Countryside Senior Portrait Session
I get so giddy every time I get to do a high school senior portrait session! These sessions are some of my favorite because senior year is such a special time to celebrate. Endings and new beginnings all rolled up into one. I love when seniors want to incorporate something into their session that shows their personality and/or something they love. Megan has been riding horses for nine years and she wanted to have her beloved horse, Rocky, and her pup, Molly, be part of her senior portrait experience. The result is a collection of portraits that are so Megan!
This sweet young lady loves to be out in a wide open space riding Rocky. Molly is their sidekick and roams the fields alongside them when Megan is out for a ride. Rocky has been in Megan’s life for five years, but this was their first portrait session together. To say I was excited is an understatement. I adore horses! They are so smart and majestic! Some of my all-time favorite photographs in my portfolio are from sessions that have involved horses, so I knew this was going to be another one of my favorite sessions.
When we pulled up to the field Megan wanted to shoot in, I was so excited to see the high grass. Although I was slightly worried about snakes, I knew that the high grass was going to give us such a magical look in the photos! We spent half our time in this one field before heading to a second private property location for outfit two. It’s not always necessary to have two locations for a portrait session, but in this case I love the variety that it gave to the collection of portraits. I hadn’t seen either of these locations prior to the shoot and they did not disappoint!
Megan is quite an accomplished young lady. She was recently one of 10 high school students included in Mobile Bay Magazine’s 2018 Wonder Kids feature! I loved her enthusiasm for riding and I have no doubt she applies that same dedication in the classroom. Megan said she’s not sure which college she’ll be attending next year, but I know that she will do great things wherever she goes!
Megan, thank you for such a fun session! I hope it was the perfect kick-off to your senior year!

I loved Rocky’s “smile” trick! He is one smart horse!
