I had such a wonderful time capturing Wade’s senior portraits this past weekend in Fredericksburg, VA. The weather was absolutely perfect, & it was so nice to switch gears a bit from capturing my usual engagements and weddings. What a beautiful evening we had!
Just a few years ago I captured senior portraits for Wade’s older sister, Marissa. It was really awesome that Wade’s mother, Sheri, thought to ask me again! I was so flattered that she would think to contact me again to inquire about a portrait session for her son. When Sheri contacted me she mentioned Wade wanting a location that had more of a country feel, as that was more his style. I have only captured a few portrait sessions in Fredericksburg which were all located downtown, so I was clueless regarding where to begin scouting out locations. I reached out to some fellow photographers, and they all recommended Lick Run Farm. I’m always a little nervous shooting in new locations I’ve never been, only because I like to see the grounds first to make sure it offers enough variety. I decided to trust my sources, and when we arrived it couldn’t have been any more perfect! I knew this location was going to fit Wade’s style and personality perfectly.
Just before starting, I asked Wade if he was really “excited” to do this 😉 I always love to tease the guys because I know having their photograph taken is never their idea of “fun.” He then chuckled and replied with “Not really. But I’m doing it for my Mom”. With that being said Wade was a natural in front of the camera, & I even got him to laugh a couple of times! If he was miserable, he did an excellent job hiding it lol. Wade was such a great sport… we managed to find an old barn with a loft that we both agreed to climb up in for a few shots. What can I say, we were feeling ambitious lol. I had such a wonderful time reuniting with this family, as well as getting to know this handsome young man.
I wish Wade the best of luck as he joins the Marine Corps after graduation! Here are some of my favorites from Wade’s senior portrait session.
Thank you for stopping by!
