Senior Portraits || Bradyn || Historic Red Hill, VA || Patrick Henry's Plantation

Spent a gorgeous afternoon shooting Bradyn's portraits at the beautiful, historic Red Hill Plantation - Patrick Henry's last home. 

Bradyn and his mom chose the location and though it was a good two hours away, the long hours in the car were absolutely worth it! The plantation was beautiful - peaceful with simple, natural, yet stunning scenery - and the historic and natural elements were simply perfect for Bradyn's senior portraits. 

This was such a fun session to do (thanks so much, Bradyn and Mrs. C.!) and listening to Bradyn play his violin for some of the shots was amazing - I hated to make him stop to move to the next spot! Bradyn is such an incredible musician and it was a true honor to be able to capture his senior portraits.

Family Portraits || the B. Family || Wake Forest, NC || Southeastern Baptist Seminary

Had another wonderful time with this fun family. You might remember them from last year. I was asked to photograph their beautiful family again, which was such an privilege!

They chose the gorgeous Southeastern Baptist Seminary grounds for their location (where I also photographed their eldest daughter earlier this summer) - it was simply perfect. I've really enjoyed getting to know that spot better and loved shooting around the lovely scenery.

Thanks so much, dear B.'s for making this such a great session!

Silly time!

Family Portraits || the L. family || Wake Forest, North Carolina || Joyner Park

Got to spend a little but of time with this precious family - we were finishing up corporate portraits for their family business and ended the day with a few family shots.

Their two little ones were so darling - though they weren't so sure about me! Normally I have a good hour or two to win over the little guys I'm photographing, but we only had about 15 minutes today. Big sister ended up smiling for a couple of shots and grandma and grandpa (who were behind the scenes) were a big help.

(As an aside, the images below are one of the reasons why I'm a huge fan of shooting during the Golden Hour - love that pretty, warm light!)
