Rachel’s work is featured on the Joyful Mammas website

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

A couple of months ago I did a studio shoot for Bridgit Danner, who wanted real photos of real mammas for her health program website. It’s a nice change from all the coaching programs that use generic stock photography, don’t you think? I really like the way she cycles different photos in the upper right hand corner.  I enjoyed working with all of the families who came in for the shoot; it was a crazy day at the studio.


Check out Joyful Mammas. The site features my portraits of local Portland Oregon families:

If you click on the image above, you’ll go to the page with a signup for her teleclass scheduled this week. On Thursday, March 1 at 12:00pm PST, Bridgit will be giving a free talk about Diet & Fertility. Since being pregnant, everyone always talks to me about fertility stuff so I thought I would put this out there for any readers around the country (or world!) who might be interested in more information about how diet can affect your ability to make babies. 🙂


Joyful Mammas is a comprehensive natural health program designed to achieve pregnancy. We carefully assess your medical history and health habits, and design an individualized plan for you and your partner. We then give you tools and support, and monitor progress to adjust as needed until baby is well established!

Recent Press that Features Rachel’s Portrait Work

Friday, December 16th, 2011

My musicians have been busy being famous this holiday season!

Vocalist and Resonance Ensemble Managing Director Stephanie Kramer was featured in this nice piece in Oregon Music News: Life as a Professional Choral Singer.


“Singing, and all of the experiences that come along with it, is one of the greatest joys of my life.”

 One of my luminous portraits of Kathy FitzGibbon is used on the Lewis & Clark news piece here. It looks great in context.

Portland Photographer Kersten Green and her family came by the studio for a visit last month. If you’re looking for really beautiful outdoor portraits of your kids, Kersten is a wonderful choice. Check out her site here.

Idiot or Genius?

I did a little studio shoot for local Portland company Idiot or Genius. We got some funny, quirky little photos for them with my friends Oscar and Cadence and Aryanna and Kaety. I hope IoG sells more from their kids line (but they also do some very “adult” work with show posters and other screenprint designs as well).

Right now their eponymous t-shirt is a top seller.

They also have some very Portland, and some subtly political stuff as well:

You should check out their stuff! I’m trying to get them to list these t-shirts up on their etsy page asap to accommodate the rush of orders after you all fall in love with their quirky, brilliant work.
