I've never done a shoot where I was invited to sit on the porch and have a cup of coffe first or where the grandmothers, grandfather, and daddy were with us moving tractors, moving bales of hay, wiping off bull poop (LOL!), driving Gators, watching clothes get hung on the line (those were the days!).... but it ALL happened last weekend when doing the shoot of the prettiest lil' chick, Hannah Saunders. Hannah will be graduating from Eastern Randolph this school year and plans to go into nursing at ECU. She asked if we could possibly do her portraits at her grandparents farm in Ramseur and I was sitting on G waiting on O! I was so excited as I drove through the gorgeous countryside and came up on their home with the most inviting and beautiful front porch - I would dare Southern Living to top it in any issue! They had me drink a cup of coffee on that big ol' porch, which I gladly did, and then we were off to the old fences, barns, hay, tractors, field of wildflowers, corn, soy beans (the tallest I've ever seen!) and the family was with us for a lot of the morning. I drove home feeling as if I'd known them all my whole life and I believe I've made some new friends. Hannah is a cutie pie, sweet, loved, loveable, and is going to do amazing things in her life. How can you not when you are surrounded by love like that! i hope you'll take a moment and view her gallery in the slideshow below. It can also be found at www.myspotlightphotography.com/hannah2013.
