Campbell Salgado Studio does more than take photos, they capture the emotions and personalities of each of the families that come to their studios in unique ways with gorgeous results. All of the staff members are experts at what they do and very easy to work with. My boyfriend and I did a family photo session with our English Mastiff and I could not be happier with all of the photos. I would highly recommend this and I will definitely be coming back!

I had a terrific experience with Campbell Salgado Studio. They let me know what my options were well before my photo session, they were reliable and organized, and best of all they got some great shots that I never would have been able to capture myself. Use them for professional needs, personal keepsakes, and social media. Don't forget to bring your pet if you have one.... you will have some memories to last forever.

There is nothing easy about photographing a family with 3 boys (ages 17, 14 & 10). Normally self-conscious and uncomfortable in front of a camera , the boys were a little skeptical about the family photo shoot I had planned. Kim, however, was brilliant at giving direction where needed but ultimately letting the boys just be boys. She captured their individual personalities and the connection they have as brothers. The resulting photos are beautiful and unique - and perfectly represent the character of our family. Thank you CSS!

I was photographed several years ago and had an amazing experience. I do not like to be photographed and am rarely ever happy with a picture of me in it, so I was very nervous about the session. I ended up having a blast during the session and was so happy when I saw the photographs. There were so many that I not just liked, but LOVED. And they were of me! I moved back to Oregon recently and am looking forward to working with them again now that I have a beautiful family.

For years I have seen photographs taken my Campbell Salgado Studios around Portland. I had always wanted to take my family in for a photo session, and finally scheduled a visit. My family has now been photographed by Kim twice over the past two years. The best thing, besides the beautiful photos she captures, is her ability to put children at ease so that their personalities can shine through on film. She even allowed us to bring our family dog, a boxer, and on our second session, our beloved family cat who had been diagnosed with cancer. The beautiful photos of my children and their pets cover our living room walls and are admired by our friends and family when they visit. I cannot recommend Campbell Salgado highly enough. It is well worth the money!

Last spring my husband and I were photographed by Kim. She was an excellent photographer, made us feel comfortable and at ease, and took the most lovely photographs which are now precious documents of a time in our life that we hold dear to our hearts. We highly recommend her and additionally found her support staff to be friendly and compassionate.

My family has been going to the studio for more than 7 years. Every visit including both shooting and reviewing session has been so relaxing and fun.\n\nTheir very professional yet casual approach to make us all feel comfortable allows us to just have fun during session. We forget that we are having pictures taken and our expressions are so natural. Of course, they are really good at capturing my little kids' busy moves and unexpected priceless expressions!\n\nI recommend the studio to anyone out there who are looking for someone who can capture your real self and fun moments. I am sure they are great at capturing the formal moments, too. But I can speak from my experience that I just love to see the results every time I get photos from them, because they show how much fun we have there every time!

I am absolutely thrilled with the experience we had at Campbell Salgado! I cannot wait for the pictures to be hanging in my home. Kim captured my three children and each of their personalities, individually and as a trio. She was relaxed, patient and calm and my kids responded. I was almost in tears at how beautiful the photos were.\n\nGoing into the ordering session, I was nervous about my minimal budget. They were more than willing to work with me, allow me to make a series of payments and kept it within a realistic framework. \n\nI am truly excited to have real portraits of the kids!! (not just my cheap mall package photos). I would recommend their studio to all!!

We had our first professional family portrait taken at Campbell-Salgado studio-- and it is amazing. We can?t take our eyes off of it! We also had portraits taken of our two kids together and separately and they were all so gorgeous that we ordered those as well. Prior to our shooting session, we came in and met with a coordinator that interviewed us and gave us advice about what to bring to the photo session. We then came for the shoot on a Saturday morning with our six and eleven year old kids. We loved the weathered metallic background they had in one of their numerous outdoor backdrops, so Kim did a quick inventory of the clothes we brought with us and then quickly pieced together a beautiful complementary color scheme. We did a session of photos inside and then went out, despite some drizzly weather. Kim worked with an assistant and did a great job keeping us moving through a variety of fun poses. After the shoot we came back for two sessions to view the photographs and now have the printed results, framed and hung on our walls. The photos are natural, spontaneous, and capture our personalities. They are also just artistically beautiful. We are so happy we had these portraits taken. I highly recommend this studio to anyone who is looking for artwork starring their own family.

My family has been using Campbell Salgado since our first child's birth 3 years ago. At first, we weren't sure we could afford it, but they always seem to be running some kind of special on the sitting fee that we just can't refuse. Every time we go we are so glad we did. Even if we only buy 1-2 photos from the sitting-they are priceless and mean the world to us. They have such wonderful backdrops that feel very organic and earthy, plus excellent black and white studio indoors. I love the natural light in their patio studio with all the great textures and colors. The team is so helpful at suggesting attire, getting kids to cooperate, and using their natural curiosity to capture a great shot. We love them!

