new work for Pok Pok PDX

I have been shooting for pok pok since he very beginning and it remains one of my favorite restaurants to shoot.  It's really cool to see how such simple yet amazingly delicious dishes have ever so slightly evolved over the years.












just me and my lady. drinking wine. catching crabs.

One of my new years resolutions is to be a bit more proactive with my blog.  I had planned on posting this weeks ago.  Here are a few more shots from our birthday weekend back in November,  with my best gal and my best client!   









Bar Casa Vale website is now live


Ive been having a blast documenting the beginnings of Bar Casa Vale from the buildout thru opening day.   Its really a beautiful spot with a talented crew.   Check it out soon.   For those initiated,  its literally in the parking lot behind  Simpatica.   Site was built by my incredibly talented web gal,  Katie Schmit.

Boiled Crabs, New Friends, Bluegrass & Cans o' Wine... in no particular order


Whats better on a Friday night than making some new friends,  eating a crab boil,  listening to some bluegrass music and downing a few cans of Union wine?   

I happened upon an epic collaboration between Tournant and Serenade last week and had the pleasure of documenting some of the fun.    Definitely check out future dinners by all these folks.  Always guaranteed to be a blast.














New Ladybug Chocolates website is Live

A few months ago i had the pleasure of meeting,  working for and then drinking martinis with Bob Dye, all around radical dude and  owner of Ladybug Chocolates,  based down in Canby.   We did a bunch of studio shots and i even went down to his shop to meet the team and see the process.   Its an amazing local company and definitely worth checking out.   I'd say take the drive down to Canby,  but with their newly retooled website (chock full of stunning photography...)  you can get it without leaving the comfort of the couch.   Check em out HERE.  The chocolate covered graham crackers are Banana Sandwich good!!!
