Josh and I teamed up for our senior portrait session with Shayna, and the weather was just about perfect that day. Shayna’s active in cross-country and lacrosse at Liberty High School in Hillsboro, and her love of the city and the outdoors gave us plenty of room to change things up and wander a bit. We started our session in Portland’s Pearl District, and then got to head out towards the edge of town, to hit up a few lesser-known spots that we’d found on one of our more recent photowalks.
I think the highlight of the session for me was when we took her down to a sandy spot by the river: I always enjoy shooting at locations that take us a bit off the beaten path, and Shayna also surprised us by suggesting that she stand in the water for some of her shots. I love it when I’m working with someone who’s not afraid to get a little bit messy!
