Mothers Day Tea at Ainsworth House – Oregon City, OR

Posted by Rosemary on May 10th, 2010

Ainsworth-House-Portland What a gorgeous gift the weather gave us for Mothers Day yesterday! We were lucky enough to spend sunny Sunday at the historic Ainsworth House and Gardens in Oregon City, where Earlene Grey, the Empress of Leaves herself, hosted the Inaugural Mothers Day Tea event. Earlene charmed a lovely group of fancily dressed mothers & daughters (even a few gracious husbands!) during the proper English tea with her unique and humorous poetry reading. Guests dined on a delicious teatime lunch whipped up on-site by fabulous Chef Sarah of The Red Hare , and the event even included an appearance by Senator Martha Schrader, who shared her own recent special tea time experience with First Lady Michelle Obama! We also especially enjoyed spending the day with the small group of fellow vendors with whom we set up a little foyer boutique outside the main tea party, including the delightful Marilyn Miller, owner of Marmalady’s – Tea Products to make the heart sing. The Ainsworth House and Gardens was the perfect host for such a decadent occasion, so it comes as no surprise that the enchanted venue is a favorite for local weddings. Last but certainly NOT least, we must give special thanks to our florist & studio neighbor Fieldwork, whose owner Megan Arambul put together the dazzling Mothers Day arrangement that graced our Mon Amour Photography table at the event. For the full Mothers Day Tea spread, head over to the gallery. (more…)

We’ve had the great pleasure of photographing the Chalmers family during Baby B’s adorable first year, and suffice to say, we are the lucky ones! Proud parents Kale & Jennifer said hello to little Baby B and his big blue eyes just over a year ago, and time has just flown by. During our most recent session with the Chalmers trio, we got to celebrate little B’s first birthday! Check out the happy family in the gallery! family-portrait (more…)

Family Photos in Studio – A Great Gift for Dad

Posted by Rosemary on May 2nd, 2010

My beautiful friend Jennifer Roos, the talented interior designer, came to me with a great gift idea for her boyfriend Erik: how about we take new family photos to surprise him with on his birthday? So Jennifer came into the studio with Erik’s three gorgeous kids (big sis Sophie and twin brothers Andy & Corey) and we did just that! Check out the rest of the portrait session in the gallery! teen-photographs (more…)

Family Portraits at home – Portland, OR

Posted by Rosemary on April 26th, 2010

2009 was a big year for return wedding clients with their new little munchkin in tow. I photographed Sara & Gabe’s beautiful wedding at Mt. Hood B&B in 2007 and exactly 2 years later little M came along. Since Sara is also a fabulous photographer, there have been tons of gorgeous photos of M taken but few with mom and dad. In an effort to remedy this situation I was called in to capture this new family at their best. What a sweet family and a great time had by all.
To see all of the images from our session check out the gallery.

Gee Gee's Beautiful Hands – Legacy Portraits – Portland

Posted by Rosemary on February 12th, 2010

I’m starting up a new and wonderful project photographing and telling the stories of senior citizens. Gee Gee is my “test subject” and is such an amazing person to start with. I was working on another project today and I opened up the folder with this photo in it. I was struck by the power of her hands and how they tell a thousand stories all on their own. I wouldn’t photoshop these babies to perfection if you begged! More photographs of Gee Gee and her lovely daughters soon.GeeGee's Hands, Senior Citizen Portraits
