When Jessica and I met up to shoot she told me that every photographer that had ever photographed her had only wanted to take photos of a “pretty blonde”. I wanted to see her as more than that. Noone had ever talked to her or gotten to know her. She had never been photographed more as she dressed, with her love of dance, and not just a pretty blonde girl. She had also never had any photos which were edgy or a little darker. The rainy day we shot seemed perfect for that. We shot around an outdoor garden area at Portland State University, and after the rain got heavy we ducked into a nearby parking garage for a couple shots.
