When it rains, it pours.  And if you live in Portland, you have to expect it to rain….a lot!  But, if you have the right attitude, you can even turn a rainy backdrop into a series of stunning photos.  After a series of rain delays, we finally picked a day to get some shots done.  We packed a car with me, my camera, my assistant, a few umbrellas, a carload of outfits and  my Hilhi senior rep, Breanna C.  Knowing what I do about Portland, I should have known that if the forecast calls for partly cloudy, that equals rain.  Luckily we were able to find a covered bridge in Portland’s industrial district that allowed us quite a few locations to shoot


The great thing about shooting in Portland is that even when you walk down the same road, there are a multitude of ever changing backdrops you can use.  From train tracks to loading docks, staircases to hidden alcoves, we managed to get quite the variety of shots.  We literally stopped traffic at one point (because we were shooting in the middle of the street)!

Breanna was a great sport throughout the shoot and the photos speak to her beauty and style.  She just wrapped up her Junior year at Hilhi and is looking forward to that all important senior year.  Despite the glam look she portrays in the pictures, she has no problem getting down and dirty playing softball for the past 4 years.  In school, she channels a lot of her energy into her art, which she has a real talent for.  As part of the Leadership group, she also helps decorate the school for all the social events.  You may have seen some of her work decorating the halls of Hilhi and didn’t even know it.

If you see her roaming the halls, congratulate her on her work ask her for a postcard that is worth a $35 print credit at www.danyelrogersphotography.com!
