Cake Smash

The “Cake Smash” trend is all the rage for 1st birthday parties.

Simply set a birthday cake in front on 1 year old and let them eat cake on their own terms.  Typically there is a bit of hesitation at first as the one year old takes in the large colorful object placed in front of them.  Then, after even the littlest taste, it’s all over from there.  Cake ends up everywhere and the photos are truly priceless.

We recently held a cake smash photo session at the studio and produced this collage print for the parents to hang in their home.  How fun!

Madison

Madison is wildly talented, extremely ambitious, and possesses an undying passion for music.  She sings regularly and has performed the National Anthem at Portland Timber’s games at Jeld-Wen Field, the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field, and many others including the Daytona International Speedway in Florida.  Madison has also competed on the television show American Idol.

Our paths crossed a year or so ago at an event and I recently had an opportunity to capture some new professional headshots for her at the studio.  Madison was looking for something a bit looser and more casual in style.  Here are a few of our favorites from the recent headshot session:

Amy & Paul | Engagement Session

Amy & Paul opted for a fun afternoon/evening in downtown Portland for their engagement session.  They love Portland, especially at night, and wanted to capture some signature locations throughout the city including some of the twinkling lights.

We began the session at PSU, the exact location where they originally met, and where Paul proposed to Amy. We walked over to the Park Blocks and captured some images by the Portland Art Museum as well.  Then, as the sun began to set, a quick outfit change was in order as we hit some key locations throughout the Portland area.

Among our many stops, we made sure to visit the Portland Center for the Performing Arts, the iconic Portland sign on Broadway, and of course the Portland skyline from the east side.

The time of day that one chooses for an engagement session drastically alters the look and feel of any location.  Amy & Paul’s evening engagement session is such a fun way to combine a location along with a unique time of day to capture portraits.  I love that they opted for something different and came away with images of the two of them enjoying each other and the city that they love so much at night.
