Bring on the Baroque!!

The Wildwood Consort
Portland, OR

We recently had the pleasure of photographing the Wildwood Consort, a wonderful Portland-based Renaissance and Baroque trio complete with a flutist, a string player (lute, theorbo, bass and 
violin), and soprano singer - our beloved Mel.  The highlight of the photo shoot was when the group performed together,  music echoing through the studio, as we captured action shots. We're looking forward to seeing Wildwood perform on a big stage!

Mel's Studio Portrait Session

Erin met Mel at a musical performances for the The Julian's all-women singing group (Mel is one of the group's talented singers).  Erin was immediately drawn to her confidence and personality.  Not long after the performance, Mel contacted Erin. It turns out that in addition to her musical career, Mel is the owner of a local business (Counterpoint Data Services ) and was looking for updated headshots to represent both of her seemingly opposite worlds. Enter Parallel Photography. 

Our goal was to create photographs that projected Mel's professionalism, along with her beauty and personality.  With her performing background, it wasn't a difficult task!  Thank you Mel for your support of our small business.  It has been a joy working with you!
