Last week, we had the pleasure of trekking down to Eugene to document the happenings at the Oregon Leadership Network’s Spring Conference, and the lunch break had a particularly interesting surprise for us: a performance by Mariachi del Sol, a student mariachi band from nearby Springfield High School! Word is, the group came together after seeing and being inspired by the only other school mariachi group in Oregon (from Woodburn High School). After a lot of fundraising and practice time, Mariachi del Sol is getting to be well-known around the Eugene/Springfield community, and is spreading an infectious combo of music and Hispanic culture.

We’re still winding down after a busy day at the Holiday Cravings Shopping Party, and we’ll have photos from the event soon… but today we’re feeling like it’s high time for a snapshot.
We had the chance to see Springfield School District Superintendent Nancy Golden in action, while shooting on-location in Springfield several weeks ago. She has a reputation for being an active and forward-thinking educator: not only does she bring other educators together, but she also makes sure to stay in touch and relate with the students. More about the work that she and other educators are doing to strengthen public schools is in the latest issue of Education Northwest Magazine.
(and yes, you can book with us for photojournalistic promotional and event photography… we shoot in a variety of situations, for people from all walks of life. Just e-mail or call us to get the details!)
