Photo Session: Maria Landis & sisters

Ahhh, we were all set: it was going to be perfect.


Maria & I talked and talked this photo session out- places, props, outfits, angles, lighting, timing, the whole nine yards. We had it planned and set the day -Maria’s 18th Birthday.

And man, am I glad we did! It was amazing just how perfect it actually turned out -and SOOO much fun!

Maria, thanks for the wonderful session! Your enthusiasm and joyfulness is so inspiring -You’re a real trouper!!

(And so are you two, Dorinda & Josella -not many people would still be smiling squished in the back seat of my car with chairs, violins, clothes, and who-knows-what-else piled on top of them at 8:00 in the evening -and without having dinner yet! 😛 Yep, you girls were pretty great!               {Oh and even after all Maria’s reassurances, I’m still pretty sure we were almost “IN trouble” at the pecan grove! lol :/ 😛 🙂 } )


I’m slightly jealous of the fact that these cool photography locations(and these are only 3 of the many we could’ve gone to right around there -we ran out of time! ) are all within 10 minutes of their house! Yes, TEN minutes!


First off, we went to a pecan orchard.


-Or wait, is it a pecan grove? An orchard would be like fruit trees, right?


Whatever the case, I’ve dreamed of doing pictures in one for a long time. -As in, even before I owned a camera, whenever we would drive by one, I’d stare out the window thinking up the pictures I’d take there one day…

But then, actually being in a grove, with a cute, adventure-ready girl, a violin, and sunlight filtering through the trees, I felt like I couldn’t do it justice with a camera. I mean, really, she was playing the violin! Sorry to be dramatic, but it was absolutely beautiful!

And then we were able to get a few quick ones of Maria’s cute sisters 🙂

Next, we checked out this place, and almost didn’t stop -because of time. But when we saw this dock, we were like, “Just really quick!”

I’m pretty sure I could’ve stayed there all day. 🙂

The sun was quickly going down, so we piled everything back into the bug, and rushed over to the field by their house. Just in time to get a little bit of sun as it sank behind the trees.

I think some of these turned out to be my favorites.

Ok, this turned into a very long post! Sorry, I’m very excited about this session, if you can’t tell. 😛

It was quite possible my “favorite-est” session to date 🙂 -Wait, do I say that every time?!

Thanks again, girls! Let’s do it again -if I’ll promise to bring a snack next time?! 😉 🙂 😀
