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.
