Nice to meet you!

Welcome to my labor of love.



My name is Maddie, and I'm a photographer living in Portland, Oregon.

I've been photographing my favorite people and places for a thrilling seven years...! Hailing from the suburbs of the Midwest, home is so important to me. Much of what I love to photograph revolves around my fascination with home as an emotional space.

After completing my B.F.A. in Photography last spring at the Pacific Northwest College of Art, I decided to create Home + Maker as a way to document the love all around me. Personally, I think it’s the best job in the world.

I'm currently spending my days exploring America with my girlfriend and favorite film camera. While I am based in the Pacific Northwest, I am always willing and excited to travel. 

All people + all bodies are welcome here.

We might make great friends if...

  • You’re obsessed with old film photo booths 
  • You’ve got a Dolly Parton record collection worth bragging about
  • You spend your rent money on Kodak film and soy lattes
  • You love to thrift, but you’re really bad at it
  • You spend every weekend driving around looking for adventure (read: good photo ops)
  • You feel most at home behind the wheel
  • You feel most calm in front of the ocean
  • You think brunch is without a doubt better than breakfast

My partner and I did a couples lifestyle session at home and we were blown away with our photographs! They felt so much like “us” and we will treasure them for a long time...

Maddie took my senior photos and I adore them. Truly a treasure years later. Not only is she immensely talented she is a kind and wonderful person to work with. Highly recommend and I would definitely book her again!
