Let me just start this off by saying, this equestrian session may be my most favorite session of all time! Karlie and her stunning horses were nothing short of a DREAM to work with and they helped me bring my vision for this shoot to life so perfectly. Would you believe me if I told you Dillon, the chestnut, hadn't been ridden in TWO YEARS before this shoot, and he didn't even bat an eye when Karlie hopped on in a long flowy dress! Dillon and Kilo, the gorgeous Appaloosa, were SO well behaved, and Karlie slayed in that white maxi dress. Seriously, it doesn't get any more magical than this!
Each year Shoot and Share throws a MASSIVE international photography contest, with over 300,000 images entered by hundreds of thousands of photographers, and this year I went all in and entered 50 images from my 2016 sessions. The winning images were unbelievably amazing and I am SO honored to have so many of my images place in the top 30%! Check out my personal results below, and you can see all the contest results here: http://shootandshare.com/photo-contest/
When I found this beautiful blue dress I just KNEW I had to plan a shoot around it, and luckily Taylor didn't mind braving the 20 degree weather to model for me! Doing a shoot completely for myself, and getting to create images that speak to my soul without worrying about whether or not anyone else likes them was SO refreshing, and I am so happy with how this gorgeous set turned out. Expect many more mini styled shoots like this this year!
Lily is a senior at Linganore High School who plans to major in Drama in college. For her gorgeous fall session, we spent the evening exploring the Union Mills Homestead and finished at a pretty little flowery field just down the road. Lily was such a natural in front of the camera and I had so much trouble narrowing down to her final images! Press play on the first image below, then enjoy some of my favorites from her fall senior portrait session.
