About Hilary

Hey there! I'm Hilary Foreman and I am a Portland, Oregon based lifestyle family and newborn photographer. I have a passion for capturing images full of connection and love. 

I have a BFA in photography from the Rhode Island School of Design. My focus while in school was on large format fine art photography and film exploring topics of family and memory.

I recently completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training and have incorporated mindfulness and body awareness into my photo sessions with great results.

I have been married to my partner for 13 years and we have two awesome kids, Cora (age 4) and Jasper (age 9). We love exploring the playground of the Pacific Northwest. On weekends you will find us swimming, skiing, hiking and playing hard.

Because I prioritize time with my family, I limit the number of sessions I book each month.

About the Experience

I thrive on capturing moments of connection and beauty that would otherwise go unseen. I am passionate about providing heirloom photography for families because the cherished moments within a family go by so fast. My work is a way to slow down, if only for a split second.

Vibe: I excel in outdoor environments, with unposed children and families in natural light. My clients have applauded how casual and comfortable they feel working with me and appreciate my understanding of lighting. My goal is for you to feel like you simply had a great date with a friend (who happened to have a camera).

Location: Together we will choose a location that resonates for you and your family. Newborn sessions happen in the comfort of your home, ideally within the first two weeks of life.
