Bright, & Airy Sunflower Field Session || Dewberry Farm

Dewberry Farm is the sweetest little event venue tucked into the heart of Kernersville, North Carolina. Once you arrive on the property you see the sunflower field on your right, along with their beautiful horses roaming around in the field next to it, and then the manor itself is just beautiful! I had the privilege of speaking with Wendi Johnson, one of the owners of the property before we arrived, and she was so accommodating. Since the property involves a lot of walking, she let us use one of the golf carts to ride from location to location.

This session was just as special for me, as it was for the amazing young lady I had the privilege of photographing. I would like for you to meet Karli Bullins, and her amazing, assistant/golf cart chauffeur, boyfriend Jeremy. I’ve known Karli for a total of 5 years this year, and to be able to do a senior session re-do was a highlight! You are probably wondering what in this world is a senior session re-do? Well, she graduated in 2015, but never had her images professionally done.  So we collaborated together, and we made it happen.

I hope these images make you smile, just as much as they made me smile. She has such a bubbly, personality that is so contagious, even through imagery.

Enjoy!

Cana Virginia Senior Session

When Brady first mentioned he wanted me to his senior session I was delighted. When he mentioned he had 8 horses, I have to admit I turned back into a little kid. Everything within me was jumping up, and down that I would get to be near horses again, and we had quite an adventure on this shoot.

We met at this house, and drove down to his grandfather’s property which has an amazing view of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance. We started our shoot at this beautiful oak tree with ivy running, and twisting up the sides.

I love when the sun starts getting low, because it creates this nice silhouette.

Getting to this beautiful river was quite an adventure. We took Brady’s ranger, and drove down some steep roads, went past his deer hunting stand, across a beautiful open field, and finally ended up at the river. These shots look effortless, but don’t be fooled. Those river rocks were super sharp, and I may have almost face planted a couple times, but it was the best!

This beautiful horses name is Shadow. Brady has been riding horses since he was 3 years old, so he knows a thing or two. He even got Shadow to pose for me with the help of his dad.

Cross Rail Farms Portrait Session

Brianna has recently moved from Florida here to North Carolina, and was interested in having her portrait session done doing something she loves. She loves being around horses, and loves the overall country scene, so Cross Rail Farms was the perfect place. She takes horse back riding lessons there when she can.

She lights up so much when she is around these animals, and doing something she loves. So I hope you enjoy these images from Brianna’s session.

This is her favorite horse, and the one that she takes lessons with. The horse started moving just a little bit as we were trying to hold her still, and lots of laughter broke out during these images.

How adorable is this outfit?

Abby Bedsaul North Carolina Senior Portrait Session

It is officially Abby’s senior year in school, and I am so proud of her, and all her accomplishments. She is a kind hearted person with a passion for dancing with the Rhythm on Main company here in our town. I have seen this girl dance before, and she blew me away. Loved it! So naturally when she contacted me to do her senior portraits I was thrilled, and even more thrilled when she explained that she had a small sunflower patch in her backyard.

I hope you enjoy looking at these senior images as much as I enjoyed taking them. 🙂

We had to fight to the sun just a tad bit, and the rain. The sunflowers on the back side were dying out, and losing their petals. So we used the front side, and every time I started to snap, the sun would pop out from behind the clouds. But we still made it work, and had so much doing it.

When she told me she had bubbles to use for the shoot, I already had the images in my head, and knew how I wanted to use them. A special thank you to her mom for helping us out with these shots.
