The day was overcast, the clouds providing Portlanders a much needed break from the stifling heat wave. This is the first time Sonora or I had ever been to Sauvie's Island. We'd heard about it from a friend- pick your own grapes, sprawling fields of sunflowers, just nature for miles. When we arrived, the unmistakable fragrance of lavender greeted us and we were welcomed almost instantly.
This beautiful location, combined with a stunning model, made one happy photographer.
The lavender filled my boots and followed me home, the day lingering in it's scent.
