Capturing the Canadian Plains Cree Spirit
 

This is Jaylene. 

After photographing her senior portraits several years ago, I was beyond excited when her mom requested our services once more when gifting Jaylene a very special type of portrait session. This time, we were asked to photograph her beautiful daughter in capturing her Canadian Plain Cree spirit. This was something we talked about during Jaylene's senior portrait session many years ago but decided to hold off on the idea... until recently. 

We brought Jaylene and her mom to one of our most versatile and favorite spots along the Central Oregon Coast. Immediately upon arrival, the sky opened up just enough for the sun to peek out with warming rays that danced along the creek, leaving a golden glow that seem to wrap around her.

The sun quickly disappeared under the PNW fog which provided the perfect covering for our next scenic area. As we set up our gear in the mossy greenery that covered a small forest, Jaylene's mom shared the story of her daughter's regalia, how and where it was made, detailing the intricate beadwork and the beautiful jewelry that accompanied the pieces with the feathers and fur that completed it all.

We completely fell in love with the regal feel of this particular session when featuring Jaylene in her exquisite regalia. 

As the temperature dropped during the sunset, we were able to capture a few more portraits in a more traditional regalia.
