Remember my friend Jillian, who got the Henry Darger tattoo? Well, she needed some portraits taken to send to her folks back in Indiana, who haven’t had a proper picture of her in years.
I’ve been working on building my portfolio, so I agreed to go on a couple outings with her to some of my favorite Redding locations. Plus, she’s such a doll– how could I say no?!
First, we went to the Clover Creek Preserves, which is a walking trail just down the street from my house. You’ve likely seen this place before, because I like to photograph it a lot!
A couple days later we met up at the famous Sundial Bridge and had a much shorter shoot that still yielded some lovely results. Seriously, how cute is this girl, you guys?
Granted, these pictures are old news if you follow me on Flickr (see the whole set here), but I honestly can’t get over them! I’d never really done anything near a ‘professional’ photoshoot before, so I wasn’t sure how it would go. I ended up having a lot of fun, though, and am in love with the results we achieved together.
