Two years ago I was a bit devastated when we moved from our Division Street studio, since we would also be leaving our nearby Garden Bar.

But...guess who is moving just a few blocks from our new place in Lake Oswego? You guessed it, Garden Bar! Dreams do come true. In the meantime, I will be working on some fresh brand photography for the homegrown Portland business. Look for a few of these images to also appear in the Portland Business Journal, among other publications celebrating Garden Bar as one of the fastest growing Portland companies. 

And, if you haven't tried their incredible salads yet, what are you waiting for?

Ana Chaud is one of my favorite people ever! She is the founder of Garden Bar, my go-to healthy lunch option and the BEST salad bar in Portland (and probably the world). I'll be forever grateful for taking a chance on my teenager and giving him his first summer job ever. And, now the newest Garden Bar is opening two blocks away from my studio in Lake Oswego...dreams do come true! Anna is an inspiring, energetic, smart business women, mom, and workout fanatic who always has a big smile on her face and a hug to share. Basically, she is awesome.

Inspiring Portland Women: Whitney Martin

I know Whitney as the event director, member coordinator and all-around "den mom" of our Portland Chapter Entrepreneur's Organization but today I found out she is also a highly talented creative director and working model. Beyond being a dream to photograph, Whitney also brought a spread of yum-o snacks AND assisted me in directing a couple of other shoots. Way to my heart....
