Lacey Monroe Photography, documentary family photographer in Portland, Oregon
Lacey has a gift for being able to not only see and capture special moments with her camera, she has a natural gift for composition. Her photos almost always reflect a deeper story behind the picture. I’m not sure how she does it, but she has a talent of capturing the emotion of the moment.
Her attention to detail and the quality of the finished product was absolutely beautiful. I would not hesitate to hire her in the future and I highly recommend her if you’re looking to capture a special moment in your life.

I’ve been meaning to tell you how great the experience/you were Sunday. Our family was a bit nervous about how it would all play out but everyone had a lot of fun and didn’t even notice/care that photos were being taken. Everyone was extremely impressed with your approach. I’m sure we will love the photos, but the experience itself was a blast and truly unique in its own special way.

Working with Lacey was a wonderful experience. She shot a family session for us and not only did the photos come out beautiful, but she was so easy to work with. During the shoot she was excellent with our young daughter and made us all feel very much at ease. The whole process was very informal and relaxed, which is just how I wanted my family photos to feel. Her style of photography truly captures the essence of family - the love, the fun, sometimes the chaotic and imperfect too - and the pictures she took reflected us for REAL. I love them so much, and will be using her again for another family shoot with our newest addition very soon.

Lacey is a relaxed, easygoing photographer who made the shoot enjoyable and fun for our family. She was so natural that we didn’t even know we were being photographed. She let us be us. Our final portraits captured the ease of the shoot, and had a creative, candid viewpoint. We’ll definitely use her again and can’t recommend her enough.

My family and I hired Lacey Monroe to capture the love our family in the beauty of fall. During our session, Lacey made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. She interacted well with my husband and was very playful with our daughter which made us feel at ease in front of the camera. My husband is a tough one to get expressions from so I was pleased that she was able to get him to open up. The session overall was fun, full of laughter and love and more importantly, Lacey was able to capture all of that. After receiving our photos, I was amazed at how authentically she was able to capture our family and the little moments between us. I would happily recommend Lacey to any family looking for the similar experience.

I love my photos by Lacey Monroe! She is so easy to work with. She is great at capturing the moments you want to hang on to forever. I was a little nervous to be photographed because I wanted everything to turn out ‘just-so.’ Lacey put me at ease and made the whole shoot very natural and organic. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!
