Sometimes, you need to break away. You need to escape. I'm not talking about a vacation or weekend with the girlfriends. Sometimes, you need time alone, away. Here is what photographer Betsy had to share about the shoot:

I am so inspired by those who lead their life with deliberateness…who acknowledge the individual moments that make up each beautiful day. My purpose behind this Oregon Summer Reflection shoot was simply to acknowledge the fact that life moves so quickly. Summers are too short. And how we spend our moments, is how we spend our life. 

Micalah is a dear friend who leads her life with purpose and makes each moment more beautiful by just being aware of it’s passing. We both adore the beauty around us and relish moments where we can take the time to revel in that beauty. This summer afternoon in Oregon, I simply wanted to capture that feeling with such a kindred spirit modeling for me…I ached to capture the feeling of enjoying all the beauty around us. 

Together we breathed in the sweet, Oregon mountain air. We ran our hands over all the endless hedges of green and soft flower petals stretching up to meet us. I had
Micalah don some of her company's vintage clothing, aiming for a resort-feel with a bit of old romance to it. Running through the fresh green vines, dipping our toes in the koi-filled pond, and enjoying the affection a wandering feline lavished upon us…the afternoon was more blessed and beautiful than we had imagined. What a wonderful world we live in…so filled with God’s beautiful creation!
