Jessica is a Class of 2011 senior at Summit View High School in Vancouver, and she knew right away that she was interested in some great outdoor shots with a nature element, so I met up with her at Overlook Park in North Portland, which boasts a lot of open space and some very striking trees.
Not only did we grab some great shots with the trees and grass in the area, but her relaxed and casual style also turned out to be a great fit for shots with more of an urban edge. I loved the way her eyes popped so many of the settings we chose!
Our senior photo shoot with Katie, a senior at Lake Oswego High School, had us starting her portrait session in a NW Portland park. Katie loves nature and is very involved with Outdoor School programs, so she was more than willing to brave some chilly and wet weather to get senior portraits in her favorite settings.
After we explored a few trails with her, we ventured into the city to take shots in a more modern and urban setting. Her sister, Natalie, also came along with us for the session, cracking jokes and lightening the mood, and we all enjoyed wandering through the neighborhood and discovering fantastic old buildings.
