I must say, Bridget had some great ideas for her senior session.
Which is why I was super sad when they didn’t work out! Apparently, trying to represent Bridget’s future goals as a marine biologist is a fairly hard thing to do when you are surrounded by desert, desert, and more desert on all sides!
So even though we had to scrap the ocean life ideas, I have to say I’m not all that sad about it because I wouldn’t trade what we ended up getting for all the sea turtle photos in the world!
Bridget ended up choosing a dead pecan tree grove as the place for her session. Which sounds like a weird place for senior photos, until you see what can be done with it!
Luckily, her mom has an artistic eye as well so she was able to see the potential of the place rather than think her daughter was insane when she told her where she wanted to go!
I was psyched when I heard we were going to the grove, and that excitement level was kicked up by like 10 points when I saw the bright red dress Bridget was wearing when we pulled up!
So much so that we even asked her to put it back on at the end of the session to do the part that all of us had been looking forward to the whole time… the creepy part!
I was so happy when Bridget said she really liked the creepy aspect of the old dried up tree branches.
Sounds like fun experimenting time to me! And that it was! Once the sun went down we brought out the flashes and got our creep on!
And the results were AWESOME!
Thanks so much to Bridget and her mom, who saw the beautiful potential behind something most people would believe to be ugly, and who were willing to trust our artistic vision enough to be able to do something with the potential they were handing us.
I hope you guys love the results of your adventurous spirit as much as we do!
