family portraiture.  And what is sweet without a little spice?  Those moments of silliness, laughter, sass, and joy make for images that conjure that emotion for years to come are best captured in a more candid, documentary style.  And it's more fun.  Let's capture it all.

Also, sleep deprivation kills your memory.  Photography is the cure.  I know... I've been there.

I am excited to be involved at any point in your life as a family!  Maternity sessions are best when your belly is big and full.  Newborn sessions are best within the first 10 days, but we can make later work.  Family sessions are often best when kids get a chance to run around a little before needing to sit still.  Plan on having snacks and weather-approprate clothing.  Having a helper on hand to get your kids to smile is INVALUABLE, if you have the option of a neighbor or grandparent to join us.

Full Sessions start at 2 hours and can be as long as 5, more for newborns, less for sessions without children (on the outside!).  Prices vary depending on timing and type of session.  Contact me for more details.

Mini sessions are scheduled around the holidays and offer an opportunity to get a few quick holiday images to share with family and friends.  This year we're looking to set up mini session days on the Oregon Coast and in and around Portland.  Email me if you're interested so we can coordinate everyone.  Contact me for more details.
