Columbia Gorge Artists
Presenting work by fiber artist AND jewelry designer, Heather Marlow - tapestry by fiber artist Joyce Marlow - fiber/multimedia piece by artist Melody Robinshaud...
I have recently had the privilege of working with these talented and amazing local artists - I just love getting a "sneak peek" on new work to be displayed in upcoming exhibits and open studio tours! With the artists' permission, I'm sharing my favorite pieces with you here. Look for all of them soon at the Columbia Gorge Art Center's Art Gallery and the Gorge Artists' Open Studios on May 2nd and 3rd, 2010.
Photographing an artist's work is more than mere documentation - I consider it a collaboration with the artist to portray that particular piece as they themselves see it. (Hope that doesn't sound too "artsy-fartsy", but it's the truth! lol...) Artists, if you're reading this, you don't have to go to Portland to have your work professionally photographed or settle for mere snapshots of your art! Please give me a call at 541-436-2755 for more information.

Happy Valentine's Day!
I had a wonderful session the other day, maternity sessions being one of my very favorite type of session to shoot - it seems very appropriate to post these images on the day we celebrate LOVE!
Cecy is due in May and I can hardly wait for her to bring her brand new daughter to the studio for newborn portraits! Yes, they know it's going to be a girl - and they are naming her after the Aztec Goddess of Beauty, how cool is that?! (don't ask me to spell it just yet - I need more practice...)
