Meet Arianna, class of 2013. Just a couple of times per year, I photograph senior portrait sessions at Preston Castle in Ione. The place is just wonderfully dilapidated and a perfect place for a session like this.
I’ve known the Carvalho family for a while and knew that between Stephanie’s (mom) makeup skills and Arianna’s styling, we would be in for an adventure. I thought doing a bit of a concept would be fun and had some ideas I shared with Arianna. Of course she just ran with them. Our “story” was the girl who always played dress up and could only imagine herself with wonderful wardrobe/hair & makeup. Time of course got away from us (it always does) but we all had an incredible experience there. Thank you Arianna and Stephanie for your efforts (and impromptu wardrobe rack), I had such a great day. Here are some faves.
Those look great! I was anxious to see them after you told me about the shoot. Love the dresses!
I saw you at After Dark in Portland. I just love your work- it’s so inspiring.
Thank you Rebecca!
