A trip to Oregon and two senior photoshoots

It was hard to believe that the beautiful young lady standing before me was the grown up version of Cassidy that I had met almost a decade ago. Before I moved from Oregon to Oklahoma in 2012, I went to church with Cassidy and her whole family for a year or two. The same sweet, generous, and beautiful little girl has now grown up to be a senior, graduating with the class of 2021 from Clackamas High School (pronounced clack-uh-mus). 

As luck would have it, I planned a trip home this summer and was able to capture Cassidy and her wonderful friend, Lily, for their senior photos. These ladies have been the best of friends for a very, very long time, so it was only natural that they wanted their Senior Photoshoot Experiences to be together. Cassidy and Lily each had two-hour photoshoots which means we were out taking photos for a four-hour photoshoot extravaganza. They were fantastic! Modeling is much harder work than it looks like; they never complained, instead they took advantage of every moment of their experience. 

Oregon is just beautiful! These ladies wanted to get away from the city and spend their time about an hour south of Portland at Champoeg State Park (pronounced shampoo-ie) in the little town of Newberg, Oregon. The tall evergreen trees were a perfect backdrop for these ladies on an amazing Oregon summer day. While the weather was warm, it definitely wasn’t humid and I loved every minute of it. I joked that I will be summering in Oregon from now on, but oh, how I wish that could be true! 

Cassidy and Lily,
Y’all are simply amazing! Hold on to each other tight and continue to build the wonderful friendship that you have. Senior year is one of the best years in your life and it is even more adventurous, eventful, happy, and full of joy with a great best friend by your side. I know COVID has changed things in your world but I firmly believe that you two will find a way to have a great year regardless! I can’t thank you enough for giving me the honor of coming from Oklahoma to Oregon to take your senior pictures. You made me feel fabulously famous and your photoshoot will always hold a very special place in my heart. I hope you enjoy the highlights from your photoshoot. 

This Sperry High School senior wanted to have her photoshoot at Woodward Park in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Woodward is gorgeous in the summer and Alyssa is the perfect model for that setting. Check out her blog!
