Many small business owners choose to combine their healing session with a branding session. I’ve worked with life coaches, photographers, marketing experts, other healers, and designers who’ve resonated with healing and presence in their businesses. Healing/branding sessions are effective for folks who want to be more openhearted and personal in their brand messaging.
David Wagstaff is the former assistant head of school and one of the English teachers for Northwest Academy, the school I used to attend and then worked at. Wagstaff (what his students have always called him) is about to publish a book of short stories called Pollen. He’s also a tai chi master and obviously a natural born model. Wagstaff and I had a great time taking his new author photos at The Fields Park in the Pearl in downtown Portland. What I love about Fields is that there are so many options for backdrops: different colors, textures, and lighting. Enjoy and contact me here to set up a headshot session - The Fields Park is the perfect place for it!
I had the recent pleasure of recreating Northwest Academy’s marketing campaign! Northwest Academy is a private middle and high school located in downtown Portland. I attended and graduated from Northwest Academy. A couple years later, I went to work there as a middle school supervisor. I absolutely loved my job there and took a lot of photos of the students while I was there. Many of the photos I took became a part of Northwest Academy’s marketing, so it was so fun to go back and do it all over again. Thank you to my old school and workplace for having me back. I love being around everyone there!
The International Rose Test Garden is the perfect place for all sorts of photo sessions right now: branding, family, couples, healing… really everything! I had a lovely time photographing Katrin among the roses. Katrin has been a massage therapist for over twenty years, and recently began her journey as a life coach. She hired me to freshen up her vibe for her website and social. Enjoy the photos! Book your session by clicking here.
I love photographing Jeana Edelman’s beautiful necklaces. They make me feel so sparkly and beautiful and femme! Yesterday I made several self-portraits for Jeana’s marketing to show off her gorgeous work. I hope you love them! This is the work I’m most passionate about. If you resonate with this work and want some airy femme images for your marketing (they don’t have to be of me - they could be of you or anyone - or anything - you choose!), contact me by clicking here.

I love kids because they’re so honest. While it can be difficult to get adults to express themselves in front of the camera, kids always do. They haven’t built up a wall yet. They aren’t afraid.
I meditated with Ryder today for MLK Day. Mondays are the day I get together with a meditation company I work with (my fabulous mom is the owner of that company!) - go check them out here: www.sdgmeditation.com.
I took a few quick shots of Ryder in our event space. He whistles when he meditates. It’s the best.
Enjoy the photos! Remember - I work with small business owners to create colorful, on-brand imagery for their websites. If you’re interested in working with me, please reach out! I’d love to hear from you and learn about your business.
