Photoshoot with Deena Anreise


I met Deena a couple months ago when I was shooting the WebVisions event in Portland and as we started talking we quickly figured out that we should schedule a photoshoot.

We met up without much of a plan, counting on using the older character on Portland's Eastside for our backdrop. We wandered around (and into) a few older buildings and found exactly what we were looking for. I really like how these capture Deena's personality!

Nate, Pip's and the First-Timers

A few weeks back I reached out to Nate and Jamie Snell the owners of Pip's Original Donuts here in Portland about doing a documentary photoshoot of their amazing location, people, community spirit and of course the Donuts.

As we were standing there in the shop talking about the project, some first-time customers walked in and Nate took the opportunity to step away from our conversation to do what he does best. There's an enthusiasm and care that goes into everything they do and I can't wait to share the photos from my 2 sessions at the shop.
