Back when my husband and I were looking for our future home, I had one desire. That it would be on or near beautiful land that I could use for photography sessions! Well, we lucked out big time. Speedwell forge is surrounded by state game land filled with loads of hiking trails. And it gets better. A year after we moved in, the lake was refilled! HEYO! We have enjoyed biking, hiking, and kayaking along speedwell and love our little area we live in so much. Getting to use it for sessions this Fall has been so much fun! The reflections in the lake are like none I’ve ever seen.
When Nate and Justine hired me to do a 6 year anniversary session for them, I knew this would be the perfect spot! Justine and I have been “social media” friends for quite some time, but FINALLY got to meet in real life for this session, and I have a feeling we will be seeing lots more of one another over coffee and laughs in the near future! She was even so sweet to drop of a bag of goodies for me and our little baby boy on my doorstep. This girl is the real deal. A one of a kind gem! And Nate pairs with her perfectly with his genuine smile and kindness. What a power couple!
It was such a blessing to photograph them. Enjoy a handful of my favorites from the evening!
I had such a fun time photographing Tom and Lauren right in my very own backyard! Speedwell Lake was recently put back in which makes my heart so, so happy. We explored all around the woods and ended right in the lake. Here are a few of my favorites!
You guys. Does this session even need a blog post with it!? I mean, holy cow. Look at this girl! She is gorgeous from the inside out. These are hands down some of my favorite images I took in 2014. Kaylisha braved the severe cold and harsh wind to rock these shots. And let me tell you, she definitely rocked them. Ah, I love senior sessions. This was one of those “I feel totally reinspired and motivated creatively” sessions. The edit, the subject, the location, the cotton candy sunset. I can’t even. The awesome factor is real.
