Venecia Battaglia, LMT: Portrait Session at the Washougal River
For Venecia - a grounded and strong biodynamic massage therapist - we wanted to reflect how the trees inspire her healing practice.
So, with a certain knowing, her chosen location was the Washougal River and forest in Washington.
When we arrived on our shoot day, to our surprise and excitement, we were the only ones on the river! Of course, if you know the social climate of PNW rivers,
you know that having solitude is a rare gift. That being said, we took full advantage of the spaciousness, climbing over big rock formations and heading towards
the center of the river to shoot. Finding that perfect mid-river spot was our goal, and it gave us both more freedom to play and be creative in the water.
My favorite part of the photo shoot? Watching Venecia joyfully splash in the river and the two of us celebrating with a skinny dip!
