When you first meet Linda Van Powell you are delightfully swept into her energy field of warmth and positivity. She wanted a portrait expressing her passion for Corvallis and gratitude for her clients.

It was a really fun photo shoot with, of course, a surprise or two. The blustery cold December evening ran counter to the feeling we wanted of warmth and welcome... but somehow she pulled it off! Also the deep winter light was a little more crisp than I wanted. We quickly made a large scrim from rolling racks and tablecloths. I love working on location because it always presents opportunities for creative thinking.

Many thanks to The VUE for loaning the use of their beautiful balcony!
