Senior Session at Lake Padden by Amanda Powell

Grace

Class of 2020

Echoing the beauty and stillness around her, in a place she grew up in.

Grace’s session was a peaceful walk around a lake she’s grown up going to. The colors during this day were spectacular. Diffused, gorgeous pacific northwest light showed up for us in the best way.

I’ve learned recently that the schools around here let students turn in their own photos for yearbook publication. This is just awesome. The individuality allowed, and the lack of needing a uniform look makes senior sessions all the more fun for me, and hopefully you all as well. I’ve also learned we have about a month before photos need to be turned in. There’s still time to get something planned, shot, edited, and right back to you! Let’s talk :-)

Bellingham Editorial Art Project by Amanda Powell

Who Fears Death?

What, when we breath our last?

What becomes of the processes, the structure, the feelings, the thoughts, in the end?

Did our actions matter? How we held ourselves? Who we loved? What we created?

Thoughts on the uncertainties of being human.


(I have an art series in the works which will take some time and effort to complete. These images are extra from the initial shoot for that project. THANKS to my model Becky and hairstylist Areca for helping me get the first part created. I can’t wait to share.)

Blushing Willows Spring Session by Amanda Powell

Spring has been beautiful, colorful, bright, and just lovely.

Fitting, because these photos feel like all of that. This momma and her girls feel like all of that.

Mothers Day is coming up, and I wish any biological moms, god moms, people who have mothered children, even if they haven't birthed them, a time of being appreciated.

Here's to Mom's who work hard, who pursue their dreams, who sacrifice those dreams, who don't sacrifice, but still find a way to be there for their kids. Who set the example for their children. Who embody the many variations of feminine strength. Not of perfection, but of progress. A massive shout out to those who don't have children, but care for them like they were their own. Who wipe up, clean up, build up, and hold the place together. Who are inconsistent in parenting because they are human, but never in love.  

Have a great week, ladies.
