I just got back from the most magical trip along the Oregon Coast with a group of amazing photographer friends! We all needed a little getaway from reality so we hopped in the car and headed to the beautiful beaches of Oregon to escape for a bit. Obviously we wanted to do some shooting while we were there so we dragged along the beautiful Shanya Krievins to model for us. Shanya also happens to be a hair and makeup artist and just a super cool human in general, so it made shooting with her that much better. The sun was our friend and helped cast beautiful golden light on her, making the entire session feel even more like a fairytale and every time I look back at these photos I have to catch my breath for a minute. If you haven’t had the chance to explore the Pacific Northwest, just do it. I promise you won’t regret it!
