Hi! I am Deborah Rochford, owner and principle photographer of Rochford Studios.
Based in Portland Oregon I travel to my clients to help document their love, life and story.
I started my business because I love to meet people and learn about their stories.
Using my photography to better their lives and document their love is my passion.
There are so many special memories within a lifetime.
You try to catch them all and bank them in your mind and heart to hold onto forever.
If your lucky, you have photos to be able to relive those moments.
Having photographs of the important people and times in your life brings you joy and fulfillment.
When they are displayed in your home or made into a book it can strengthen your relationships and deepen bonds.
In this digital photography age we have stopped printing.
We have allowed our life and children to grow up on hard drives and cell phones.
All of which can fail, go obsolete or easily be damaged and lost.
I am passionate about helping you to print your photos so that they will last lifetimes.
Give the next generation a chance to benefit and experience the love you have for them.
No one benefits from holding a cd or usb drive in their hand.
For children, seeing themselves in photographs can also give them a sense of importance and a sense of place within the world.
If their photo is printed and hung up for them to see on a daily basis it can have a true lasting effect on their self esteem and confidence.
I strive to capture photos that bring you back to the moment so that you can experience the joy and love again and again.
Time and again if asked people will say that photos of family and friends are among their most prized possessions.
When the ones we love are gone photographs of them can bring them closer to us, comfort us and fill us with their love.
Preserve your love so that your children's children can experience it and feel it too.
