It’s always a pleasure to be able to employ one of the talented and diverse ladies of Portland, and we thought you might like to know more about them, so we will be introducing them on the blog in a new series called, “Better Know a Lille Gal.” Our newest gal, Summer, is best known as a fine art and portrait photographer. She shot the gorgeous photos of Lille featured in this post. She has been using photography as a creative outlet since she was a teenager. Her work is supported by her warm and empathetic ease with people, intuitive eye, and her lifelong affinity for nature. She combines the beauty of the human form with natural landscapes. Summer’s purpose in her photography shoots is to give people the opportunity and space to express sides of themselves they may not have explored deeply before. She believes the best photography honors the essence of a moment, or the soul of the subject. Through photography, Summer has the ability to show people they are inherently their own living masterpieces. Please check out her beautiful site and consider hiring her if you’re looking for a professional photographer. We are so happy to welcome her to the Lille team and look forward to showcasing more of her work!
