So excited to share another one of my amazing 2020 Senior Spokesmodel’s senior sessions!! Nicole’s senior session happened in Portland, Oregon and we visited several locations that were very special to her!
First stop was Pearl District to capture some of that urban vibe! Then, we shot at the Portland Rose Garden, which is so magnificent with hundreds of roses. It smells AMAZING… and is so beautiful!! Our final stop was at Hoyt Arboretum Park, which was an extra special place for Nicole because her family has logged many hours hiking its paths throughout the years!
Nicole spent a lot of thought in putting her outfits together and it definitely showed! Her wrap dress was super cute and classy, and it so was fun to have her swirl it for some pictures! My personal favorite was the jumpsuit… AND it had pockets! The best, right?
Wrapping it up with her final outfit, Nicole wore white pants, paired with a soft blush blouse and grey tied sandals. I loved the way it looked with the grass and trees as we shot that specific outfit at Hoyt Arboretum Park!
I also love it when family comes to support their senior’s at their session. Nicole’s mom was so sweet and was such a huge help holding bags and reflectors… and taking some “behind-the-scenes” photos for me! After we finished up, they offered to take me out for ice cream to celebrate- I was so honored!
Evidently getting Salt and Straw ice cream at 9:30 is THE THING to do, ‘cause we waiting in a long line… and let me tell you it was WORTH IT! The flavors were amazing and some absurd- like the habanero marionberry goat cheese. I think it was good, but the strawberry sheep cheese was the BEST! For sure going to have to come back and try a few more (maybe all?!) flavors!
Nicole- simply put, you exude joy! Kind and caring, you go out of your way to make people feel loved. Your smile and laugh light up the room, and it was a privilege for me to be able to capture it!
