Hi, I'm Kira!

I am a Portland photographer specializing in pet photography and wedding/elopement photography. I spent my childhood in California, but I currently attend grad school in New York. I graduated a few years ago with a B.A. in Studio Arts and a B.A. in Biology.

I've been incredibly fortunate to learn from inspiring, groundbreaking artists since I was 6 years old, and the techniques and artistic sense I've developed influence my work in photography as well.

Since discovering my love for film ("analog") photography, my style has developed into what it is today: light-filled, genuine montages of the relationships between my clients and their loved ones. If you're looking for a photographer in Portland with a fine art aesthetic, I'd love to connect with you!
