Pioneer Square Portrait Session / by Victoria Lemos

Not too long ago I worked with Ashlee, an aspiring singer who has just started a YouTube channel for her singing videos. She wanted photos for social media use and even opted to get her makeup done by my sister and fellow freelancer, Nicole (@nicioleandrea_mua on Instagram). 

I wanted to capture her personality, and Pioneer Square was the perfect location for bringing character to the images. We started shooting at a local coffee shop and then began walking through the streets and alleyways. The portraits came out beautiful, and I was pleased with her choice of outfits too. It was supposed to rain the entire day, but thankfully we shot during a window in between light showers. The gloom provided the most gorgeous, natural lighting. Nicole did a great job with her makeup too, which worked to enhance Ashlee's natural beauty. 

Here are a few of my favorite portraits! Check out Ashlee on her YouTube channel (Ashlee Tarro) and follow Nicole on Instagram @nicoleandrea_mua!
