I met Roslyn at Fort Warden, the same place I had photographed her sister's senior session a few years back - It is a special place for their family and such a cool location for photography. Working here with the lovely and adventurous Rosyln felt very much like a commercial fashion shoot. Lots of different looks, locations, movements and even a bold dip in the water at the end!

Some would say that these two forms of photography can not go together. Photojournalism is telling a story while portraits are a deliberate interpretation of a subject. However I have never seen myself as one or the other type of photographer. Yes, my photography sessions are planned and the focus is making beautiful pictures, but I also strive to capture the interactions behind the scenes which make a unique and true story of my clients. These are always my favorites, but I know that there is also great value in tradition too.

Sometimes you get fun surprises during outdoor sessions. It's one of the things I like most about working in a uncontrolled environment! And it's these little things that can make each session even more unique and special. Wether it's a rainbow, ice cream truck or in this case horses I always try to take advantage of these little gifts. Especially when this senior happens to love horses! A special thank you to the owner for letting us get up close and personal with them.
