Last year, 2 days before heading out for 3 months in Europe, I photographed a wedding in Astoria, Oregon. It was a lot of fun, and I was stunned by the panoramic views from the Astoria column. (You should view Leslie and David’s Astoria wedding photographs, including the shotgun scene.)
While photographing the wedding, I noticed one of the bridesmaids, a quiet, tall, striking young lady named Savannah. She was the bride’s niece, I learned, and was 12.
Fast forward to this past summer. I was creating Leslie and David’s wedding story album, and was struck again by Savannah’s look. So I contacted Leslie, and she connected me with her aunt. After talking it over, we scheduled a test shoot for Savannah here in Portland.
Savannah Herrington and I had a good time photographing together. She’s one of those girls who looks much older than her 14 years; she’s at least as tall as me, perhaps taller. You’d think she was at least 17, a high school senior rather than a freshman. Her interest in modeling should be well served by these striking images for her portfolio.
I love photographing model test shoots like this, in Portland, and around the world! Contact us today for your own modeling portfolio test shoot.
