professional headshots

When my functional medicine physician, Dr. Maggie Yu, asked me if I knew anyone who could create modern, professional headshots for her , I was happy to recommend myself (and my trusty assistant of 11+ years, Sarah).

Maggie and her practice's nutritionist Frankie came by the studio to update their professional headshots and we managed to get so many good ones and have a lot of fun!

If you are in the Portland area, I highly recommend Dr. Maggie, especially if you have anything going on with hormones, autoimmune disease or issues your regular doctor just cannot figure out. You can see more about her office here.

new folio boxes are here!

We are LOVING our new luxurious, handcrafted folio boxes, the perfect bridge between display art and albums. And, also the collectible every grandparent wants! (They told us....we know.)

Collections of either 10 or 20 images are included in our hand cut linen covered boxes, which coordinate perfectly with our album line. Unique to our folio boxes: a diagonal opening allows mats to be moved over and kept inside the box for neat and clean viewing and archivability.

Even better? Our folio boxes are handmade in the USA, cruelty free and environmentally friendly. Start your collection with your favorites from a past session, or a new one~

hey, baby

These two ladies travelled all the way from Miami to visit the studio. With so many changes during the first year of life, capturing a beautiful portrait as newborns, sitters, and new walkers is essential. Getting a timeless interactive one with mama is a bonus!

What do you want your family to remember?

Alaska Retreat

Our whole crew from the studio just returned from a week-long retreat to Alaska on the Celebrity Solstice. We did a ton of work (really!), ate way too much, spotted orca, humpbacks, porpoises, and seals and came together as a team of 5. Great times!

We're now back and ready for a summer of Portland sunshine, iced coffee and photography. Hope to see you soon~

lifestyle ranch shoot

030

I just returned from a few days in Florida for what I think was my all-time favorite project to date.

Here's a peek at some items on my shot list:

  • large and small chicken coops
  • barn, interior and exterior
  • front and back pastures
  • mini barns
  • obstacle course
  • ponds
  • white sand beach
  • arena
  • 10 breeds of chickens
  • horse training in round pen
  • horse driving over bridge
  • kids feeding tortoises strawberries
  • grooms hand walking and grooming horses
  • groom dropping hay
  • 11 miniature horses individually
  • goats playing on goat gym
  • donkey group
  • six large horses photographed individually
  • all staff headshots

Of course, the day I arrived the weather went from balmy to downright scorching. I don't think I have ever been so hot, dirty and exhausted or drank so much water...but I also loved every single minute of the experience.

Oh and the best part? As I was packing up to leave after Day 3, a miniature horse decided to give birth in a pasture. Take a peek at the little foal with her mama at just a few minutes old. Pure magic.
