If you are connected to me via facebook then you have seen my current profile image of me holding a vintage camera. Well that image and others were taken a few months back by the talented Ashley Forrette. We met via the internet. Ashley emailed me over the winter saying that she liked my work and was planning on moving to Portland from California very soon. We sent emails back and forth. I told her about neighborhoods to look at houses and we chatted about Portland. Then I had the pleasure of finally meeting her in person. She is sweet, kind and a very talented photographer. Portland is lucky to have her. So she took pics of my husband and I and then I recently took pics of her and her husband, Chris.
I was excited to shoot them in my new hood and I couldn’t be happier with my new surroundings! Photo opp’s everywhere I turned and we only covered a block radius! Of course, they were super cute in front of the camera and needed very little direction from me. I joked with Ashley that I had a bit of pressure to turn the images around quickly since she had ours ready in less than two days! So, I did it! Here are some of my fav’s from the shoot, it was SO hard to narrow it down.They also told me this was the first time they had photos taken together since their wedding day…no pressure for me:) Enjoy!
