At the end of March, the Made U Look girls, fresh into Portland after a 14 hour drive from Bakersfield, swung by my house for a pre-game hangout. When it came time to line up a photographer for The Blogcademy, they were at the very top of our list — their style has always stood out to me because the majority of their photos are shot on a variety of film cameras. I love that sense of mystery because really, you never know what you’re going to get and the results are always so varied. I always feel that sense of suspense creeping up, just waiting to see what they captured and it’s always even better than I could imagine.
Made U Look had perfect timing: when they arrived, my entire S.E. Portland neighborhood was full-on in bloom. That week, the usual drizzly Portland weather had decided to part for us and it didn’t rain for a record five days straight (haha).
Only one photography team could convince me to crawl into my grumpy neighbor’s yard and pose in his flowers: Made U Look, of course. As I looked on at Gala, there was a creepy undercurrent…an element of a dark Alice In Wonderland vibe permeated the shoot.
