Heather's Shoot

Tonight I had the opportunity to have a photo shoot with a friend of our family. This young woman is one of the most extraordinary people I know. She's smart and beautiful. Musically talented. Creative and mature -- and humble about it all. And she is graduating this year -- I can hardly believe it! I've offered to take her graduation photos and, lucky for me, she accepted. I'm excited!
Anyway, I went to her family farm and we went on a "photo walk" together so that I could take a few photos of her in the place that she loves the most. On the farm, they have a wonderful collection of old buildings and vehicles, ponds, grasses that make a perfect backdrop for casual photos. The sun was setting with a warm glow and all the conditions were perfect.

Here are some of the photos I managed to capture. Heather makes a lovely subject to photograph and I am so pleased with the way they turned out!





And a little more on the artistic side:


And, of course, at least one deserves some Photoshop treatment:

Thanks for looking! And thanks, Heather, for the shoot.