My family and I recently moved to the Portland area and a friend recommended that we have Kim take our photos. When I first stepped into their home studio I immediately loved it. The space gives you a great feeling. It is filled with carefully chosen antiques from the surrounding neighborhood shops along with new pieces that give it a sense of stylish sophistication. I knew I was in good hands. My 2 year old daughter warmed up to her and her assistant Allie almost immediately. But, just in case they had many tricks up their sleeve to get just the right shots. They were both very kind and they made the experience very comfortable for everyone including my camera shy husband. He typically dreads getting photos taken, but after the experience here he told me that he wants to keep coming back.

Really, my sitting experience was wonderful and the only problem was that a torrential downpour started just after only a few photos in one of the delightful areas set up for photos in the backyard. I never imagined that I would be interested in outdoor photos and then I saw the options. Eagerly awaiting my opportunity to review my photos next week.

Kim took the most beautiful pictures of my kids. She really captured their personalities while making the photo shoot fun for them. The studio is fabulous, so many great areas to take the pictures, inside and outside. The photos are literally BREATHTAKING, and I am having trouble deciding on which ones to pick. In fact, I am going to redo an entire wall in my house now that I've seen them, because these photos are ARTWORK.

My husband and I went in for pregnancy photos this last weekend. The Campbell Salgado Studio team is amazing. The business itself is set in a great old house with tons of character and charm. Kim and Francisco were very attentive and listened to our ideas as well as bringing their own experience and ideas to the table. \r\nI am definitely a bit camera shy and they did a great job of making my husband and I comfortable. They really captured us as a couple. \r\nNot only do they have great photo set-ups in the house, their back yard is full of lovely backdrops, including a bamboo forest, water wall feature, and many others. The images themselves turned out incredible. I had no idea we could look so good. Their sense of composition is spot on! \r\nTheir print options are great, everything from a 3 foot by 4 foot print to an intimate book of photos. I can't say enough good things about this studio.\r\nTheir business is a few blocks away from great food and shopping so you can make a whole date out of the photo session. What a great day!\r\n

I have a 15y/o Shiba Inu dog named Toby, and wanted to get some nice professional shots of him so that I could have some lasting memories. The folks at Campbell Salgado were great, they worked with us to get some really nice shots. (Toby's not particularly good at just sitting still.) I had originally thought I'd just want a photo of Toby alone, but I ended up getting several of Toby and I together. Every part of the process was exceptional, from the initial consultation, to the photo shoot, to the review, and the final prints are just what I wanted. Thank you Campbell Salgado!

Beautiful portraits that capture those expressions that you're not even aware of in your child, but recognize in an instant. Sessions that are fun and playful. Portraits that are never posed. Photos that capture spontaneity and joy. Kim has a tremendous knack for capturing just the right moment, whether its the turn of a head or the way the bubbles are floating down around a dancing child. \n\nKim has photographed us at 4 or 5 sessions now, beginning with pregnancy. Because they counselled us well, early on, to try to keep some of the mat and frame sizes the same, we can rotate them on the walls, remembering years past and seeing the changes that have happened. Each experience has been delightful and it's been exciting to see them fine tune their business so that they offer not only exceptional photographs, but also a complete experiential package and many different ways to think about and assemble your portraits. It is a joy to go through all of the photos during the slide show. It is always hard to pick just a few from each shoot to print. The number of great shots is always amazing and fun to see. And it is ever so handy to have them mat and frame the images. Something I find hard to follow up on myself.\n\nAnd while they may be a bit spendy, good luck creating images like these at home. Not only is it a lot harder than you think, but kids react differently to Kim and Francisco than they do to their ""usual"" photographers. I doubt they see the number of outstretched palms and screamed ""no""s that we do when trying to capture moments with our 4-year old! We have found the photos they have taken over the years to be truly invaluable.

And it is ever so handy to have them mat and frame the images. Something I find hard to follow up on myself.\n\nAnd while they may be a bit spendy, good luck creating images like these at home. Not only is it a lot harder than you think, but kids react differently to Kim and Francisco than they do to their ""usual"" photographers. I doubt they see the number of outstretched palms and screamed ""no""s that we do when trying to capture moments with our 4-year old! We have found the photos they have taken over the years to be truly invaluable.

