It’s spring and the trees are in full bloom in the Northwest. The most abundant being the many varities of Cherry Blossom.
There’s no shortage of interesting people to take portraits of in Tacoma, or whatever corner of the world you live in. These are the people I love shooting portraits of. Some are outwardly interesting, they draw you in with their features, their attire, the vibe that they exude. Others may be more introverted and may require a little coaxing to get them to relax and allow their true selves to be seen. I’m a fan of both camps, I can crack a joke and get a smile out of just about anyone but I didn’t have to tell many Dad jokes to get a radiant smile from Kaela. Her bright hair is a truthful insight into her disposition and her smile is infectious.
We drove around North Tacoma looking for some blooming cherry blossoms that we could shoot with and it didn’t take too long until we found a luscious tree on the corner of a street in the residential area in the North Slope district of Tacoma. The light that day was less than inspiring to say the least, but we still walked away with a handful of shots that I dig. Goes to show that you can make magic with your camera in less than 20 minutes.
