It's hard to imagine right now because it's almost summer, but this past winter really took its toll on me. It lingered on and on, snowing in mid April...I mean, come on mother nature! I was suffering from some serious seasonal depression. Once it finally started to get nice out, I was so excited to get out and shoot with Brianne since she decided to wait until spring to do her session. I had been scoping out the park that I wanted to use for part one of her session. There is a gorgeous Magnolia tree that TRIES to bloom every year. The last few years, the flowers just died off before they could bloom resulting in a very disappointing spring bloom season. THIS YEAR was gonna be different and I could feel it. So I told Brianne to be ready because once the blooms appeared, we were gonna make her session happen! I am so thankful to her for waiting it out and the images we got are some of the most beautiful I've ever taken IMO. Brianne has evolved into such a strong and independent young woman from the first time I met her. She's happy, more confident, focused on her goals and plans for her next steps in life and honestly ready to live her best life...I cannot wait to see her do and see amazing things in the world! This was just part one of her session so stayed tuned for part 2!
