My wonderful friend and favorite model came up to Portland to help me celebrate my birthday weekend, so I obviously took advantage of her presence and we had an impromptu photo shoot down on the Columbia! The weather was super moody – sunny when we arrived and threatening storms by the time we left. Thankfully we made it home just in time for it to start pouring! I missed Oregon’s diversity and unpredictability, along with Hailey’s thirst for life.
Water is extremely fun to photograph. A very fast shutter speed can capture amazing detail in water drops.
It can also stop time so we can see one single, fleeting moment.
I love the precision in the water splash – it’s unique like a thumb print.
Check back soon, there’s much more of Hailey to come!
