Kate Paul: Behind the Pageantry

So, I was completely honored to shoot with Kate Paul, our very own Miss Oregon, USA. She was every bit the beautiful, sweet girl you'd expect, but definitely with a spark of spontaneity and fun!
When I asked her to throw on some undies and a tie up her shirt to wade into the somewhat freezing river, she just smiled and walked right in. Fearless.
Through out the day of prep, then driving, then walking all over the sandy beach to find a good shoot spot, I learned a bit about this funny, Bend native. She is actually kind of a small town girl like myself, who felt a bit repressed by her surroundings and lack of options. She fell into the USA pageant due to a curious disposition and made it all the way to the title through sheer will (and her fabulous Charisma doesn't hurt).

Anyhow, I wanted to interpret Kate with a focus on her softer, more feminine side. All glitter and crowns cast aside. And this is what we came out with:
