Ready for a new kind of photo studio experience?
Look no further. Our seasoned photographer Kim Campbell has made a name for herself crafting personalized and relaxed commercial and family portrait photography sessions for folks from around the globe. She gives her clients a photo session and products unlike anything they’ve experienced before. Starting with a complimentary planning session at the Craftsman-style Campbell Salgado Studio, Kim takes notes of all the things that make a family’s personal style unique. Not only can clients pick from over 25 custom crafted backgrounds for either the indoor or outdoor shooting spaces, but they can select a marked photography style running the gamut from artsy to candid to formal.

In fact, at our Portland photo studio we've got 4 different types of experiences to choose from. Original Portraits™ are the studio’s signature photos, the hallmark product of Campbell Salgado. Vignettes™ brings the camera on location to home spaces or favorite spots in PDX. And for those seeking something truly singular, Campbell transforms clients – of all ages – into fine art with El Corazon™. Last but not least Foto Playground™ – aka selfie heaven – is for the DIY set, who get to take their own photos using the studio’s pro camera, backdrop, lighting and fantastical props.
On the day of the session, any returning client (and there are many) would advise the uninitiated to just sit back and allow the photo experience to unfold. One that veers widely away from forced smiles in front of the family mantlepiece. With a child-at-heart photo assistant guaranteed to make giggles erupt from children, parents are free to relax and enjoy this coveted time with their family. “Furry family members are always welcome too, whether it’s your Uncle Dennis or your labradoodle Peaches,” emphasizes Kim Campbell. A private garden and studio spaces gives people the opportunity to truly be themselves with no lookyloos watching.
After much anticipation, clients return to the studio a week later for the most entertaining multimedia experience, starring their loved ones. Kleenexes, wine and craft brews are provided. Designing the most creative arrangements with these newly minted portraits is the next focus. “We want people to leave with an original wall arrangement that will have your family smiling each time they walk by it. Having friends oohing and ahhing over your creativity – well that’s just a nice bonus” says co-owner Francisco Salgado.
