I had been looking forward to shooting Megan's senior portraits ever since we met for their initial consultation at Panera but our first scheduled date was interrupted by rainy weather. We finally met up last week to shoot in downtown Greensboro. Lots of clients choose downtown as a favorite place to have at least part of their session done but I still love shooting there! It's always changing and no two sessions are the same :)
The sunlight was so perfect when we started shooting and even though Megan said she was pretty nervous, she didn't look it at all!
I love this classic black and white.
I couldn't get enough of Megan's beautiful smile :) She's so gorgeous!
I'm pretty sure this is one of my favorites.
This store always has the cutest, most colorful window displays!
This photo was taken right before Megan and I discussed our love of Beyonce. She showed me her Beyonce "Single Ladies" dance and was spotted by a slightly sketchy guy at a bar nearby. We quickly made our way to another location after that ;)
I love everything about this photo... the laugh, the colors, the un-posed movement of her hands...
When we realized we were quickly losing our light downtown, we made our way to the campus of UNCG where Megan had found a tire swing under a magnolia tree. The branches hung all the way to the ground and made a sort of secret place right in the middle of campus. Gorgeous!
(For the other photographers reading this; there was actually very little light underneath the tree and I had to push my camera to the limits to get this shot. ISO 1600 on a 5D with a 50mm 1.2 lens at 1/30th of a second, handheld)
The sun was totally gone by the time we finished the session, I've got to get used to the changing seasons! Megan, thanks for being wonderful :) Have a fantastic senior year!
