I love when I get a full circle moment and am asked to photograph a long time friend or one of their kids. Riley’s mom and I went to high school together and actually lived next door to each other for a few years before she graduated and moved out of the house. She was a year older than me and when one of her kids was getting ready to graduate from high school, she asked if I could come down to Charlotte to document this time for them.
Of course I said yes and we lucked out with a beautiful spring like day in the end of February for this session! The park we chose was full on the day of this shoot as there were many people out enjoying the pre-spring spring like weather. After we walked ALL around the park for some great scenes and nature pictures, we went to Riley’s high school and we lucked out because the gate to get into the field was open! We were able to take some pictures with her beloved bug (car) and the field in the background as well as get ON the field and we got some amazingly beautiful light as the sun was setting.
We couldn’t have timed this better!
Thank you so much Riley & Dana for having me out! I had a BLAST and I love what memories we were able to capture that day!
