I had the extraordinary pleasure of photographing Angela Maitland – founder of Quintessential Productions and the Annual Diamond Tea. Angela contacted me to see if I’d be interested in photographing the Diamond Tea this October at the Nines Hotel. I attended last year with my friend Dyana (Thanks Dyana!) so I was absolutely delighted that she wanted me to capture her gorgeous English High Tea! As an extra bonus, I will be an exhibitor this year as well! I’m just a little bit excited. (Notice the exclamation marks)
In case you haven’t heard of the Diamond Tea, please check out their website. It is an annual event that benefits women-in-need nonprofits and childrens’ education. The focus of the tea is celebrating the fire and brilliance of women and networking with fellow female entrepreneurs.
Angela also asked me if I’d photograph her in my studio – she needed a new headshot for her business. Bri Ellis of Portland Makeup and Hair came and gave her the full makeover of course. But we didn’t stop with just the nice teacup holding shot. No, we got out the blow dryer and went the whole nine yards. Angela was so genuine and easy to work with. I am so thrilled with the images that I captured for her. This isn’t my usual boudoir photography, but it’s everything I want my studio to do: Capture the truth and beauty of a woman and turn it into art.
Thank you so much Angela, I am so looking forward to working together more in the future!!
