Charlotte is usually quite talkative, but was “shy” in the studio. She also decided not to use any words on this visit. She enjoys exploring with her daddy and loves to eat waffles.

three years old

Seba is three, but almost four years old. On his birthday, he thinks he might go to OMSI. He is a very serious three year old. His hood protects him from things falling on his head, like snow.

casting call: THREE YEARS OLD

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

I’m so excited about our July & August 2011 casting call. I’m looking for Portland THREE YEAR OLDS to photograph in the studio — it’s an age I don’t quite ‘get’ and I’m trying to experiment to see how a three year old responds to the camera and the unnatural situation of going to a studio location.

I don’t care what the kid wears; in fact if s/he dresses herself, ALL THE BETTER! I will be attempting to elicit extremely natural photos, which means no one will be asking your child to smile or pose. If s/he is feeling uncooperative or grouchy, THAT’S OK! We’ll just see what happens.

Photo shoots happen on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons at my studio in SE Portland. Session fee is waived, and your child will probably be featured in some kind of publication (at least blogged). If you want to support us, any files are available to purchase after the session for $20 but of course no purchase is required or expected. It’s all in good fun!

Here’s my first subject, Jude. He’s currently obsessed with ceiling fans and switches, and claims mommy is one year old.

I just got a sweet comment on one of my old wedding blog posts:


“I absolutely adore how refreshing your work is. You take a ho-hum location and make it look extravagant! Love your work and will keep following your site. And thank you for inspiring me.”

Thanks Jessica, I appreciate that you took the time to leave a comment!

Penelope, your photos are ready!
