I was trying so hard to wait and post these for a few more weeks, but I just can’t help myself :)!!

I realized that I have done a tone of my senior portrait sessions this year in “greenery” (if that’s even a word, let’s just use nature).  I  love to shoot out in nature/the country (there’s something about being outside in a field that just makes you feel at home and I LOVE IT!!).  I realized though that I haven’t been able to show off the fact that I also love to shoot in city-scapes.  There’s just something about shooting in alley ways, against old & new buildings that I love.  I really love that I can use my surroundings to capture light and then reflect it onto my client, or I can hide it ever so slightly and let it peak behind a water tower, I love being able to have clients stroll down the middle of the street with the town/city all around them, I simply love to shoot around buildings/structures.

All of that being said, I facebooked Marygrace (I shot her senior pictures a few months back) and asked her if she’d be up to doing a little photoshoot with me in a downtown area.  I am so thankful that she didn’t think I was crazy!!  She said yes, brought a trunk load of outfits and for a little over an hour we played around with our locations, outfits, shoes, chairs and the surroundings!!

Hopefully if you’ve wondered… “Does she shoot anywhere other than in the country?”, that these pictures show you…  because YES, I do… please don’t ever be afraid to ask me to shoot somewhere different (I’m up for new challenges and new places!!)

Marygrace, thank you for a fun Sunday afternoon!!!  Here’s a few shots from our downtown session…
