Connor + Kiri | Newport, OR

Here are the final images from this year's Art Retreat! I'm not going to lie, this series of photos was a challenge. We shot at night, and my camera does not do well with night photos. I tried to experiment a little bit with my flash, but I got flustered when it wasn't working and I hate wasting time, so I nixed that idea and relied on many people's cell phone flashlights. So thank you to everyone who helped light the scenes! 

The images I did get, however, I am incredibly happy with. Connor and Kiri are both beautiful and wonderful people to work with, and I'm so thankful they were willing to drive to the beach to be my subjects. :)

Lehman | Newport Beach, OR

This is one thing I love about photography. It's not always about the concept, or getting all the camera settings right, or the best lighting situation, but it's simply about having fun. Maybe this is the "art for art's sake" concept, but regardless, I loved the feeling of running through the ocean, photographing Lehman, and just acting generally carefree. I didn't worry too much about focus, or light, or posing, or anything, but just clicked away. Perhaps not some of my most technically correct or creative photos, but I love this because it helps me remember all the good parts of art retreat and how amazing it is when creative people come together.
