About BSP Studios LLC and Kati Radziwon

Hi there! Welcome to the blog! A bit about me. I am the youngest of 4 children and grew up in California. I am married to the love of my life and have 2 amazing boys. I love sushi and a cold diet Pepsi. The mountain air makes me happy. Blue is my favorite color. I cannot go more than a day without talking to my sister on the phone. I know that laughter heals. I do not own a pair of skinny jeans. I am easygoing, flexible, and love to be silly. I truly believe I have the best job on earth!

Zenana Stairwell Gallery – Go check it out!

Monday, February 21st, 2011

Zenana Spa and Wellness Center in SE Portland is one of my favorite places…especially when I am pregnant (which I am currently not…just to be clear :) ). For the past 4 years I have been going to Zenana for prenatal, baby and me, or general women’s yoga with Camille of Motherwise Yoga. I have also done regular prenatal and deep tissue massages with Grace (she’s my fav, but to be fair she is the only one I have tried…I am sure they are all spectacular), and overall general pampering. I love it so much I even dragged Bob there to get a massage. Don’t tell him I told you, but he totally LOVED it! It is a quiet retreat amidst the chaos of life with 2 kids and a full time photography business.  It is also a fantastic place to find resources for maternity, postnatal, and general women’s health. I highly recommend Zenana to all my friends and clients and hope you will find the same relaxation and rejuvenation I have found there. Oh…and for those of you that are looking for child care while you get your spa treatments…Zenana has a child care center on site! Call for more details.

I was honored when Zenana asked me to display some of my work.  From now until April 1st, Zenana Spa will be displaying my work in their stairwell gallery. If you are in the area, please take a moment to stop in and peek.

There is also a drawing for a $100 gift certificate to BSP Studios LLC. Just fill out a coupon at the front desk and enter to win. Good luck!



It’s a Preemie Thing…Giveaway!

Friday, February 18th, 2011

If you haven’t noticed, I love a good giveaway! It just makes me feel good to give someone the joy of family images to cherish forever! So, I am participating is a wonderful giveaway through “It’s a Preemie Thing”, a wonderful blog/site dedicated to parents of preemies and their little ones.

I was fortunate enough that both my boys stayed nice and cozy for the full 9 months that I was pregnant with them. So cozy in fact, that both had to be given eviction notices in the form of c-sections. Others however, have not had the same experience and I have had the privilege of working with several families of preemies, some of which are dear friends. Although I cannot speak from my own experience, my heart goes out to those that have had little ones in the hospital NICU for days or even months. I cannot imagine the worry, stress, and overall exhaustion that comes from having a baby in the hospital for any amount of time. All preemie moms are all super moms in my opinion and their strength is inspiring!

If you are the parent of a preemie or know someone with a preemie, even one that has now grown into a toddler, please spread the word about the giveaway. Photographers all across the country are donating sessions to preemie families and I would love for someone to hear about it through my blog or Facebook page. You don’t have to be local to Oregon or the Bay Area to enter the contest, so tell your friends around the nation! Those of you in Portland or the Bay Area that want to enter, please let them know you want your session with BSP Studios and leave some love on my Facebook page. Good luck!

Here is the link to the giveaway blog…
