Ashlan Taylor Photography | Birth and Newborn photographer in Portland Oregon


Capturing moments and telling stories as they unfold is my passion. I graduated with a photography degree from Kingston University (London, England) and a graduate degree from Leicester University (Leicester, England).  I have since been lucky enough to work as both a journalism photographer, and the resident photographer for the Federal Reserve here in states. Now, as a mother to two young children, I have turned my passion for photography toward the awe inspiring experience that is birth.  I fall in love with the beauty and strength of every birth story I am lucky enough to witness. My goal is to create timeless images, that are just as unique as the wonderful birth story being photographed and provide high quality finished products that can be cherished for decades to come.

It's important as a birth photographer that you feel at ease and comfortable being yourself around me. As a witness to some of my clients most raw and vulnerable lifetime moments, I try to find a blend of approachable yet invisible while working. While you are focused on the life changing work of birth, my camera will be there with you, helping capture all the details that would otherwise long be forgotten.

I'm also following my passion with the founding of 'The Milk Stories', a blog that celebrates and unites women in all the highs and lows that come with feeding our young.  I would love the chance to meet you and tell your story and hopefully watch your family grow as your photographer for years to come. Feel free to call me, we can drink a cup of coffee or tea and see if we would be a good fit.
