Category Archives: Commercial Work

So I don’t normally shoot “head-shots” and I limit my commercial shoots to products and services for mammas or kids. Sarah Jane Nelson makes fabulous hand stamped jewelry for her business Life is Rosey. I bought one of her custom pieces for my MIL this Christmas and it was a HUGE hit! Her hubby Rene is an actor and an acting coach who teaches acting to both children, teens and adults. You may remember this family form their gorgeous family shoot in a local pear orchard here.

Well this family moved today to California and Ashland is going to really miss them. We will miss their kids Rosey and Mateo (who my daughter calls Potato), their singing, their acting and just having around. But we are super happy that they will be back some this summer for Green Shows! Here are a few of of my favorites from their head shot sessions. There were so many (I think we picked out over 100 images all together to retouch!). Enjoy!

Sarah Jane, thanks for being one of the first people to welcome me to the valley, never making fun of the way I saw “ya’ll” and introducing me to my favorite local restaurant! 🙂 Best Wishes!

A few weeks ago while out with Autumn, we stopped at the cutest cupcake shop in Talent, Oregon, called The Cupcake Daily (Click to find them on Facebook:). We shared a Mint Chocolate Cupcake and it was SO yummy! After talking to the owner and finding out they were relatively new and a sweet little family operation and needed some photography, I was instantly interested! I don’t really have a lot of food photography experience, but it was something new and fun to do. Last week I set up on a table in the shop and shot several different flavors and then my little Josiah and Autumn and one of their friends came in to enjoy some of their “create your own” cupcakes. The kids love being able to choose a blank cupcake and add fillings, icing, and toppings. They couldn’t have been more happy.

I can’t wait to do Autumn’s birthday cupcakes here! If you are in the area be sure to check them out, they also serve a yummy breakfast and lunch and their Facebook Page can tell you what specialty flavors they have each day!

There Smore’s Cupcake is to die for! It has tiny little graham cracker crust, melted chocolate, marshmallow creme (which the toast, not pictured) and it is just amazing!

Notice Josiah in the black and white on the bottom row, doing a “happy dance” for getting a cupcake “with marsh-mewows.”