Pros: cherished memories artfully captured

Cons: choosing from among the many great photos

We have been going to CS since our first born was 10 months old. Having never experienced more than cheesy smile type photography, both my husband and I were hooked. I remember watching the intro slideshow representing their styles and could not believe that we would have pictures that looked like that. The photo experience brought out the best in all of us and I cried when we saw the slideshow of our first session-- I was so touched to see our little family up on the screen like that! It is now 4 years and another child later. We have gone back every year. The staff is excellent and very professional. Each experience is unique. I think the prices reflect the excellent quality of the whole package, not just the photo. We end up choosing just a few each time but over the years their photos are the main art of our whole house. I recommend CS to everyone. We even brought our family from the east coast to have a session and they were impressed. Kim is a fantastic photographer and become a good friend in the process. All around thumbs up!

Pros: experience, staff, products, snacks!

Cons: wish we could buy more

One of the reviewers above said this was a ""cultish"" experience? Oh give me a break. Are you paranoid or just scared of the dark? Or both? Our family had photos taken there and it was one of the most relaxing, fun photo sessions I've ever been in. Yeah, you go into a room and view your photos on a big screen. Ever seen a slide show before? C/S goes way beyond that. There was nice music, a big comfy couch, refreshments (beer!) and yummy snacks served. The photography was light-years beyond anything else we'd ever had done before. There were a ton of shots to choose from and the photo review was highly organized by the C/S staff. My wife and I argued over which shots to get because there were so many great ones to choose from. They don't take your ordinary grinning-like-an-idiot studio photos. Their facility, which is built into a large house, is extraordinary. The photos are artwork, not like the junk you get at Sears (or even any other pro studio for that matter). C/S has its act together. You get what you pay for - top quality work, including framing and matting. Everyone who sees our family photos is awestruck by them, wondering how we got them. I just send them to Campbell/Salgado. Every one of my friends who has followed up and gotten their photos there was very happy they did. And I'm picky as hell.

Wow! We love this place. We've had professional portraits taken before, but have never had an experience anywhere close to what we had at Campbell Salgado. We felt like VIP's from the moment we walked in the door for our complinetary planning session. It was so nice to see how invested the studio was in ensuring that we loved our images. (And for me, who is not the most creative, artistic type, it was really helpful to have the slideshow to watch to get some ideas of photos we might want to create. ) When we came back for the actual session, we felt so welcomed and accommodated--particularly our (sometimes recalcitrant) six-year old! None of us would ever be likened to models, and with other photographers the experience of 'posing' always felt awkward--and the resulting pictures reflected this. At this studio however, they seemed to focus more on capturing our natural interactions with each other, with warm and wonderful (and sometimes hilarious) results. We were absolutely amazed by our pictures when we went in for our viewing. It's true they were more expensive than other photographers we have used in the past, but the images that were captured of our (rapidly growing) children and our connection to each other as a family are worth so much more than money. ( And with the time, heart and energy the photographers (and the studio as a whole) seems to invest in each client, I can totally respect their prices!) We will definitely be going back!

Pros: best photos we've ever seen (particularly of ourselves!), individual attention, gorgeous studio with a TON of options

Cons: could potentially feel expensive, especially if looking to only buy a single image.

We went to their studio to discuss booking a family photoshoot there and we were uncomfortable. They made us wait forever even though we had an appointment and the person we were waiting for just seemed to be doing office work. She invited us into the next room and then pulled down a movie screen that blocked any possible escape. She never asked us if we would like to watch a slideshow (we would have said no--we had already seen their work on their website). Then they explained that we would not be able to own any of the photographs. We would have to buy overpriced prints from them anytime we wanted one. If we wanted to use a digital version of one or more, we would have to pay a licensing fee up front. I know this is how photographers make money, but it just felt weird and...sort of manipulative. My husband and I walked out and we both knew without saying anything that we would never go back.

Pros: Nice studio spaces and good results

Cons: Cultish sales practices and the studio name stamped on every print

My 10 year olds and I enjoyed a relaxed, playful afternoon with Kim Campbell in her new outdoor studio this summer. Kim easily engaged my reluctant kids into giggles and expressing themselves. She captures expressions and feelings in her work. She and her assistant made us all feel comfortable and enjoy our connection with each other. The photos she took are works of art that not only captured the twinkle in our eyes but also the unique connections between us. I know many people who have had wonderful experiences at this studio.

Our family shines within the lens of Campbell Salgado Studio's photographers . . .They are the best photographer we've ever worked with, in both the experience and the results. Their work with our babies has been phenonmenal, and it is such a family friendly time vs. the other experiences we have had trying to get photos of our squirmers. Try out their magic, but be prepared to get hooked. We are spoiled now and can't go anywhere else. Your family as artwork for your walls - what a great concept!
