This summer editorial is something I’ve been working on for a while, it all started with the discovery of an awesome old historic house on Sauvie Island. It is empty now, which made it a perfect backdrop for a countryside shoot, and all the Oregon Parks folks were really chill about the whole thing. I contacted a couple of my favorite independent designers to see if they’d provide some clothing, and I was so excited when they all said yes. A million thanks to Nadia, Lisa Marie and Anna for sending such great stuff, and in two cases, from so far away. A million more thanks to Megan, Nica, dalas, Haley and Kathleen for being so cool and spending a day with me out in the country and makin’ it happen. May your summer dreams make you feel oh so fine!
In other photo news, Megan and I won third place in the Crossroads photo contest! Yay! There were over 1500 entries, so I’m proud of us. Interesting to note, all the winners (except for first) are from Portland!
