As you look at my photos, I hope you are experiencing the faded memories more than just looking at beautiful photos. I hope my photos can bring you to that time to that place, where I was, feel what I feel at the time when I took the photos… and maybe you can, because those feelings are similar to your own faded memories of the past.
more about me
With a lifestyle and documentary hybrid approach, I tell your story in a journalistic and artistic way. I’m based out of Portland, Oregon, and have travel sessions throughout the year.
I take a journalistic approach to capture real and emotive moments that speak to the heart. My sessions are laid back so you can feel comfortable to let your personality and story shine.

Light By Iris on the journal
"Iris is an artist. When it comes to photography, style, and light her talent is incredible. She doesn’t just capture photos, but memories. When I look back at our last three sessions with her, I don’t just see beautiful photos, but I remember the moments with my family. She’s the only photographer who has been able to capture my children’s personalities, because they feel so comfortable with her.
"Session with Light By Iris was an amazing experience for my family! Iris is so talented, genuine and absolutely a pleasure to work with. Her art is one of a kind and I know we will continue to have more sessions with her in the future. Thank you Iris, for capturing such precious moments in time."
"During our session, Iris put us at ease at once. Because she didn't tell us to hold a pose in a certain way, my daughter didn't display any of her death grins whenever she's told to look at the camera. That in turn allowed me to relax and enjoy the occasion.
Iris has a great eye for capturing unique and touching moments between family members, and her stylistic choices for any given set are always spot on.
What can I say, she just always captures people in the best, kindest light. It's magic."
