Katelynn: Senior Model {Class of 2015}, pt. 1 · EUGENE, OREGON {EUGENE, OREGON SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER}

Session date: May 4, 2014

Venue:  Owen Rose Garden

About 5 minutes before Katelynn’s session one early May afternoon it started to rain.  And not just a little bit… it was a downpour.  When  I arrived at the Rose Garden I  thought maybe we should just get started anyway since after all, this is Oregon, and sometimes you just have to go with it! Thankfully Katelynn was a good sport and graciously agreed to go ahead with the shoot.  We were rewarded with some fabulous pics despite the not-so-cooperative weather.   Oh, and by the way… the sun did actually make an appearance by the end of our session, just to make things even more perfect.

Katelynn is one of my 2o15 senior models so you will be seeing more photos of her and her beautiful smile in the next few months!


Photography Class: Gas Works Park

In July I had the opportunity to attend a Lightchasers photography class in Seattle with my lovely sister-in-law, Angela.  We met at Gas Works park and split up to capture images of interesting industrial remnants and lovely glimpses of the Seattle skyline.  It was a great way to learn about exposure, composition, and other techniques while still enjoying the great outdoors.  I was fascinated by the different textures, shapes, and silhouettes created by this former industrial complex.  It was fun to capture tiny details that might otherwise go unnoticed.  All in all it was an amazing experience and I am looking forward to participating in some more Lightchasers classes in the future.
