I'm a published wedding and portrait photographer located in a small town outside of Charlottesville. In addition to capturing beautiful images, I love spending time with my family, am freakishly good at word games (Hey Wheelmobile!), love an ice cold can of Coke or Dr. Pepper, know every line to Hocus Pocus and can never pass up a Chick-fil-A waffle fry or a trip to HomeGoods.
When Hannah shared her vision for her senior portraits, she was pretty clear about what she wanted–fall colors, barns and something unique among her classmates. I’d say we did a great job of checking off her wishlist. Last month, we headed out to Snead’s Asparagus Farm, which also operates a pumpkin patch and a Christmas tree farm, to find that rustic feel we were seeking. Not only were we able to use the barns, but the sunflower fields, pumpkin patch and fruit trees made for great photo spots. We also hunted down some fall color, and did I mention there were chickens? We had a great time wandering around the farm, stopping for photos along the way and the pictures turned out gorgeous, a few of which are included in this post. Hannah rocked her session. Congratulations on your senior year. Hope you have a great one!
I have to admit, I really geeked out about the light that was streaming through these trees. It was perfect!
Sometimes you tell your senior to pretend she’s walking through a tropical rainforest like on the Herbal Essences commercials.
