Bootcamp Bodies!

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on December 22nd, 2010

Daniel Iversen’s amazing Portland Boot Camp for Women, a rigorous, no-nonsense, wildly effective workout program for ladies of all ages, sizes, shapes and experience levels. I’m not the only one who’s had major success at Bootcamp; the amazing Daryn White (pictured here) has lost a whopping 80 pounds thanks to Daniel’s intensive early morning trainings and by sticking to an appropriate diet. The results for all of us Boot Campers have been unilaterally great, with Daryn in particular standing out as one of the year’s greatest success stories. Just look at her! Thanks to the supportive, encouraging and completely non-judgmental environment nurtured by Daniel and his Boot Camp endeavors, we’ve all been able to let go of our fitness hang-ups and truly go for it. I personally have more energy all day long than ever before, despite rising at the crack of dawn (sometimes even an hour or two beforehand!) to whip my butt into shape. For more info on how Daniel runs his fantastic boot camp, check out How It Works. Thanks for whipping us into shape, Daniel!

Baby Portraits – Portland, OR

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on December 21st, 2010

This adorable little one is just too cute for words to do justice, so forgive us while we try. Baby A, the beyond-precious offspring of mama Laken, is one of the cutest babies we have ever photographed, to say the least. She is so full of life and personality and at such a young age, Baby A is an inspiration to us all! Don’t you just want to smoosh her little cheeks and give her hugs and kisses? We can’t resist sharing this adorable little baby with you all, so we hope you enjoy a few of our most precious moments with Baby A.

Men's Health Photography – Portland, OR

Posted by Rosemary on December 21st, 2010

Alton Wise is a local tai-chi guru here in the Ford Building (where we have our studio) who happened down the way one day to see about having some portraits taken. Alton is a survivor of pancreatic cancer, and he wanted some shots taken for submission to Men’s Wellness magazine.

You see, Alton has bounced back beyond all comparable measure, not only beating and surviving pancreatic cancer (one of the worst diagnoses anyone can receive), but looking pretty damn good, too!! Hopefully someday soon we’ll see Alton gracing the cover of every men’s health magazine on the rack!!

Holiday Pet Photography – Portland, OR

Posted by Rosemary on December 13th, 2010

We’re having such a delightfully busy December, with this hilarious holiday pet portrait session just one of the month’s many highlights! Alison and her turtle T-Bone recently came by the studio for a few seasonal portraits, and their session definitely marked the first time we’ve ever photographed a turtle. We couldn’t have asked for a better first time turtle photographing experience! Alison chose this great shot for her holiday cards…we love it! T-Bone the Turtle wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Couples Portraits in the Studio – Portland, OR

Posted by Rosemary on December 13th, 2010

couple-portrait-portlandWe just love shooting couples portraits, especially when the couple is as genuinely meant-for-each-other as the wonderful Samar & Meredith. These two have been together for 14 years! What an inspiration. We first met Meredith through her sister Jennifer, the lovely bride we photographed back in May. Looks like the gene for lovely lovebirds runs in the family!
