I took these lifestyle portraits of Michelle at the Let’s go workshop where we met last November. She is a talented fellow photographer based in Alberta like me, so it was nice to get to know her and to photograph her on this perfect Oregon beach with this perfect pacific northwest weather.
The thing which is very cool when you hang out with other photographers is that we always – ALWAYS – end up taking pictures of each other. This beach was across the place where we stayed for the workshop so it was mandatory to shoot there. I must say that Michelle blew me away. Her beauty is evident of course But she is so natural in front of the camera, it’s practically impossible to take one bad picture of her. I am glad we took these pictures. It just makes me love taking portraits of women even more.
Also, if you ever visit Portland, Oregon, be sure to visit the coast and especially Manzanita Beach. This place is my new favourite place in the world. The beach, the ocean, the weather, the little town of Manzanita… everything made me want to move to that lovely place!
