A few months ago, when the hint of Autumn was on the horizon, I decided I wanted to do a shoot, impromptu, which is always my favorite, down by the water on Bear Lake. It is not far from my house and I have always loved the diversity and the scenery around this lake and all it has to offer. It is beautiful to say the least! I put a call out on Facebook to anyone interested in acting as my model! This is where I met Michaela, and she is as lovely inside as she is out! She is a student at Whitworth college, originally from Walla Walla my hometown. We had an instant connection. I told her to just dress in her favorite couture, and give me a couple of changes of wardrobe, all of which she did to perfection. I fashioned a bouquet of foraged leaves and white roses from my yard, to add a bit of color and texture to some of the images. I especially adore these shots right by the banks of the water, and the beautiful watercolor like hues of the surrounding scenery. Thank-you Michaela, it was inspiring to work with you and to have you as my muse. You are a stunningly lovely young lady!
