Dutch Valley days

The Whiskey Ginger took to the road last fall for a cross-country expedition. Our second stop along the journey was in Estacada, Oregon to take some pictures for a cannabis dispensary. During our three day stay, we snapped photos of our model, Betsy, in a custom-designed corset to match the Dutch Valley theme. We wandered through the pine tree nursery surrounding the property taking some stunning shots, and attempted to capture the essence of Dutch Valley.

Behind the scenes

The Dutch Valley shoot began with a custom designed corset, made by Rikki Peach in Bozeman. Once we got the fitting right, and after a few initial shots in Bozeman, Loni, Brett, and Betsy headed to the cannabis farm in Estacada, Oregon to take some photos on the farm. The goal was to capture our Dutch Valley girl in candid poses that Loni could then illustrate from. We ended up snapping several hundred photos, and had a wealth of options by the end of our stay.
