I love fun photo shoots especially when the location turns out amazing. I recently took Senior pictures for a great girl who is strikingly beautiful inside and out.
This is how it went....
We started out the shoot at her house in the front and back yards where her and her little brother used to play when they were young. Selecting personal and memory filled locations makes any portrait session even more special.
An outfit and location change proved to be the perfect recipe to our time together. We had planned on shooting near this tree cropping where the tall grasses were the perfect color and height for the shots, but along the way we stopped at an open meadow where the afternoon sunlight was magical. I'm so glad we did because many of the shots were my favorites.
Awe, I love this one, I think I could look at it all day.
Speaking about my self containment...the next set of shots nearly made me faint! We decided that it would be really fun to get her in the water and take some shots. When I saw the scene before me I was filled with such excitement that I felt like bursting out screaming to the world..."do you see this beauty before me!" but no one was around to listen to my ranting except the two of us, so I bottled up my emotions, threw them on the shore, and got into the water with her.
The water was cold but we didn't notice too much, we were a little more concerned about falling in too far or what was lurking around our feet. We were laughing and having so much fun that nothing really mattered except getting the perfect shots.
The perfect ending to a perfect shoot!
