You might remember Jessica from a previous post here on my little blog. Last year, I did a couple of shoots to grow my senior portrait portfolio. Jessica was a junior at the time, and was one of the lovely girls I had the opportunity to work with. You can see some of those pictures here. I was surprised and excited when she contacted me a couple months ago about shooting her senior portraits....like, for real this time! ;)
We shot in early-September in Clarkston, and we could not have had a more beautiful day. Jessica was so fun to photograph...not only is she completely laid back, she is absolutely gorgeous. We started downtown and then headed to a nearby park for a mixture of city and nature. We even got to finish with an amazing field of flowers. It could not have been more perfect. I am so in love with these photos!
Can I just take a moment to say that I love Jessica's necklace?
The shot below ended up being one of my favorites from her session. After I set up the shot, I wasn't so sure about the location or the angle, but then she laughed (sometimes my stupid attempts at making people laugh actually work!), the wind blew her hair just right, and I clicked the shutter. Photography jackpot.
And then it was time for some nature and dreamy sunset light...
And here's that amazing field of flowers we found. Pure luck. I went back to the same spot just a couple weeks later and they were long gone. Our timing was perfect, Jessica!
Jessica, thank you so much for choosing me for your senior portraits. You are a true beauty and it was an absolute pleasure capturing these photos! xo ~ denise
