We’ve got a super sized blog post today because I tried to squeeze in all my favorites from both of Taylor’s sessions! We shot together back in the fall, then just a couple weeks ago for some updated spring portraits. I love seeing all these images put together, because they have different looks but are still totally cohesive and look great together!
Back in the fall, we shot Taylor’s senior portraits in Scottsboro, starting downtown at the famous Coca Cola wall. You’ve seen it before (like here, or here, or here) so you can probably tell I’m a big fan of shooting at this spot! From there, we wandered around the square for a bit and photographed another outfit before setting off to Jackson County Park for some less urban images.
Basically, I am obsessed with this set from Taylor’s fall session. The colors, the patterns, the leaves, the flowers– everything just worked together to make some seriously amazing photos. We found a beautiful patch of wildflowers and used to them to our advantage, in addition to a great little wooden bridge we stumbled upon. We also made our way down to the water for a few shots, and captured that great sunset light just before it disappeared!
Taylor does competitive cheer, so we ended our first session with some shots of her in her uniform with all her medals. And yes– there were a LOT of them. Taylor is super talented and her cheer team actually won nationals just a couple months ago– how awesome is that?!
For Taylor’s spring session, we headed to Little River Canyon for some photos by the water. Little River is one of my favorite places to shoot, because no matter how high or low the water level, there are always good places to shoot and they will vary depending on the time of year and the rainfall. This time around, the falls were roaring and reflecting that great golden sunlight for the backdrop to Taylor’s images here.
After finishing up at the falls, we drove to one of my favorite overlooks for Taylor’s final “dressy” outfit. I really love the color of this green dress and how well it matches all the stone and sky in this set of images. When we were done shooting here, we headed back to Rainsville for Taylor’s final look!
We couldn’t possibly do two senior sessions and NOT shoot some at the school in her cheer uniform! It’s always fun being back at my old high school, seeing things that haven’t changed (like the brick P on the front of the field house, or the PLAINVIEW HIGH SCHOOL sign at the front of the school) and all the things that have changed, which make me feel really old! Plainview seniors will always have a special place in my heart, and Taylor is no exception! So glad I got to photograph her lovely face not once, but twice during her senior year.
