These are strange times. If I were a landscape photographer, I'd be set. But I prefer to photograph people, which is difficult when everyone is supposed to be staying at home. I saw other portrait photographers doing remote photoshoots over FaceTime/Zoom/whatever, so I asked Kayla if she'd be interested. She's always up for a challenge, … Continue reading FaceTime Photoshoot with Kayla
This Portland trip has been busier than most, but Kayla and I managed to carve out a couple hours for a quick shoot. It was a gorgeous day in Portland, so the window light was perfect. There's something to be said for working with the same models for years. We are able to spend less … Continue reading Kayla – September 2019
Kayla had some ideas for a towel shot, so we figured we'd make a whole boudoir shoot out of it. It's been awhile since I've done a shoot like this, but we figured it out. Kayla rocked it, as always, and we ended up with some great images. The window light was great, but we … Continue reading Boudoir with Kayla
We headed out to Sokol Blosser and White Rose to tase some wine and grab some photos. Because wine goes with photography, obviously.
I never have quite as much time as I'd like when I visit Portland. So instead of big shoots that require driving and setup and all that, we opted for something simple this time. Ava Roasteria has a great location in Progress Ridge next to a large pond. There are outdoor tables on the west … Continue reading Kayla and Coffee
Another trip to Portland means another shoot with my favorite models. Ashlee couldn't make it this time, so Kanchan, Kayla, and I headed out in search of snow. We found a little up at Stub.
On my last trip to Portland, I managed to squeeze in a shoot with my three favorite models.
I didn't bring any lights with me, so I picked up a couple Lume Cubes and we experimented. One of the girls had a colored inflatable light we played with, as well. I love experimenting with light.
Now that summer is (more or less) here in the Pacific Northwest, I'm trying to get in as many fun photo sessions as possible. A few weekends ago, Kanchan joined Kayla, Ashlee, and I on a trip out to the Coast Range of Oregon for an afternoon shoot.
Kayla and I have canceled far too many shoots due to rain over the past year or so. So this time, we actually planned for a rain shoot.
Naturally, it didn't rain.
