Zoe Arnesen Photography

Hi and welcome! I have over 10 years of experience as a professional photographer, and 3 years specializing in newborns and maternity. My home studio is in SE Portland, Oregon.

I love focusing on the beauty of maternity and newborns, but also enjoy milestone sessions and cake smashes. I have recently started offering family sessions as well.

As a former play therapist with young children, I've always felt a special affinity for the magic of childhood. Photography has been a lifelong hobby of mine, but I started taking it more seriously in 2013 when I started photographing weddings. After the birth of my daughter in 2019, I had a major shift. I felt called to start photographing maternity and newborn, and have been in love with it since. I worked for a photography studio for a while before opening my own home studio in 2021.

I absolutely love capturing this precious time and can't imagine doing anything else.

What others are saying…

I cannot express enough how thankful I am that I found Zoe. All I wanted for my birthday was newborn photos of my daughter Kinsley. I reached out to Zoe late when Kinsley was already 2 weeks old and she immediately contacted me and set everything up! This was such a beautiful AND easy experience. I highly recommend getting your newborn photos with her. When I have other children, I already know I will be contacting Zoe again! She captured AMAZING photos of my little girl. I cannot thank her enough.

Zoe was absolutely amazing, very friendly and very professional! We went to her for maternity, newborn and 1 year ( with cake smash ) photos. We are so happy with the photos we get back each time! She makes the experience fun for you and your baby. For the one year photoshoot she had multiple outfits for my daughter. We got a lot amazing pictures together. She had a lot of fun during the cake smash and bubble bath afterwards. We absolutely love working with Zoe and highly recommend her for your photography needs!
