Sophia : class of 2017 senior {by meredith}

This session sticks out in my memory for a couple reasons. First off, it actually is a little trip down memory lane because we shot this last summer…eek bad blogger on me for just now finally sharing it! Second we shot at the beautiful Bowood Farms, which is right down the street from our studio. It was awesome for a senior session, with so many options of pretty backdrops all right next to each other. Always a bonus for a photographer when you can get multiple looks so close together! And last and maybe the most memorable moment of this session…we got rained out during the third outfit! It all worked out in the end, but I’m still a little ticked at the multiple weather forecasts that said rain wouldn’t be coming in til 11pm or later. What can you do? Since we had the weather change up on us, I actually got to do a fun part two with Sophia to shoot that last outfit, and it was after she had cut off 11 inches of her hair! I think it’s so awesome to donate like that, and that we got to shoot the different style…normally a hair change isn’t that drastic ;)

Let’s get started at Bowood…this gorgeous navy dress is from The Vault, an amazing luxury resale store in Brentwood. If you like to shop the labels, definitely worth checking out!

One of my favorite sections…these flowers (which I believe are hydrangea but don’t quote me on that) were so so pretty.

So these last couple shots by the doors and then we headed back to the studio to change outfits….and heard thunder.

I was still hopeful we could get in one more look and Sophia was game to try it so we went to the park…and had to sit in the car for a good 15 minutes while the sky let out a torrential downpour. I figured well maybe we should try and do some rain shots since I normally never have that option! The light ended up being really pretty so it was worth it! And then of course after shooting another half hour or so, the sun came back out when we were both soaked and hair ruined. Thanks mother nature ;)

Thanks again for being such a good sport Sophia, I love how your session turned out in the end, even if it took us a little extra time to finish it :) – Meredith
