Molly J. // Graduated

July 5, 2011

Last week I got together with Molly for a session in honor of her graduation from Oregon Health & Science University. She completed her Dietetic Internship and is moving on to bigger and better things. Portland is going to miss her!

Molly was an absolute joy to work with. She’d have you believe that she’s camera shy, but in reality she needed zero direction during this shoot. Just two girls having fun in downtown Portland with a makeshift bouquet of once-fresh veggies (unfortunately, by the time we got to that part of the shoot the chard was wilted and looking pretty unphotogenic!).

We eventually met up with her boyfriend, Kyle, for a slice of pizza. Some couples go out to the movies, or take long walks on the beach – Molly and Kyle eat pizza! I managed to withhold information about the status of a Giants game in order to get Kyle to pose for a shot. All in day’s work. :)

I feel strength in the image.
very good shot !!!

I love this, it’s so refreshing and the focus is amazing

these are all so wonderful! man you got some amazing light there!

so so cute. I love all of these. Kim, you’re amazing. Molly, stunning :)

This is a great shoot – her personality just shines through this, the props told a great story. Wonderful.

Molly looks amazing! Perfect shots!!

the props were so apropro. and all those shades of green are so perfect with her eyes. awesome set!

I love the veggie bouquet! I can’t believe that Molly was nervous at all, she seems like a natural in front of the camera. Love her outfit too, so chic. On a separate note, I’m going to be down in PDX this coming weekend, any suggestions of must try foodcarts/bars and restaurants?

Holy guacamole, this set is stunning. A true testament of why people need to have portraits taken. You did such an amazing job, I can’t wait to see more as you’re going to be booked solid doing these portrait sessions for the next twenty years.

Molly, the pictures are fabulous!!!!!!!!! You are so photogenic and the photographer is very talented.

Love ya, Tita Ginger

Kim! !!!!!!! :D
