Modern Domestic | Portland, Oregon Retail Photography

I had the pleasure of shooting recently at Modern Domestic, an AMAZING sewing studio on Alberta Street in Northeast Portland.  I took a sewing class with a few other ladies, taught by the studio’s co-owner, Lupine  (pronounced Lupin, like in Harry Potter – the coolest name I’ve ever heard).    Lupine, her cool energy and her fleet of Bernina’s  (the ‘creme de la creme’ of sewing machines – made by the swiss) made machine sewing really easy and approachable.  I sewed with my grandmother’s sewing machine off and on since college but always reverted back to hand when I had some mechanical issues.  With just a few simple tips, I have walked out of Modern Domestic with a pillow, a weekend bag and soon to be a chambray skirt.   The ladies at modern domestic also know how to dress a retail space.  You could spend an hour in this place just looking at all of their neato things, including their mini presser foot museum {!!!!!!!}

Enjoy!
