Tis the Season! Local Gift Ideas from Souchi – NW Portland

Posted by Rosemary on December 7th, 2010


Nestled among the many lovely storefronts that line NW 23rd Avenue, Souchi is at the top of our list for the very best places to shop in Portland. Owned and operated by designer Suzi Johnson, Souchi is the destination for only the best in simple luxury. We recently had the privilege of photographing Souchi’s current offerings, showcasing Suzi’s own magnificent, locally made knitwear along with a few of the store’s many hand-picked pieces from famed international designers. The Souchi look is sexy, modern, stylish and comfortable, with each garment made from sustainable materials of the highest quality. Suzi personally hand picks her yarns at the finest mills in Europe. She knits pieces made from cashmere, organic cotton, cotton stretch, and cotton/cashmere blends, practicing eco-friendly business and design in every facet of Souchi operations. Alas, it came is no surprise when Souchi’s Spring 2011 collection was chosen to unveil at finale runway show this year in Portland Fashion Week.

Santa shops Souchi too, and not just for mom and sis! Suzi’s remarkable collection of treasures has something for everyone on your list, with hand knit pieces for women and men alike, plus special pieces for baby and original touches for home like cashmere napkins, table runners, and luxurious blankets. Don’t just take our word for it – the next time you’re strolling down NW 23rd Ave. in the spirit of giving, drop in and experience Souchi for yourself. Give the gift of Souchi and you’ll have a friend for life!

A favorite from Dayna & Ember’s Wedding In Los Angeles

Posted by Rosemary on December 6th, 2010

Have I mentioned lately how much I love my job? Well, I do. This weekend I went down to LA to photograph the wedding of these lovely ladies. It was AMAZING. I had so much fun, the wedding was beyond gorgeous. This is my first favorite image that really stood out to me. There will be many more to come soon.

Seasonal Family Portraits – Portland OR

Posted by Rosemary on December 3rd, 2010

This fall has been so fruitful for us when it comes to family portraits. We’re so thankful for happy families and our beautiful local landscape! The Kmiec family met us out on Sauvie Island at Kruger’s Farm a while back for a family portrait session, with little baby V taking center stage for much of the time. (How could she not? She is just SO adorable!)

We love Wade! He was so fun and easy to work with. The natural performer in him made it easy for me to get great expressions too.
