What is this about?

Like many photographers I do not enjoy being in front of the camera.  This is usually the case because often I am unsatisfied or disappointed when I see pictures of myself.  I feel that there is so much more to me than what I see in a photograph.  That is what inspired me to offer this type of stylized portraits for people; to reveal what is present in that moment for them that cannot be seen in traditional photography.  My portraits are powerful in commemorating particular moments in a person's life, whether that be a crossroads of uncertainty, a cultivation of certain attributes, or a claiming parts of ourselves with authority.  My goal to illustrate the unique, inherant magic that exists within each picture I take, to have the unseen be seen. 

How to have your portrait taken

Portrait Pop up

There are two ways to have your portrait done.  Two to three times a year I pop up an conferences and shops around Portland.  I'll talk to each client for a few minutes and do some subtle posing for the picture, all in all it usually doesn't take more than 15 minutes.  From there I work my photo magic at my home studio and 7-10 days later you get your image in the mail.  I have photographed individuals, couples, families, and friends.  Wondering what I will see in your picture?  Subscribe to my email list and follow me on social media to find where I will be popping up next.  Pricing for 15 minute portrait:  4x6 - $30-55    5x7- $35-60   groups of 4 or more $45-75.  Each portrait comes with a print and digital copy.  

By appointment

I am available by appointment in my home studio on Mondays from 2-5:30, Wednesdays and Fridays 10-2.  Appointments are 30-45 minutes long, giving more time and space for questions and uncovering what wants to seen in the photo through dialogue with the client.  Photos from these shoots are printed in my studio size 6x8 on archival 8x10 rag paper.  Pricing for appointment sessions:  $85-135 this includes a digital and print copy.   To book an appointment email or text 503 473 9612
