Photoshoots are a big deal at Eighth Generation! Of course, we need high quality lifestyle photos to show off our products, but what’s most exciting about a photoshoot is that it’s another opportunity to support and uplift creative Native professionals in our community. From photographers and models to hair and makeup artists and caterers, Eighth Generation works with Native talent as often as possible for each shoot.

At a recent photoshoot, we were incredibly fortunate to use the home of Chinook Indian Nation member Roger Nyhus. A communications and public relations expert, Roger is also a philanthropist, patron of the arts, and community-driven advocate who has advised major corporations and political figures.

Roger’s home—a historic mansion on Seattle’s Capitol Hill—has been host to fundraising events, political rallies, and now an Eighth Generation photoshoot. He generously allowed our team to photograph a lovely family—shout out to Temryss (Lummi Nation), Orion, and baby Aquila (Lummi Nation)—to highlight our Gold Label throw blankets and baby blankets made in our Seattle studio.

“Roger is such a dear friend, and like me, has been a longtime supporter of Eighth Generation,” shares Eighth Generation CEO Colleen Echohawk (Pawnee, Athabascan). “Roger was so generous to allow us to photograph in his beautiful home, and it was a no-brainer to add that layer of Indigeneity to the photoshoot.”

A fusion of historic architecture and modern art, Roger’s home was a great backdrop for a photoshoot. While our photographer, Brittney Couture, worked to capture photos that would show off our products and Roger’s home, our team worked to keep our youngest model happy and entertained (and steered away from some of the priceless art Roger has displayed!).

Roger’s garden is just as beautiful as his home’s interior, and the team was able to get some great outdoor photos as well.

Thank you to Roger, who so generously allowed us the use of your beautiful home, to Temryss and her wonderful family for modeling, to our amazing photographer Brittney, and to our excellent Eighth Generation team who made this shoot such an Indigenous production.
