I had the privilege of meeting Olivia the summer before her senior session. She was a bridesmaid at a wedding that I photographed for her cousin. Being together on a wedding day was a bonus because she got to see me shooting at the most stressful times of the day! And senior sessions are anything but stressful!! They are relaxed, fun and carefree!
Like every senior session, I try to look for unique locations that fit their style. And because we were shooting Olivia’s session in July, the lily fields at Campbells Pottery were perfect! Olivia isn’t much of a girly girl so as soon as I asked her if she wanted to take off her shoes and go barefoot, she was all smiles!
As we explored the grounds of Campbells Pottery, we found the perfect spot next to a pond. And that pond was also home to 2 swans that were very curious! Now if you know anything about a goose or swans they can be very territorial! So the closer he (or she??!) came to us the more nervous Oliva, and I became! So we jokingly formed an escape plan, but in reality, we were both ready to bolt!
From a summer dress in the lily field to kicking a soccer ball in the setting sun Olivia and I had an incredible evening together! If you are interested in a senior session, or possibly you want to chat about ideas contact me anytime! I love getting creative!
