My home studio, built in 1923, is located in inner southeast Portland near Reed College. The workspace is in my cozy, daylight basement with a comfortable waiting area for family or friends, and includes a private space for wardrobe changes. There are a variety of options for multiple backgrounds within the studio, however, I prefer shooting outside in natural light if possible. My yard, as well as the surrounding neighborhood and areas within a short drive, offer an abundance of natural settings, including grass, greenery, flowers, rockwork, fountains and a swimming pool.


Welcome!  I am Kandece Romanaggi, the second generation photographer behind the lens at Carole Meyer Photography.

My mother, Carole Meyer, was the original business owner, but is now retired.  She passed her business down to me and I decided to keep it in her name to carry on her vision, as well as her tradition of excellence in portrait photography and customer service.

For the last 20+ years, I have been photographing high school seniors and their families and some of the years, right alongside my mother.  My specialty is individual portraiture, but I enjoy photo shoots with couples and families.

I love my job and achieve immense satisfaction creating environments that show my clients in the best light that captures a moment in time forever.  I pride myself on not only creating a relaxed and comfortable environment, but also with the collaboration all the way through the print process to ensure my clients are happy with the finished product. Historically, my background has been in using traditional film, but I now enjoy working in the digital format, which is a more flexible medium for sharing photographs with clients.

Thank you for  visiting my website.  I look forward to working with you and welcome any questions you may have.  Please contact me at 503.724.3255 c.
