I accompanied my son and DIL to a photo shoot he did of a newborn and her family yesterday..in Vancouver. I got to watch Elaina..make sure she didn't run into the equipment. These are friends of the kids'..so it was comfortable (except their house was like a furnace inside).
My son is a perfectionist...and the pics turned out great! I'll ask him to send me a few and I'll share them. My DIL has some great photo ideas as well..so they make a great team. They are both off to their "regular jobs" today.
Anyway..after the shoot we set off for downtown Portland to return the lenses he rented. We decided to eat dinner, thereby avoiding rush-hour traffic. We picked Serratto...a white tablecloth Italian spot in the Nob Hill district...and only a block away from City Market!! Well, we sat in the bar and got the happy hour small plates. Turns out, Elaina loves cured meats, artisan cheeses, olives, calamari, fettucine with short rib ragu, baby back ribs, and ceasar salad!!
A great meal...spot on service, wonderful atmosphere. We will go back again next time I am in town.
