Family Portrait Contest Winner

Family Portrait Contest Winner

A big congrats to Chea Lamb, who is the winner of our family portrait contest!!! Have fun on your $300 shopping spree, Chea~

I tell you the judging was stressful, there were just so many stunning images...it was so hard for us to choose and we hate the thought of disappointing anyone. What did we love about this portrait? Well, it was totally unique. We loved the concept, the posing, and the post production. We also thought it was a very timely image...Chea mentioned that this family used their portrait for their holiday card and the text read, "Times are Hard... wishing an apple in every tree and a chicken in every pot." (Other shots had mom, in the red top, holding a chicken.) And, although we did not know it at the time of judging, Chea later mentioned the post production was with Design Aglow's True Antique Blend 3, dusty frame. Awesome! A HUGE thank you to all our readers who submitted over 300 entries to our contest...we were slightly overwhelmed, in a good way of course! We will announce the runner's up's names tomorrow, right here. Melissa Olson won our monthly comment drawing for a $150 shopping spree in the DesignAglow shop! We love to hear from our fantastic readers...so keep commenting and we will have another winner soon~

As a lifelong fine artist, I didn’t fall in love with photography until post-college. I was a graphic design major who landed a non-creative position in the industry. Upon searching for a creative outlet, and being the hopeless romantic that I am, I discovered wedding photography and was immediately hooked. I poured everything I had into learning the medium so that I could eventually start my own business, which happened a couple of years later in 2012 — also the year I was married.

I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Portland, but catering to clients across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. As a child, I never imagined that I would pursue photography. I didn’t even own a DSLR until I was 21! However, I remember the day I decided I wanted to learn the ins and outs of photography. I used my college textbook money to buy my first Canon Rebel from Craigslist. I was jumping up and down with joy and scratching my head at the same time because I knew photography would not be simply a hobby.

I was born and raised in Southern California, and recently moved to Oregon with my husband. We just had our first baby and are so in love! I’ve always had an interest in art and have always wanted to pursue a career in a creative field. I took my first photography class in high school, and fell in love. My parents bought me my first camera for graduation and I decided to get my degree in photography. Toward the end of college, I was blessed with an internship with a wedding photographer where I was able to turn my formal education into a practical business. After lots of shadowing, second shooting, and promoting my work, business started coming in and eventually evolved into what it is today!
