Austin - Rustburg High - Class of 2017 {Virginia Senior Photography}

We took these senior portraits of Austin recently and included his dog Maggie in a few too! His session came together really well!  The location, wardrobe, lighting and posing just all meshed together to create a few of my favorite from this senior season.  

I love the ones with the hay bale.  The light just created a perfect back light for Austin in his camo to create a rich warm portrait!!!  As well as his relaxed poses.  It's so important to be relaxed during your sessions, it can make all the difference!  

Austin is a member of the Rustburg Baseball team that won the State Championship!  Our community is very proud!  He is sporting his championship ring in his baseball pics!!! 

Autumn - Rustburg High - Class of 2017 {Virginia Senior Photography}

I met up with this pretty young lady last Sunday at Sweet Briar College.  It's a popular photography location due to the fact that it's gorgeous and offers a variety of looks.  It was very, very windy in spots.  But we took our time and made it work.  We had to wait for a gust or two.  I like the movement it gave to her hair in some of the images too!  

I really enjoyed working the Autumn!  Appropriate that we did her session in the fall!  Have a great senior year.  It will fly by!  

Diamond - Rustburg High - Class of 2017 {Lynchburg Virginia Senior Photographer}

I met Diamond at a local farm and man oh man did we get some great shots.  The lay of the land gave us a great view of the mountain and the sunset.  

Then we did a shoot at Smith Mountain Lake.  It started to rain when we got there and we worked through the drizzle.  I asked her if she wanted to stop and she said no so we went with it.  Then it started to pour!  We had to take a little break during a major downpour then started back up once it passed.  

I had a great time working with Diamond and her family!  I hope you are able to enjoy these images for many years to come!!!!   

Madi - Rustburg High - Class of 2017 {Lynchburg Virginia Senior Photographer}

Madi is a Senior at Rustburg High school.  She plays soccer!  A lot of soccer.  Indoor, travel, and for her high school!  So of course we had to do a soccer session.  We were able to get permission to use the field at Lynchburg College.  They have a beautiful turf field.  

For regular session we met in downtown Lynchburg.  We started in a parking lot, then went to the stairs leading to bluff walk.  We found a spot full of wild flowers and took full advantage of those.  She loves to read, so we included that into some of her portraits.   I had a great time working with Madi and meeting her family!  She hopes to attend UVA after high school!  

Madi, have a great senior year and I wish you all the luck in your final year and beyond!  

Dylan - Rustburg High - Class of 2017 (Lynchburg Virginia Senior Photographer}

Dylan is a model in the making.  He was great to shoot.  It's no real magic to taking great pictures, it's really just being comfortable and relaxing.  Dylan was relaxed during his shoot and it shows.  

I enjoyed shooting him at the Rustburg Volunteer Fire Department.  That was a first for me and I always enjoy shooting something different.  We also shot at a pond since he loves fishing and on a farm.  The house we photographed at was about to fall down but it was a great backdrop for his portraits!   

Enjoy your senior year Dylan, it will go fast!
