new frames are here!

We are thrilled to announce some upgrades to our frame line for 2018! Our frames are now being manufactured here in Portland. We are now using 100% hardwood and have replaced the glass with light-weight portrait quality acrylic. Saw tooth hangers are also installed (two on larger sizes) for stability. Come by to see our new options, including a gorgeous fog grey and champagne gold...we know you will love them!

Happy New Year!

The Lake Oswego portrait studio is reopened after a little break, after I was able to soak in some much-needed Caribbean sunshine over the holidays. We hope you enjoyed the season and were able to spend time with friends and family. We're also looking forward to seeing you in 2018~ Happy New Year!

family portraits in the lake oswego studio

The weather outside may be frightful (wet, windy and cold) but it is bright and cozy here in the studio...look at this happy family of four! We also have coffee, tea, comfy seating and good tunes. It may be too late for a holiday photo session, but you can come in during January and we will make your 2018 sparkle with new art for your home. Pssst Dads, mom would really love a gift certificate for portraits in her stocking...

San Francisco Getaway

Last month I took a quick trip to San Francisco to see one of my photography heroes, Pete Souza speak of his time as the Obama White House photographer. To say his work (and stories) were inspiring would be an understatement. I also had a few days to spend with friends, visit the newly expanded SF MOMA, enjoy several Mint Mojitos at Philz Coffee, and even catch a showing of Beach Blanket Babylon

family portraits with college kids

Think college kids are too old (or too tall!) for family portraits? Think again! This adorable family of four includes a UC Cal Bear and a UC Davis Aggie.
