The Olmstead’s | Part 2 | Portland, Oregon Photography

I’m excited to finally post Part 2 of The Olmstead shoot – in video form.  In addition to being cute on film, the Olmstead crew delivered the cute on video as well.   The plan was to capture tons of video footage the day-of, but while editing I realized that we didn’t have enough to keep up with the music track I wanted to use (“Sneeuwland” by Oskar Schuster).

That’s where mom Kelly’s iphone videos came in… and they don’t need any explaining.  

Where the Wild Things are | Part 1 | Portland, Oregon Photography

When it comes to sleepovers at Casa di Uncle Pete and Aunt Lins… we have a lot of fun.

This “Where the Wild Things are” inspired day was no exception – we picked up the niece and nephew in their pajamas, properly outfitted them with their royal garb and ventured into the mysterious land of The Wildwood.  The little prince and princess crossed moats, bridges and rough terrain to finally claim their rightful throne at the end of the winding wooded trail. They hid from undercover woodsmen and listened for special messages sent from the birds through the trees – looking around for the hidden beasts.

Oh the joys of childhood…. (and adulthood — can’t say I wasn’t playing along.)

Stay tuned for Part 2

Pretty Textiles | Portland, Oregon Photography

I did some fabric hunting last weekend and found some real gems.  Check out this lovely chunky table linen from the thrift store – I think I’m going to use it for a summer throw.  No point in subjecting this beauty to food spillage on the table.

Leftover gingham from our wedding tablecloths  =  recycled bow tie gold.  I tried to get Pete to wear it to work… no success yet… BUT SOON- Mabye. Come on… with a chambray shlubby shirt and some burnt orange pants & adidas high tops? Yes please.  Want to make your own bow tie?  Free bow tie pattern curtesy of Angela Osborne from the land down under.

Stay tuned for some gauzy wedding dress fabric from Portland Garment Factory turned children’s dreamy play capes in my next post.  I was lucky enough to catch PGF’s fabric sale they hold every 2 years, and got some goodies for less than $1 a yard on the bolt.

Kids in the Hood

I love a lot of things about Portland, but one of the things I love most is the cool people that live here (and their cool kids).  My neighborhood park is no exception. Now, first rule of this post – if you want to know the easiest way to look like a total creep, follow my steps below:

1.)  Go to local park with camera

2.)  Ask parents to take pictures of their kids

I know… total creep.  But if you know me, you know I have no shame really and there were some special conditions here.  The sun came out of the clouds 30 minutes before sunset {for the first time I think all winter in Portland} and I couldn’t help myself — look at these kids and you will understand.

The Southard’s | Portland, Oregon Family Photography

Get ready… because this post is out of control. Out of control on a lot of different levels.

1.) Gorgeous family
2.) Tiny houses made of cardboard for baby L
3.) I could have taken a whole days worth of photos of cute home decor
4.) Young parenthood at it’s finest… as told through the lens of sophie the giraffe. Can you spot Sophie?
5.) A lot of kids get bounced in the air by dad but Baby L gets some serious air time
6.) Apparently posts with 60+ pictures is going to be my norm… but I can’t help this..I’m spinning out… too much cuteness.

I was so lucky to spend the day with these 3 awesome folks  <3 Enjoy!

Saturday with Dad’s old Nikon FG, Alberta Street, Portland Oregon

I got up last Saturday and I couldn’t wait to shoot my dad’s old Nikon FG for the first time. I solicited my husband Pete and our dogs Roscoe and Indie for a little walk-turned photo shoot on Alberta Street here in Portland Oregon. It was noon when Pete – who, did i mention is a great sport? – reminded me that we hadn’t eaten breakfast or even had a cup of coffee/ tea yet. How time flies when you are having fun behind the old nikon FG. After a little breakfast at Anna Bannana’s coffee we continued down an always interesting Alberta street. Photos include stops at Bolt Fabric, Townshends Tea, Tonali’s Donuts and Salt and Straw Ice Cream Shop … all great spots if you are coming to visit portland anytime soon.

Enjoy!
