I love shooting in rustic locations– fields of wildflowers, old dirt roads, tree covered hollows– but I really love shooting in urban areas, and finding a place that isn’t classically “pretty” to turn into a great spot to shoot. This was the case for Savannah’s senior session, and she went along with every ridiculous location I made us stop at. It was another freezing day, we had to take breaks to warm up or throw a jacket over Savannah, and Savannah’s poor mom was recovering from being sick. In spite of it all, we made the most of our time together and got some images that are some of my favorite from the whole year! I was immediately inspired by Savannah’s wardrobe, and I especially loved her new Michael Kors bag (I admit it. I’m obsessed with all things MK) and I chose each location with the next outfit in mind.
It was still early enough in the year to find a few things still in bloom, including a gorgeous red-leafed tree that was the perfect background accent for Savannah’s printed scarf. I wanted to steal that great leopard print blazer she brought, but Savannah was totally rocking it! I made sure we got some “supermodel” shots with it and her MK bag. I know my seniors just love it when I tell them “Yeah, just pretend you’re a model on a catwalk. It’s super easy!” 😉 We wrapped up our session with one of my favorite spots in Scottsboro, a wrought iron spiral staircase. I’m not even sure there’s a door at the top, but it makes for some amazing portraits! When we were all done, Savannah stayed out in the cold so I could snap a couple iPhone pics for IG and Snapchat– she was dedicated and I loved that!
