Instagram Mom Of The Week: Margaret Jacobsen @Margejacobsen
WORDS: ASHLEY POAG
We take a peek inside this gorgeous Portland-based family's world, courtesy of the photographer mom's Instagram account.
Margaret Jacobsen makes the everyday moments of life—spending time with good friends, watching your children during their midday naps—look extraordinary. As a photographer, or as Margaret prefers to think of it, “one who captures moments,” this Portland-based mother of two has done an amazing job capturing her own creative and inspiring life on her Instagram account @Margejacobsen.
Light, love, and creativity spill out from the images Margaret shares on Instagram. Each one appears to be a reflection of the photographer herself.
Margaret's everyday moments become works of art. Using light and shadows she creates a beautiful photograph of her son, Beck, sleeping.
Though she doesn’t readily admit it, Margaret is a professional photographer whose work consist of everything from Beyonce-themed photo shoots to fashion photography and family portraits.
We’re not just inspired by her professional photos but also her family life. We can’t get enough of all their silly spontaneous moments—it makes us want to laugh and dance right along with them!
Riley and Margaret’s selfies usually involve singing, racing, and, apparently, lots of giggling!
This family is so unique and everyone seems so comfortable and happy just being themselves.
Margaret’s photos of her children as well as her partner Leif are filled with pure joy.
Along with friends who are also artists, Margaret recently launched a socially sustainable consulting agency. Brushfire Creative Partners grew from her desire to meet with fellow African-Americans and create. We’re super excited to watch the venture take off.
You can almost hear the laughter! Make sure to follow @margejacobson for a peek into this fun and creative mom’s life.
