New Custom Packaging

We love the new look of our sleek contemporary packaging for our portrait clients.  A favorite image is printed on the disc and packaged in a sturdy tin case that ships safely and securely.  We just wrapped up the edit of Baby Carter’s newborn session and will be shipping the disc of images in tomorrow’s mail!

Baby Carter

Jenny & Clayton welcomed their newborn son into the world on June 15, 2011.  Baby Carter weighed 7 pounds and measured 21 inches.  Just weeks ago, we photographed Jenny’s maternity session so it was such a treat to meet Carter so quickly.  He arrived a few weeks early, just in time to enjoy the summer!

We setup in the couple’s home to do Carter’s first photo session.  Mom and dad have been busily working away on the house getting it ready for Carter, and with his early arrival, dad has had to put in some extra hours to get everything completed.  We photographed in Jenny & Clayton’s newly remodeled kitchen, the recently finished fun room downstairs, as well as Carter’s beautiful bedroom.

Congratulations to Jenny & Clayton!  We look forward to seeing Carter at 6 and 12 months for his Baby’s First Year photo sessions.

Barclay Event Rentals

As many of you know, The Bridal Loft held their 10th Anniversary celebration last month.  It was a huge success and we are so thankful to all the vendors who made it possible.  Barclay Event Rentals went over the top and granted us access to tents, an incredible dance floor, bistro tables, and much much more.  We wanted to show our thanks by crashing their  showroom and providing all of their employees some delicious home cooked Hawaiian fare along with some Hawaiian entertainment by the O.H.A.N.A. Foundation.  It was a very fun event and the food was absolutely fabulous.

For those of you who have not been by the Barclay Event Rentals showroom, make sure to check it out.  The family owned and operated event rental company has an extensive inventory that meets any event or wedding need.  Their customer service is top notch and we highly recommend them for any rental needs.  The Barclay Event Rentals team showcases a number of table designs which are changed out regularly.  Each time you visit, you will see a new and different design idea.

Atikah & Shehab’s Wedding Celebration

Atikah & Shehab were married on May 29, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.  However, unlike American weddings which typically last for a day, traditional Indian weddings are celebrated over the course of many days.  The wedding ceremony and festivities are often hosted by the bride’s family with subsequent wedding celebrations hosted by the groom’s family.  These additional celebrations are known as walima.  With Atikah’s family in Los Angeles, the wedding ceremony occurred in California and with Shehab’s family in Portland, walima was celebrated in Oregon.  We had the privilege of documenting 2 separate evenings of walima.  The first night was a party for the women (in celebration of the bride) where many close friends and family attended.  The second evening included many more guests where speeches were given and the union of Atikah & Shehab was celebrated in grand style.

The wedding celebrations took place at The Governor Hotel, one of our favorite locations in downtown Portland.  Atikah’s make up was provided by Katherine from Event Cosmetics.  Mike Piper from An Affair to Remember provided the floral and Eric from Hybrid Moon provided cinematography coverage.  Thank you to all the vendors for making the event a huge success and thank you to Atikah & Shehab for the privilege of documenting your wedding celebrations.
