A few months back I got to meet Hannah, the owner of Go Belly Go. She makes these really cool maternity necklaces that show the month your baby is due. They are really cute and make GREAT gifts! Anyway, we got to talking and I ended up doing some product shots for her of the jewelry. You can check out her product online at www.gobellygo.com and if you or anyone you know is expecting, you will love these! My close friend Nadine was the model for the necklaces, and she is expecting her first baby girl in just two months.
Also, thank you to everyone who responded to the “Shoot at the Nines Hotel”. We are fully booked up for the whole weekend, and I am getting REALLY excited for these sessions! I am considering offering these hotel sessions every couple months, but am not sure of the interest. So, if this is something you and/or your friends would be interested in please let me know!
The office is going to be closed March 20th-April 6th as I will be venturing to my favorite place in the world, Greece. We should be available via email but please keep in mind that there will be delayed responses. So if you are looking to book a shoot or your baby is due during this time please contact the studio right away so that we may accommodate you.
So about two weeks ago I posted a note about looking for a 2-3 year old girl model for some concept shoots. The first one to respond was little Sophia's mom. We met a few days later in this random field of trees for some fun shots. Anyway, here's what we got
I just wanted to let you all know that because of the great response we have gotten for the shoot at the Nines, we will be extending our stay there for the entire day March 1st, Sunday. So if you are still thinking about doing a session, please email me to reserve your spot right away! We still have spots open throughout the day Sunday the 1st, but they are going quickly. You will still receive 25% off your session fee as well!
I just wanted to remind everyone that Valentine's Day now less than a week away! If you have been thinking about getting the Sweetheart Special, now is the time to reserve your session! Remember, this comes with a session (this session can be done anytime between now and March 2nd) AND your choice of the Jane necklace or bracelet. Your bracelet or necklace comes with between 1 and 3 images from your session! This jewelry is our newest product and is a great way to show off your little ones! The Sweetheart Special is only $169 right now (normally this package would be $279), but you have to purchase this package before February 15th! So feel free to forward this blog link to your sweethearts as a little reminder that you want more than a box of chocolates this year
I just wanted to post an update, the location of this shoot for the 28th of Feb or the 1st of March is now going to be at the Nines Hotel in downtown Portland. This hotel just opened, and I love their style! Anyway, if any of you are interested in booking a session for Feb 28th (afternoon) or March 1st (morning) for an awesome inside location, let me know! Here are some pictures of their rooms:
Also, anyone who books a session for this special location receives 25% OFF THEIR SESSION FEE!
I took the two little ones I watch to Cook Park today. It was a little chilly, but it was so sunny! Anyway, here are a few snapshots I took of them while we were there!
He has such amazing eyes they really pop in photos!
And its nap time!
As you can tell from my website and blog, I love photographing kids. But I also love photographing other subjects too. I have, on occasion, had the opportunity to do some boudoir sessions (for women to give to their husband or husband-to-be) and really enjoy them! I love capturing beautiful images of women, in a tasteful style. Anyway, one of my long time friends is getting married in May and we will be doing her boudoir session at the end of this month. I am excited for this because we are going to do the shoot in one of the gorgeous suites at the Hotel DeLuxe. So I figure, why not get as much use out of it as possible? If you are interested in getting your own boudoir, bridal portrait, child, baby, or maternity session done and want to take advantage of this great location let me know! The date is February 28th. There are only a limited number of sessions available for this day so if you would like to schedule your session please let me know as soon as possible!
If you are thinking about a boudoir session, these are great gifts for upcoming weddings, anniversaries, husband's birthday, or a belated Valentine's Day gift!
So its my goal this year to take some serious time for concept shoots. I have a lot of ideas/themes/outfits that I want to try out in some shoots. The whole goal in this is just have some fun and get creative! Anyway, the weather this Wednesday is supposed to be pretty nice and a little WARMER (which is wonderful! But hey, we are talking only a few degrees warmer!) So I am hoping that one of you blog readers out there has a child I can use for a shoot on Wednesday.
I would like 1 or 2 girls that are ages 2 1/2 or 3. This will be on Wednesday afternoon, around 4pm (for about an hour) in the Tigard area. Please email me or comment on this post if you are interested. The shoot, of course, is free. You will have the option to purchase any images if you would like
I hope a few of you will help me in the quest to create beautiful images.
