Amanda (my boss and friend from Banner) and I have been planning her little sister's SR portrait shoot for about two months now. Delayed due to weather, we finally got our chance to shoot and what a perfect day it was.
These next couple of images were shot down in the Pearl District, where we did your semi traditional "three outfit" session.
I wanted to share at least one image of Spencer smiling, cause she is so stinkin' cute. There are just too many to choose from and I usually tend to lean towards the moodier ones (I don't know why).
THE PITTOCK MANSION
This is where we all let loose. From day one Spencer wanted something different for her shoot and different is what we gave her...
To pull off an amazing shoot, I called in the troops.

My dear friend Rafael was my assistant for the day. I'm used to shooting a lot on my own so it is a treat to have an assistant. Raf usually thinks of the not so ordinary things to do... my favorite image of the day was inspired by Mr. Contreras and we executed it perfectly. Yes folks, that is a name plate on his belt and no, the lady wearing the gaudy white dress behind him was not with us.
Amanda (left) covered hair, make-up and wardrobe. Spencer (right) was our talent willing to do anything we asked of her.
THANK YOU SPENCER!!!
You were great to work with and did whatever I asked of you with complete faith and trust in me as your photographer. Just to name a few... you squeezed yourself into a circular statue, bared your feet in freezing cold water, got into a "summer" dress (when we all know Oregon's fall sun is not warm) and didn't complain once of the cold, walked into a tall grassy field bare foot, stood in high heels on a dock with wide slats, sat in wet grass, climbed into a tree and pulled off running like someone was chasing you. Thank you Spencer!!!
