Let Your Soul Blossom

Being able to watch the winter days melt away and turn into spring is such a treat. This is the second year I've been able to do it and it is just as exciting as the last. Growing up in Hawaii I had forgotten how magical spring is, especially cherry blossom season. In Portland there are rows of cherry blossoms right along the water, they are the opening act for bringing the city to life in spring. The perfect place for a spring photoshoot! 

Sydney is an adorable soul and I'm so happy our paths crossed. Thank you Sydney for modeling on that beautiful spring day! 

Here she is wearing a lovely two piece velvet set I found at a clothing swap done by Modified Style Portland, if you need to go to a clothing swap theirs is phenomenal!

These images were shot on one of the plastic cameras I recently reviewed! I'm obsessed with the way the edges are blurred, the images look so dreamy!


This second set of images were taken on my beloved Mamiya C330 with 120mm Portra 400.
