Ellie is a local model and an avid animal lover.  She has some really cool dogs and a couple of draft horses.  We made plans to do a shoot at Ocean Shores with her dogs and some of her friends.  Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t very cooperative that day.  It was cold, windy, and sprinkling throughout the day.  Ellie and her friends were troopers and made the best of the weather conditions.  My camera gear is weather sealed, so no worries about damage from the moisture.  Instead of the typical sunny beach shots, I decided to make the entire set black and white to reflect the mood of the day.  It turned out to be a really fun day, in large part due to Ellie’s unquenchable spirit and exuberance.
