Portland Oireachtas session - The Esplanade with Meghan!

Portland was amazing!! Not only did Mother Nature bring sunny skies all weekend long, but my first session of the weekend introduced me to the fabulous Meghan Sherry from Dillon Magh Adhair in San Francisco.

Meghan was wonderful! Our original plan was to shoot around the Oregon Convention Center (the Oireachtas venue), but since the weather was gorgeous, I asked Meghan if she’d be up for walking down the road to catch a glimpse of the waterfront. Of course she was! We started off at the pedestrian bridge, which opened up and framed Meghan like her own personal stage. It was fantastic! Meghan took advantage of the setting with some gorgeous jumps and hop downs. As the clouds moved in and out, the change in lighting softened or highlighted Meghan in a way that gave the exact same pose of hers 10 different looks. From there, we found a great rail that overlooked the Willamette River. The panoramic shot below of Meghan is one of my absolute favorites of the weekend. The way down to the the Eastbank Esplanade was about 5 flights of stairs, but that didn’t stop this trained super star! We finished our session along the water and took in the incredible (and unexpected!) weather.

I look forward to working with Meghan again!
