This senior session was extra special for me to do. Erin is my best friends daughter, who was born exactly 364 days after my daughter. It has been fun watching her grow up and was excited to do her Senior pictures. I traveled to Oneonta, NY for this session. It was a beautiful late summer day.
We started the photo session in Erin's backyard. We had to trek up a hill, step through the mud to get to the pile of rocks that I wanted to have Erin sit on. We also found some other neat spots up in the woods behind her house.
Erin's mom wanted to go to Erin's school to get some shots by the school. Erin didn't like this idea much...but we went anyway. On our way out of the school yard we saw a walking path with a bridge. We decided to go there instead. I love these shots.
When doing senior sessions we have the extra time to change outfits and change locations. We headed downtown to find an alley. We found a perfect spot. I love the old brick and destressed look. It really makes for interesting backgrounds.
We had one more spot we wanted to try so we headed towards a creek that ran through town and crossed over some railroad tracks. I said "Erin, it would look awesome if you sat on the tracks." She was a bit nervous at first, but when she saw how neat the pictures looked she started to relax. I think these couple are my favorite shots.
Erin, Thank you for letting me capture this special time in your life. You are a beautiful young lady and I know you will do great things in your future.
