I was very happy to be able to take Emily’s senior pictures today. I was slightly apprehensive when I woke up and it was a gorgeous, cloudless day out, a brisk 25 degrees, and a bright sun shining as early as 9:30. That may sound strange, but harsh sunlight is the most difficult light to photograph for me! But once we got to our location I felt more and more confident using the sun (and the shade) to my advantage. And not only that, but Emily was a perfect model – beautiful, with an easy smile! Here are a few of my favorites from the day.
