»News From The montrose Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce

Virtually Evolving!


COVID-19 has created a new normal for all of us including our Montrose~Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce members. Like our amazing businesses, we have faced this hardship head on and adjusted to the changes accordingly. Here at MVCC we have produced our first virtual ribbon cutting that welcomed Shawerma Kingdom. If you missed that video clip you can find it on the MVCC YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiGs5Z93KonmSTac2oBIz9w

Our newest business member is Panos Production Photography. We have started the welcome for Panos Production Photography via social media postings. You may have seen the social media post showcasing the offer to make digital paintings out of photographs. Again, a response to the current business environment. 

As owner Katherine Katsenis states: “Technically, I am a photographer but what I do is dramatically different than what most people think of when they hear the word ‘photographer.’”

To start, her tagline is “Showpiece Images For Modern Moms.” Katherine’s flagship service is mother-child studio portraits. You can see examples at http://www.panosproductions.net/motherchild. This service is what she was offering as a vendor at the Montrose Marketplace on Sundays. She was also offering fine art studio portraits including pregnancy portraits and portraits of babies aged 7 to 12 months, children and ’tweens. In addition to this, Katherine is a photo artist, which means that she offers specialty services in digital artistry that are based on photographs. As the business landscape has changed, so too have the offerings of services from Panos Productions Photography.

Life is moving forward as we “stay-at-home” when expecting mothers, newborns and important family moments matter so much. The MVCC welcomes Panos Production Photography to the MVCC membership and to a new world of connection.

As we prepare the Road to Recovery Stage 2 of this crisis, we work to ensure the responsible re-opening of local businesses. We look forward to a safe return to a “new normal.” We wish for you and your family to keep safe and keep well.
