OPAL - Portland, OR an Vancouver, WA Teen Modeling Portfolio

Some kids just have charisma and this girl, who worked with us for the first time at our March Fun & Fashion event, has enough charm and personality for 10 people. She's a dancer and an actor and, most important, an awesome young lady. We just love the range of personality we see in these pictures. Thanks, Opal, for working with us!

MICAELA - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Senior Pictures

We know Micaela because we know her cousin Kylie, for whom we've done headshots a few times. We took these senior pictures at Reed College this past fall  (and almost got in trouble!) and now we get to unveil them to the world! A super fun shoot with an awesome girl (and some great colors). We're booking senior pictures starting NOW, so hit us up!

MYA - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Kids Modeling Portfolios

Mya is one of my favorite models. She's enthusiastic and energetic and amazingly athletic. She looks great in every style of clothes and every time we work together, we have a blast. These awesome shots are from a Fun & Fashion session we did last fall (with some even newer images from the sports fields coming soon).

DARCY - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Modeling Portfolio Photography

The Mom of one of my favorite models decided she wanted to get in on the action. We brought in our ace stylist, Rachel Christensen, put up a backdrop or two and just had a blast making some beautiful pictures. Now Mom has a portfolio -- as every Mom should! -- and we get to show off a bunch of amazing pictures. Thank you Darcy for a great day.

ALEXYS - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Modeling Photos

We worked with Alexys for the first time about three years ago when she and her Mom dialed us up about a modeling portfolio (and we got in trouble for shooting on the railroad platform!)

We connected again this past summer for her senior pictures and then did an awesome shoot this winter at our Rockstar Session debut. It's easy math: gorgeous girl + cool clothes + plus nice light + eyes to die for = amazing pictures. We can't wait to work with her again!

CHLOE - Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA Modeling Headshots

"Been too Busy too Blog."

What a great problem to have; we're grateful for the amazing amount of work we've been doing lately! But, seriously, we really need to be more diligent in sharing some of the beautiful stuff being done by kids from Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA, don't you think?. 

This kiddo's from the Washington side, where we grow 'em smart and strong and full of life. We met Miss Chloe a few years back at a local dance studio and were reintroduced recently by the fine folks at Sports and Lifestyle Unlimited. Those SLU people are sharp: they recognized Chloe to be the smart, sparkling kid you see in these pictures.

Do you need a new headshot? We'll make you look smart and sparkling too ... and we'd love to meet you.

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.

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.
