100 Days Celebration: Beaverton, OR Lifestyle Baby Milestone


I am very used to families messaging me when their babe’s first come home,
they are rushing to capture their new babes before the first major growth spurts hit and they look more “baby” than “newborn”.
This phone call was unusual to me because the family wanted to document their baby’s “100 Days Celebration.” Immediately I hopped onto my computer to look that up. Honestly, I had no idea what that was, do you? The 100 first days is a traditional celebration that marks the end of the first 3 months of life for a new baby — in other words, it’s the end of the fourth trimester! There’s also another tale of lore that says that most babies, way back when, did not survive past 100 days. So when they did it was cause for a big celebration!

No matter the reason, I’m glad that not only did I learn about a new culture’s celebration of babies, I fell in love with the 3 month age. I could see baby H’s growing personality and the spunk her parents have fallen in love with. Plus, I’m always game for a protective and curious (and cute) fur-sibling 🙂


Feeling a little small? Well, in the context of the cosmos, we are small.

    a bittersweet farewell…

    It is with a heavy heart that I announce the closure of Meg Ross Photography. After much reflection and consideration following the death of my husband and children's father, I have made the difficult decision to close my business. This decision was not made lightly, and it comes after a great deal of contemplation about healing from grief and how to best show up for my children..


    I want to express my deepest gratitude to each and every one of you for allowing me to be a part of your special moments. It has been an honor and a privilege to capture the beauty and emotion of childbirth for so many families. Your trust and support have meant the world to me, and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of your lives.


    Hugs and oxytocin,
    Meg Ross
