With Meredith Adelaide — Springtime in Portland

Springtime in Portland is the business. Practically everything in the city gets covered in flowers, including the trees. There’s nothing quite like a backlit cherry tree in full bloom against a bright blue sky. Needless to say, though, days like that are somewhat rare. In March, Portland is still very much in the depths of its rainy season. So a few days ago, on a particularly sunny afternoon, I found myself roaming my friend’s neighborhood, trying to grab shots of the cherry blossoms while the gettin was good.

But after just a few minutes of walking, I realized that this was an occasion for friends. So after a moment of contemplation, a couple of quick texts to the ever-beautiful Meredith Adelaide, and we were off.

A walk around the block and one roll of film later, this is what we had. Quick and easy and awesome.

    Beutiful. Just love the flower theme on skirt and background, well composed pictures. Number 7 is fantastic. That picture is so much more than what it shows.

    Wow, these are intimate, interesting, artful – altogether lovely to behold. Inspires me to try calling up my friends for photographs more often. How lucky your friend is to have these photos forever.

    So you are all kinds of spectacular. Love these images – they move me in a way that I cannot describe. The one with the yellow flowers – a.m.a.z.i.n.g. – what an incredible talent you are. xx Tam

    I love the way you include natural elements in many of your portraits.. It adds another layer of beauty that complements each subject so well.

    This is the most inspiring post I have seen for a long time.
    In a hot day in the south of Andalucía, I can feel the freshness of the bloom around you.
