Portrait Albums in the Real World

next one fine art matted album

Back when I was a wedding photographer, magazines and later wedding blogs would scour the internet looking for content and post “real weddings” to show future couples what they could do in the world of wedding planning. Well, this isn’t a wedding photography site. And I ONLY show real women that live life in the […]

For Heads and Hearts

lollys locks provides wigs for women fighting cancer

Several weeks ago I had the great honor of participating in a photo shoot with four women. Each woman received a high-quality wig through Lolly’s Locks, a non-profit created to help women feel beautiful, even while going through chemo.

“But what will I wear?” Oh do I hear that often! I’ve even said it myself from time to time. The blunt answer is the easiest – whatever makes you feel great! But often times I think that only scratches the surface. Eleni came with a small collection of remarkable dresses, and I’m admittedly only […]

The Power of a Great Dress & The Self-Portrait

photography for women in portland

It’s this past Monday, mid-afternoon. I’m wearing business-y clothes and even though I know I put deodorant on it doesn’t quite feel like enough. I’m standing on a stage in front of 150+ photographers starting to talk about… not photography. I’m nervous, mostly because I stumble over words on a good, normal kind of day. […]
