Why I Really Want a Pashmina for Christmas | Portland Commercial Photographer

There is a lovely new company based in Eugene, OR called Pashmina Queens.

Straight from them: "Pashmina Queens is an online store that sells high quality, 90% cashmere and 10% silk, pashminas to women at very affordable prices. We believe that every woman should be able to own as many pashminas as her heart desires in a variety of colors rather than only being able to afford one or two in a basic neutral."

And I was asked to provide them with some beautiful shots for their website! What a big, amazing project this was. I immediately got to work finding the best hair stylist, makeup artists, models, and locations around..and boy, did I find them! The team I got to work with was absolutely incredible and made our big 2-day commercial shoot much more fun than work.

A HUGE thank you to all of our gorgeous models, my trusted hair stylist & makeup artist Aleah, the ever-lovely makeup artist Katy Steele, and my two assistants - beautiful Heidi and handsome husband Zach!

So without further ado, please enjoy the dozens of pashmina colors worn in about 30 different styles....

And for a little change of pace, here we have the beautiful Kim & Bethany!

For Day Two, we moved outdoors to the Pearl District. It was lovely to switch it up and get some more casual looks in the natural lights. Yummy..

These women make pashminas even more appealing than they already are!

....And that's why I want a pashmina for Christmas. :)
