Modern Elegance

This project is very near and dear to my heart.  Not only are the owners beautiful people whom I can now claim as friends, but their food is simply exquisite.  After 21 years and numerous accolades,  I am truly honored and humbled to have had a hand in giving this renowned restaurant a fresh new look.  

I had the opportunity to once again work with the brilliant Crosby Dove as we documented the new look of Paley's Place Restaurant.  As usual, there are almost too many great shots and so I would like to share a few extras here,  as well as some behind the scenes pictures (including "befores") taken on my iPhone.


Back in 2012 we had the fantastic opportunity to do a little pro-bono design work, helping to transform the new offices of the McKenzie River Gathering Foundation.  MRG, as they are commonly known, is a great foundation working at the grassroots level to fund social change here in Oregon.

From their website: "MRG funding supports the most strategic work unfolding at the local level to address globalization, poverty, war, racism and environmental destruction. We currently provide well over half a million dollars in funding to progressive organizations a year." 

Despite having a teeny budget, we were able to create a really fun, creative, and colorful space that most definitely better represent the energy and passion the members of MRG put into their work. 

More photos from our NW Queen Anne shoot.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with the talented Crosby Dove of Dove Photo on several projects now, and every time I have been so pleased with his work, his attitude, and his attention to detail.  I can't speak highly enough about my experience with Crosby!

Not wanting to bog down the main site with too many photos, I thought I might share a few more images that came out of the NW Queen Anne shoot.
