The way this session came about, the soft sunlight, the bright green scenery and fields covered in rainbows of flowers – all together made for one amazing afternoon, for Kate and for me. I met Kate’s family over 8 years ago when I decided to start a photography business. Her family was one of my first official family portrait sessions. Kate must have been ten or eleven. I had talked *hopefully* over the years of doing her senior portraits when it came time, but there’s always so many turns in life, you just never know.
Earlier this summer I came across one of my old postcard ads with a photo of Kate’s younger sister. It prompted me to reach out to Kate’s mom and say hello. Within a couple hours she wrote me back – her and Kate had just been discussing senior photo options and packages. They knew I moved to Atlanta…but they didn’t know I was headed back for some time up at my cabin. Long –> short, they had about a 10 day window for her portraits, and I had booked my cabin stay over the same time. We discussed a few details and fate sealed the deal.
Some moments (and some photographs) are simply meant to be.
…Kate, hoping you’ll smile wide over the last photos on this post. I sure did – we’ve both grown!
