Sawnee Mountain Solo Photoshoot
Atlanta Family Photographer
Sometimes the most amazing pieces come together and something truly magical happens. When Elena approached me about doing a personal session for her birthday, I was elated, and will admit, I’m elated any time I get an inquiry, but I was also a little nervous. I haven’t done a solo shoot or a model shoot in almost a year, and my style has changed so much this year I wasn’t sure how I would approach it. I also knew I’ve been wanting to do a mountaintop session for a long time, so when I mentioned it to her she mediately jumped at the chance.
We got to Sawnee Mountain preserve on a cool Saturday evening in September. The sun was setting and it was a perfectly clear day, we made our way up a short 1 mile hike, taking the Indian seats trail, only to find a location taken up by quite a few mountain goers. But we were able to find a spot where we started shooting, while the sun was still a little high, around 7pm, and then moved around a little bit till about 7:30 when the son was dipping just below the horizon and the sky turned purple and red and blue.
I must admit it was probably the most inspiring session I’ve had in a long time, and I’ve had some amazing sessions lately. It was also one of those sessions where I was learning as I go, fiddling with my settings, playing with angles, all while trying to hold onto the rocks and not fall down. It was a very exhilarating shoot and the results I are probably some of my best ever, I am very proud of this session. I am really looking forward to shooting more solo portrait sessions, because let’s face it, when you look good and you feel good you should really document it while you still got it, I am all about making my clients feel most beautiful and secure during the session, so after they see the results they’re even more excited.
So don’t wait long, now is the perfect time to schedule a solo portrait session, all about you. Let me help you create some one of a kind fine art portraits for you that you will treasure forever and pass on to your children and grandchildren to look at and admire. Celebrate your success and your awesomeness. Call 707-484-0028 or email today.
