Portland Actor Headshots for Miss Ella

We worked with Ella first the first time a couple of weeks back. She was getting some headshots done in preparation for a showcase (and, by all reports that have come our way, she pretty much rocked it.) We kind of figured she would, considering how awesome she was in front of our camera. We took one of her images and went all black and white and contrasty, just for fun.

Portland Actor Headshots for Pamela

This is Pamela Fleischmann. She's a Mom and an actor. She's smart and interesting and kind and it's really fun to work with her. If you're looking for a smart actor who's easy to work with (and super nice), then ring up her agency and hire her. You'll be very happy you did.

Tween Modeling Portfolio, Julia Style

We've known Julia for a few years. We met her through DanceWorks, a local studio where we take a lot of pictures. We've spent a few minutes with her shooting headshots for the studio's recital programs and done a few portraits of her in various costumes.

She's a pretty laid back kid so we didn't know what to expect from our first modeling portfolio session. What we got was a kid with a serious game face and a beautiful smile (braces and all), a kid who works great in front of the camera and looks fabulous in everything from jeans to dance gear. And we're pretty sure our shots of her in the beautiful yellow sundress are the definition of porcelain skin.

Thank you, Julia, for an awesome shoot.

Teen Modeling Portfolio, Rock and Roll Attitude

Miss Ayla is a singer, dancer and actor who knows how to rock the photo set. She wanted to do a teen modeling portfolio that covered all the bases, from casual school clothes to a rock and roll leather jacket. We did these three looks for modeling portfolio in our studio using wardrobe she styled herself. Hair and makeup styling by the super-talented Aubree Richins.

Fashion Photography, The Beach and the Sand That Came Home With Us

It's a beautiful, snowy day here in Portland, unusual for this part of the country and worthy of our embrace. Maybe we'll get the kids and the pups and the mittens and galoshes and shoot some fashion photos in the snow. In the meantime, here's some sandy Yin to balance our snowy Yang, a Thursday throwback to our amazing summer shoot with Miss Mya.

ISABELLE - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Child Modeling Photographer

I could tell you this kid's a sweetheart, that she's fearless, that's she adventurous, that she's sassy, that she loves red lipstick, that she was a blast to work with.  But the pictures already tell the story!

HAILEY - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Child Model Dance Photographer

Great pictures always happen when Hailey's in the house. This portfolio has a great range of looks; the shot at the end of the set --  in the black "DANCE" T-shirt -- is our favorite. Such attitude.

ALEX - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Child Modeling Photography

These images were taken a few days ago during our third session with Miss Alex. I can't say I've ever seen eyes quite so deep and penetrating as hers. She's an ambitious kid with the desire to do it all; we had great fun working with her on these beautiful photos.

ANNMARIE - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Dance Photography

These images are from the third dancer session we've done with AnnMarie over the past year or so. She possesses a dedication and determination that underscores tremendous athleticism, all of which we think comes to the fore in these photos.

KACI - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Fashion Photographer

I met Kaci this past spring while doing a fashion shoot with one of her friends. She hired us over the summer to shoot her beautiful senior photos (at the beach!) and again this fall to do some modeling portfolio pictures. Our last session was focused on sports and swim and the results are awesome.

HAILEY - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Child Model Photographer

I love working with this kid. Every time I photograph her, she shows me a different side of her personality. In this shoot, she took the deep red setting and furry black rock and roll jacket and gave me a full dose of mystery (and a little bit of mischief).

ELLIE - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Child Modeling Photographer

These images are from our second shoot with Miss Ellie, which took place at our studio a few weeks ago. She looks a little different than she did a year ago but her sparkling personality has remained true since the day we met. It's a privilege to work with kids like her.

MORGAN - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Child Teen Photographer

I asked Morgan to join us for our shoot on Sunday because I thought she looks really cool. It turns out she IS really cool (and a consummate professional who's been a cover kid for more than a few magazines and catalogs.) Here are some truly wonderful photos of her, just being cool.

ALEX - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Child Model Photograher

I met Alexandra a few years ago while taking program headshots for one of the local dance studios. I was always impressed with her quiet confidence.

I had the pleasure of working with this past August and the results were supercool. So we invited her to join us again this past weekend for a few more fabulous shots.

SIMONE - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Child Model Photography

There's awesome. Then there's five steps above awesome. In that rarified air, you find kids like Simone: beautiful, intelligent, kind and engaging. It's a privilege to work with her and I think these photos are just amazing.
