I wanted to have photos of my dogs but didn't know any photographers. When I saw the Groupon for Positive Vista I asked if dogs were allowed and received a yes. I took my dogs and had a great time. Very pleased with the experience and the photos. Would definitely go back and have more photos taken in the future. She was very patient and friendly with my dogs.

Portia at Positive Vista is a pleasure to work with. This visit was for a headshot for my business card and I'm very pleased with the outcome. The studio atmosphere was relaxed, Portia was very encouraging and the session felt natural.

I went to Positive Vista Photography to have a professional photo taken for marketing and sales. I do not like being photographed! Portia put me at ease and took several flattering photo's for me to choose from. I am extremely happy with the results!

Thank you so much for such a great experience at my (and Jack the dog) photo shoot last week. Your ability to capture the images I was looking for was spot on. Capturing a dog on film in a studio I know has to be difficult....but Jack seemed to like the "spotlight". Thank you again. Colleen Hughes

Thank you Portia! for meeting my needs in a timely manner. I am very pleased with the results and will use them to replace older photos on my website and in future business mailings. I appreciate you listening to my requests and making my wishes come true :D

I am so satisfied and excited about our pictures. If anyone can get a great pic of a 16 yr old boy it is her. Out portrait of our son is sheer brilliance . Thank you.

From Our Editors

Professional photographer Portia Shao's artistic intuition imbues everything she captures on film, from her evocative portraiture to her impressionistic Polaroid SX-70 snap shots. Dividing her time between watercolor painting and photography, Portia seamlessly melds the two disciplines and exercises her skills across a wide range of subjects. Her landscapes portray the vastness of natural sites around the world, stitching multiple photos together to create panoramic scenes of the Himalayas at sunrise, and her portraiture draws out the essence of each subject she shoots, which makes for pictures more personal than a monogrammed set of headgear.

Beyond her own artistic vision, Portia strives to craft images that please her clients. Before each shoot, she leads visitors around her studio, leafing through samples, discussing clothing ideas, and devising lighting schemes. After each pop of the flash bulb, images show up directly on a high-definition TV, allowing for instantaneous feedback. Even with these fail-safe client-satisfaction measures in place, Portia stands by her work with a Be Thrilled or Bust guarantee, which promises a complimentary re-shoot or reprint if clients are unsatisfied with their shots.
