While Georgia was visiting from Massachusetts, we thought we’d take advantage of the time, and work on some personal projects. I normally schedule sessions around that lovely golden sunset time, but had been wanting to try a sunrise session. One thing I love about fall mornings, is that enchanting fog that rolls in just before sunrise at the early parts of autumn here in Northwest Indiana. Georgia wore a handmade dress that my mamaw made my mom when she was a teen. We wanted a more serious/ mysterious feel to the shoot, which was rather difficult because we both tend to be ridiculous at times. We awoke long before sunrise to do hair and make up, and make it out to a marsh in North Judson. The fog was so thick over the marsh we could barely see the landscape. I love how milky the air was just before the sun rose. I think these images fit the time of year perfectly…
I have another special fall blog post coming up of this girl. Here are some images that I had to share, but thought needed a separate post. Georgia meet little hen, little hen meet Georgia.
I love when fall first begins and the trees are tinged with hints of color. This was just the scene of a recent engagement session at Potato Creek State Park. Heather and Mike met us near the beach for a quick game of scrabble before we headed out to do some exploring in the park. I was anxious to visit those glorious fields full of goldenrod. I made a quick bouquet the day before of some things around the house. Rosemary and lemon basil were the perfect addition to a plentiful grouping of goldenrod. Heather brought some brilliant sunflowers that just perfected the arrangment. I’m a fan of flowers. Besides your wedding day, when else do you get to hold an armful of flowers?! Heather and Mike complement one another perfectly. They’re both gentle, easy going people, and time sped by so quickly that we extended our two hour session while chasing that wonderful sunset glow. No one seemed to mind… And once again I’ve fallen in love with photographing engaged couples. Here are some of my favorites!
It wasn’t really a holiday, but Georgia came for a visit, so we had to do some testing. I love being able to work on personal projects and Georgia is always the perfect model for them. I cleared time in my schedule, for “Georgia time”, which of course included a few visits to Temple for their amazing mochas, a trip to Chicago, eating spaghetti squash, and apple picking at Garwood Orchard. It was great having some fun personal time, since the summer has been so busy with work. We also managed to shoot some segments for my upcoming promo video. Here’s a teaser image of one of the sessions at a marsh in North Judson. This one was taken early in the morning just as the fog lifted. She’s wearing a handmade vintage dress of my mothers. My Mamaw Jordan made this and I’m so glad mom kept it.
