This past winter I did a giveaway for a complimentary shoot! Whenever I randomly decide to do one of these, there are no plans, just fate (and a random internet name picker) that picks out the winner and introduces me to new friends! For this past giveaway those new friends happened to be Raegan and Jake!
Originally, we had planned on doing this shoot in the Tri-Cities this past March, but sickness prevented us from moving forward. Lucky for us, it all worked in our favor because as the schedule change shifted our session to Bend! We started our session off with a Keystone (Jakes favorite) and dove right into capturing some moments of Raegan and Jake that have quickly become some of my personal favorites. We ended their session the same way we started it, with a Keystone – except this time both Raegan and Jake shotgunned their beers at one of the most iconic spots in Smith Rock and the result was PHENOMENAL! What I absolutely LOVED about those particular shots, was the fact that these two felt that it was so THEM – and honestly that’s my goal with each and every session I do.
Raegan and Jake – thank you guys SO MUCH for such a freaking fun afternoon! I seriously enjoyed getting to know you guys over a beer in one of the best state parks Oregon has to offer! Can’t wait till our paths cross again (either with a puppy or at Juniper Dunes!!)
