Portraits - Jennifer
Happy May! I've been looking forward to taking portraits in one of the local gardens for a long time, and I was finally able to arrange a time for my friend Jennifer to meet me at Deepwood Estate for a portrait session. While every picture I take--paid or unpaid--is practice, this was especially a time for me to practice a lot of things I've been mentally adding to my "To Try" list, though I still forgot a ton of stuff (probably to Jennifer's relief). Anyway, keep the experimental spirit in mind when you look these over (i.e. don't hate). Also, I'm going to mix these all up. Order is boring.
This is one of my favorites--I loved the porch setting.
In case you're curious about her shoes.
Beauty! Don't you love her dress? I asked her to bring it since I had only seen it in pictures.
Yes, I have her coming through lots of gates and doorways. :) Hey, I had to take advantage of everything the garden had to offer!
That photo on the left is sort of an outtake, but it shows some of her personality, so I like it. :D
Love this one!
