ANNALIESE - Portland OR and Vancouver, WA Fashion Photographer

I had the privilege of photographing Annaliese for the first time in April 2014, when her Mom hired me to take pictures of Anna and her sisters. The very first picture in this sequence is the very first picture I took of her. It shows how the world lights up when she’s in front of the camera. It also explains why I suggested Mom get her signed with a modeling agency.

A few months later my ace stylist, Kariann Holbrook, and I did a solo session with Anna for her new agency, Sports + Lifestyle. When we'd finished getting all shots we needed, we asked Mom if we could experiment with some white-out makeup and and a little red lipstick. That’s when we found this stunning black and white picture as well as this spontaneous puppy picture, which we've nicknamed "Anna Meets Ralph Lauren's Springer Spaniel."

Since then, we’ve photographed Annaliese many more times, by herself and as part of The Fabulous Blondies. She’s been hired for some awesome professional shoots, including a catalog for the German skiwear company, Karstadt, and has grown into an even more amazing model than she was on that first day we met. 

She’s the Princess of the Spontaneous Puppy Portrait, an amazing kid, a part of our family. We're grateful everyday to make a living taking pictures, especially when they're of Miss Annaliese.

Tech Specs: First Image (Canon 7D at 1600 ISO, f4.5 at 1/125) Spontaneous Beauty & Ralph Lauren (Canon 7D at 640 ISO, 5.6 at 1/1000) Sassiest Blondie (Canon 5D MKII at 125 ISO, f10 at 1/160) Taking A Spin (Canon 5D MKIII at 250 ISO, f4 at 1/640). Lens for all was probably a 70-200mm f2.8.
