Andrea has been a friend and colleague for quite a while now and I am pleased to announce the launch of her virtual assisting firm, Parker Productivity! Andrea is highly organized, has a real love for people and is just a pleasure to be around. She is also highly detail oriented and steadfast when it comes to seeing a project through. All absolutely perfect qualities in a VA! We'll be collaborating on quite a few projects, but today we had a great time grabbing some headshots for her website!
One extra special thing about Andrea is her love and compassion for animals. She founded Friends Fur Real, a non-profit rescue organization to help a variety of animals, primarily pet and retired show rabbits find loving homes I don't think I've ever seen her without some little furry or feathered friend tagging along, and today was no exception! Meet Littles the Duck - who helped herself to a tour of the studio trailer! She also momentarily paused for a portrait :)
Check out Andrea's new site, created by Captivate Creative, at www.parkerproductivity.com!
I had the pleasure of working with Amy Kutzkey and her team at Oak Hill Tax & Accounting! We are also excited to announce that Captivate Creative is onboarding with her services as well. We look forward to an amazing business partnership!
Amy is the most approachable, warm person to meet, and her knowledge of her field is impeccable. She is professional and real, and makes what is sometimes a complex and difficult aspect of business ownership (financials) fun and comfortable.
From their website: Oak Hill Tax and Accounting LLC is a professional corporation built on the cornerstones of Knowledge, Respect, Integrity, and Trust. We firmly believe in these cornerstones and employ them in everything that we do – from our Clients, Consultations, Strategy Sessions, Tax Compliance, and Work Products.

This shoot was one of our favorites so far this year! Sterling is a phenomenal local artist with some breathtaking work! His artistic style is unique and every piece is its own amazing experience of movement and emotion - Sterling has a real talent for capturing essence and feeling in each piece through color, depth, texture and flow.
Working with Sterling was an absolute pleasure - and he's a fellow Art Institute alum!
Follow him on Instagram @sterlsborneart - we sure will!
Well, it's been a LONG time coming, but we've been working hard at a new service that can take mobile portraiture and photography to the next level in the Portland Metro area!
We are announcing our newly remodeled, beautiful 21' fully enclosed trailer studio.
This studio offers simplicity, versatility, safety with pro studio results! Location and scheduling are flexible and easy - all we need is a place to park or to find a nearby spot! We arrange a meeting place and time, and boom - studio is open.
Whether you're just needing a few headshots or an entire product line, or maybe a headshots booth at your company event, this is a one-stop solution to meet all needs. And, more importantly, in 2020 it offers a completely new approach to studio photography that offers social distancing and additional safety precautions. The trailer, when open, provides plenty of fresh air ventilation and offers more than enough space for at least 10' of social distancing. The photographer enters through the back, and never crosses paths with the subject. We have also installed hand sanitizing stations and have gloves and masks readily available. We are committed to creating the safest environment possible for everyone involved*.
Interested in learning more about this new approach? We'd love to chat. Call (503) 502-6814 or email email@example.com.
* Covid-19 is still largely unknown and we will create the safest environment possible, but cannot guarantee a zero chance of infection. Please stay safe and make informed decisions. Learn more here.
I had the pleasure of taking Mihaela's headshots right before the stay in place orders began, and she was a delight to work with! She has a big heart for people, has been a facemask-making warrior at home this past couple months, and I'd recommend her without hesitation!

As Washington County (and some surrounding counties) moves into Phase One, Captivate Creative will be offering limited services which can be practiced with social distancing and safety to both ourselves and our customers. Your safety is our priority, and, in some cases, the project may need to be delayed until such time as we can safely move forward. We are actively working on innovative ways to provide all services with the ability to social distance and minimize contact. In our personal time, we have been fully isolated and following stay in place orders carefully. If anyone with whom we have been in contact reflects Covid-19 symptoms, we will self isolate and discontinue services until such time that we can say we are not a risk.
We can accomplish outdoor headshots and photography, indoor photography when locations allow plenty of social distance and optimally ventilation, product photography and more while still doing our utmost to provide a safe environment.
We are continually monitoring the situation and will responsibly back off any activity if contagion risks change in our area or if we have any new concerns. In the meantime, stay safe out there and please reach out if we can be of help! We are here to discuss marketing strategy, plan later shoots and more - all consultations are complimentary.
When we do schedule, you'll see us arrive with PPE and all equipment will be sanitized and kept out of the way. Please let us know what we can do to help you feel safe as well!
Owner, Captivate Creative
We try our best to give back to the community by offering partnerships and enhancing brand awareness for causes close to our heart. Fighting Pretty is an amazing and unique organization filling a spot desperately needed in the lives of incredibly strong women battling cancer.
From their website:
We empower women battling cancer
Fighting Pretty sends "Pretty Packages" which are donated care packages intended to empower women battling all types of cancer, at any stage of treatment to feel strong, beautiful and fierce through their fight with cancer. Each Pretty Package includes donated cosmetics, inspirational items and our iconic mini pink boxing gloves.
We send strength
Every Pretty Package includes a pair of mini pink boxing gloves. When founder, Kara Skaflestad was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 26, she was given a pair by her best friend's mom (another survivor) and they hung on Kara’s bedpost every day as a reminder to stay strong and fight!
When Kara's fight was "over," she passed them on to another fighter, who also passed them on. The mini pink boxing gloves are a reminder to every woman battling cancer to never give up. And when she is ready to pass on her strength, she can pass her mini pink boxing gloves on too.
