Jaime Bley

Jaime is an artist and family photographer currently living in Portland, OR with her 13 year old son.  

Originally from New York and having spent the last few years living on the tiny and most beautiful island of Kauai, she longed to find a space that brought these 2 very opposite energies together:  leading her straight to Portland! 

Working mostly with musicians years back, photographing families became an instant passion after being asked to capture the arrival of twin baby girls.

What you're paying for:
I'm a Fine Art photographer. The actual photoshoot is only part of the magic. I place a lot of my time and creative efforts into each and every image. You will have pieces of Art of your child(ren), not just photographs.

When to schedule a Newborn Session: The best time to contact me is before you have your baby.  I will then add you to my schedule when your due date is expected.  Once your baby arrives, then within the first week is the best time to schedule your session.  The first week works best to get peaceful sleepy and very curly poses.  After two weeks of age, they are more likely to be disturbed while sleeping, and can also become colicky or baby acne can start to flare.

What you should be expecting from the Session:
Expect to have a blast! This is about having fun and capturing genuine moments that will be treasured for a lifetime.

When:
I prefer to shoot first thing in the morning or right before sunset in order to take advantage of the best natural light.
It’s not uncommon for the session with a newborn to last 3-4 hours, allowing plenty of time to feed and comfort.  Children's Sessions last about 1-2 hours. This gives the children time to relax and be themselves.

Where:
Anywhere! A favorite park or the beach. Your home. Whatever suits your needs and desires!

Clothing:

For Children- Keep your location and season in mind and choose colors that will coordinate.
Please avoid character and graphic t-shirts or busy patterns. You don't want anything to distract you from the subject: Your Beautiful Child(ren)!

For Newborns- Props will be brought to location.
But please feel free to include favorite personal pieces!
