Portraits in the Columbia River Gorge

One weekend I was visiting Seattle and had this weird feeling that I should go home. I ended up cutting my trip two days short to drive back to Portland. On my way back, I got an inquiry from Maria asking for last-minute portraits. We quickly planned her dream session and took them at her favorite spot; Columbia River Gorge. This Columbia River Gorge session was nothing short of amazing.We took photos at golden hour and had a ton of fun getting to know each other. Maria is a model based in LA and has been in commercials and ads.

Photographing her was an honor because she made it so easy – she knew exactly how to pose and did it perfectly. We took digital and film photos and talked all about past lives and alternate universes. She knew crazy things about space that blew my mind. Maria is also very knowledgeable about space and personality types, such as enneagrams. We had some great conversations surrounding spirituality and religion. I can’t wait to connect with Maria again in Southern California. I am so glad I listened to my gut when I was in Washington and went back to Portland. Otherwise, I’m not sure I would have ever had the chance to photograph Maria or get to know her. She is an incredible human, and I am honored to have shot some images of her.
