We live pretty close tothe playground, and it's right next to the off-leash dog park so there are a lot of stops here.
Love this kid! Aisy and I had a fantastic daddy-daughter date night last Friday. We had dinner together then headed down to the Keller auditorium for a musical! So much fun!
Bailey and I walk by this bench nearly every day after dropping Aisy off at school. When It's not rainy I'll sometimes sit down for a bit while Bailey explores and smells everything.
Fishtail. No, I'm not that good. Mom did it before heading off to work. I've got the high Pony and the messy bun down though.
December was a really full month for me and what better way to finish the year than my shoot at Pregame! Founded by Ciara Pressler, Pregame is a space and community dedicated to giving entrepreneurs the guidance, support, and connections they need to move forward.
We set up a studio in the meeting room for portraits, I sat in on some impromptu sessions and then grabbed a few images of the beautiful space- located in the heart of Portland's Pearl District.
Just before the holidays I had a chance to shoot a series of documentary-style images for East Portland Pediatrics which is located at the Adventist hospital in East Portland. We had a few actual patients and some children of the Staff (also patients of course!) come in and we generally had a great time! They also have a dedicated teen clinic as well. If you are looking for a pediatrician, I can't recommend them enough!
Sometimes you look at your website and think, "Well it can't have been too long since the last time I posted" and then you realize it was 2 months ago. Sorry about that. I've been really busy. I promise! The time between the last post and this one has been my busiest, and in many ways most productive photography season ever.
So, before I get too far in here, let me just say thank you! If you are a client that trusted me to tell the story of your business, represent your professional image, show off your family or just spiff up your facebook profile pic I am sincerely grateful. You've made this an unbelievably successful first year in business for myself. I also want to say thank you to all of the friends that have supported me, asked about it and referred their friends and family my way. Your support is so valuable to me and I'm grateful.
So, what have I been doing the last 3 months?
I wrapped up my largest professional project to date- 200+ matching headshots over 16 sessions at 15 locations spread over 2.5 months.
I tackled 4 documentary style photo sessions which I'll be sharing more in-depth in the coming weeks (when the clients start using them). Headshots and patient documentary shots for a group of pedatricians, An entrepreneur coaching group in an amazing space in the Pearl District, a custom furniture maker, and a local winemaker marketing a new sparkling wine.
In the meantime, here are a few of my favorites from my professional work this year.
Philip and I met for a morning session in downtown Portland fully expecting a typical overcast fall morning, but instead we were greeted with one of fall's first crisp and clear days. Philip is an agent with Broad River Financial Services in the Portland area.
