Pregnancy Portraits – Portland

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on July 15th, 2011


The arrival of a new baby is such an exciting time in life. I couldn’t be more happy for my dear friends Amy and Jason about the pending arrival of their little one! In celebration of this time in their lives Amy and I got together in my studio to put together a collection of pregnancy portraits and to document the evidence of this little munchkin’s presence on earth. Mom, Dad and adorable big brother Oscar will be such a wonderful and loving family for this lucky baby to join! Congratulations!!!


Newborn Baby Photography – Portland

Posted by Rosemary on September 10th, 2010

A few years ago I had the pleasure of photographing Bob and Carrie’s wedding. Recently, they were blessed with a healthy bouncing baby girl and I couldn’t wait to get to their house to see the little cutie! She is not only totally ADORABLE but she was in a great mood and seemed to enjoy being our little model. We’re so excited to help her parents announce her arrival to the world. Note the karate chop photo, I think she’s going to be a tough cookie.
Congratulations Bob and Carrie!
Don’t miss the sweet slideshow I put together of our session.

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…)

muse-art-store-owner The May issue of ID Magazine isn’t on stands until May 5, but we’ve got your first glimpse at next month’s feature article on Muse Art+Design. We had the great pleasure of photographing owner Peter Rossing on his colorful turf at the Muse store, located at 4224 SE Hawthorne Blvd. in Portland. Though Muse has only been in business for a relatively short time, Peter has quickly established himself as a prominent figure in both the business and arts communities thanks to the full range of quality art supplies at Muse Art+Design, along with affordable prices, and friendly, knowledgeable service. muse-art-store Can’t wait to see the whole story in the June issue of ID!

Family & Newborn Portraits at home – Portland

Posted by Rosemary on April 14th, 2010

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of joining Beth, Daniel and their little ones at their home for a portrait session. I got to see all sorts of toys and big brother got to show off the best new toy of all… a little sister! (Eventually he’ll see it that way, right?) We were even lucky enough to get some photos with Grandma. I love being a part of the welcome wagon for sweet little newborn babies. Daniel and Beth are the masterminds behind Portland’s Adventure Boot Camp for Women, which rocks. Watch the slideshow of my favorite images. And check out the gallery to see all of the images from our session.
Congratulations on the fabulous addition to your gorgeous family!
