With spring on our heels, Hannah's session was blessed with flickers of golden light promising nicer rain free days to come. Late winter in the Pacific Northwest typically means dewy brisk air, soggy moss underfoot and days filled with thick rain. However, we are lucky from time to time to catch a glimpse of warm sun to calm our goosebumps. With such miracles, you often see countless Washingtonians braving shorts, t-shirts and sunglasses on 50 degree sunny days. Up toward the mountain for her shoot, we weren't any exception. Without the melting snow gathering on the sides of the bridge to tattle, you'd never know. Like that sunny golden light, Hannah has such glow and spunk. This stunning young lady has a bright future ahead of her and I'm already loving having her on my model team.
Her session started in late morning to pick her outfits and do her hair & makeup. I chose the styles to compliment this gorgeous location and I couldn't love her hair more. Daniel Ross Salon in Bonney Lake has done a phenomenal job working with my girls the past couple of years. Our stylist for Hannah's shoot was Mariah and I couldn't brag more about Hannah's hair! I wanted a softer, but still done look for her and this effortless half up, almost 1960's reminiscent loose pony couldn't have been better. You can tell Hannah felt like a million bucks and she looked it too!
The bridge shook with every car that passed, but we gritted our teeth and laughed it off. We felt the music and the quiet and captured away. This valley has a similar feeling to that of an open cave. You can almost feel the whistle from the air above the water. Sometimes eerie, sometimes mysterious, sometimes absolutely breathtaking. Driving further upstream we slipped up a snowy patch to park and gawked at the vastness. With a high river, we weren't able to get down to the bed, but with beauty coming from every angle it didn't matter. I love Hannah's confidence and it's always fantastic to have a subject that is willing to move and feel ease in front of the camera.
