Meeting you in your space – Portland Lifestyle Family Photographer

Parents and child swing outdoors at their home in Beaverton Oregon

“Meg. do you think it’s weird to come over and just take photos of us playing?” No, I don’t, and YES, a million times yes for me coming over. The day-to-day and hour-to-hour of our lives is the biggest part. It’s loud, it’s energy, it’s sweet, it’s fking wild. And since I was crying tonight while nursing my baby because I was thinking about how the past 4 months have sped right by…please invite me over to be your lifestyle family photographer so that I can use my magic powers to call TIME OUT.

After some quick snuggles come the bubbles! I love how he fits on her legs for airplane. In a couple years he will be too long and she will look back at this photo.

Most weekend days (you know in Oregon when it’s not dreary outside) this family enjoys swinging together in the backyard.

    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
