Normally I try to think of a title that describes the shoot and the person but I try to be a bit creative, today I have to throw creativity out the window and just tell it like it is, everything about this shoot including Alex was simply gorgeous!
We decided to meet at the DRA(Damariscotta River Association) and I was excited to finally shoot there, it looked really beautiful from the road every time I drove by. SooOoo since I had never actually stopped and explored the place Paul and I decided to drive over earlier in the day and explore. Rolling green fields, a sparkling blue pond, gorgeous old oaks and of course the river were all there, you just had to walk to get to them. We set out to walk down to the river so I could see if I could find any spots I really wanted to bring Alex, it was a nice walk.... down...... back up, the hill of death, not so much. It was as I was halfway up said hill that I decided two things, I MUST start excercising and no way was I bringing Alex down over that hill because it would mean me having to walk back up it. Hill of Death twice in one day was a great big HECK NO. Being the enterprising girl that I am I found lots of great views and sweet spots to photograph Alex in right there at the top of the hill. :)
Alex and her Mum arrived and we got right down to business, or not, maybe we talked a bit about school first. :)
Alex was ready though and pulled out all her best poses, this girl is a pro!
A total PRO.. just look at those eyes... that smile..... I love my job!
After the Hill of Death I knew I needed another location to get just a bit more diversity and I knew just the place... the other half of the DRA! What was here you ask? Rolling green fields(filled with prickles, just ask Alex), old barns, silos and buildings galore and some pretty awesome metal sculptures. Kind of a photographers dream really.
I loved this little alley between two of the barns/outbuildings and Alex made it fabulous!
PS don't you think her dress is to die for?! LooOoove it!
An old silo and chippy painted walls? Yes please! Again Alex rocking it out, girl is amazing!
Did I mention she is also a ballet dancer, en pointe no less.. yeah...... like I said...
Simply Gorgeous <3
Thank you so much Alex and Roxanne for trusting us with your senior photos. We had a great time wandering and chatting and taking pictures. And Alex you ROCK you didn't complain once even when you I unknowingly had you walk straight into the middle of the prickley field.
