A little over a month ago I had the pleasure of attending a get together with some other Portland area Children’s Photographers. Fun ladies for sure. We all belong to the same photography forum and try to help each other our from time to time. I just love working with other photographers. I think it is the best way to learn and stretch my self as an artist to be surrounded by so many creative people.
So in the beginning of June we trekked out to a random location one of the ladies knew of and took some really fun photos.
This location is not your normal family setting. I just love all the graffiti and wild colors. I am pretty sure all the skater kids that usually rule the area thought we were all crazy taking our small children out there. But we are all geeks that love to find those out there crazy places, even if we do have to dodge skate boards and construction to get the shot.
No really here are a few of me in action another photographer friend took of me.
I am not sure if this is a location I would take a client to, as it is pretty rough but I do LOVE the non traditional. If you or someone you know is looking for some FUN and non traditional family or kids portraits call me soon. My summer schedule is starting to fill up, but I am always up for that next cool location. As a Family and Kids photographer in the Portland area I know there are even more great spots out there. If you have a great spot let me know! If it is really great I might even throw in a free 10×13 with a booked session to the client (new or returning) who lets me in on the secret. It does not have to be a graffiti covered wall, it can be a cool mural in a back ally, a building with some great stained glass, or even a over look of the perfect view of a city. So email or call me today, if I love the location it just might be the back drop of your next wall hanging! Happy location hunting!
