25 Jul Portlandia – International Intimate Portrait Photographer
This just shows you exactly how far behind I am on posting things….I am doing a throwback post to when I traveled to Portland with my bestie Stephanie and photographed some amazing babely babes in our airbnb. The airbnb we chose for our little vacay/shoot time was perfect….the right amount of kitsch, cute, great amenities, and perfect location for pretty much all that we wanted to do. On our first day of shooting, I invited a handful of babes and fellow photographers over to the airbnb for a play date where we essentially ran around in our lingerie and photographed each other and the models. It was perfectly amazing. Because we were in Portland, I really wanted to capture the gloomyiness that is standardly prevalent in January…HOWEVER, we had some of the clearest skies they have seen!! If you have been to my studio, though, you know I am capable of making even the brightest spaces look amazing dark and moody, so ’twas no issue on this lovely day! I photographed the gorgeous Kiersten Williamson, a curve model from the Portland area and Ella Unusual, a curve model from the Seattle area (which you saw in our 80s themed shoot!) For the session at this airbnb, however, I wanted to give off kind of a sadness, a sombre vibe to our babes…almost like these sad housewives from back in the day. Don’t ask me where my mind was, it’s just what I was inspired to create. Enjoy!
