Joy was a senior who really lived up to her name. She was so easy to photograph- super smiley and we had a lot of great conversations about college and such while we were shooting. My good friend Jessica Marshall came along and assisted me during the shoot, and her “peeking” out from behind the reflector apparently made Joy giggle like crazy, which just made my life even more easy. We started at my house and then went to the Portland International Rose Garden for some pretty floral shots. I had shot there before in the morning, but never in the evening, so that was a little different. Jessica had never even been there before- I was shocked! If you are in the Portland area- make sure you go someday. It’s a lot of fun and great for a date or a picnic!
