This summer has got to be one of the hotter summers in recent years. I can’t remember seeing so many days that were just over 100 degrees WITHOUT the heat index! And this casual senior portrait session was no exception to the hot weather…. 95 degrees at 6pm, with a heat index of over 100, but that didn’t stop us having a GORGEOUS session with Sophie. With most clients, it normally takes several minutes for them to get comfortable and warmed up in front of our cameras, but not this beautiful up and coming graduate. Sophie was a natural in front of our cameras, and photographing at the James River Country Club made her senior portrait session that much more amazing.
This was our first time photographing at the James River Country Club, and whenever we are in a new location, we get there early so we can scope out those perfect spots of light… and we couldn’t stop finding these gorgeous locations. The JRCC backs up to the James River, giving us a spectacular backdrop as the sun fell, and the temperature finally cooled off. Sophie, we wish you an amazing senior year, and we wish you all the best as you pursue your dreams!
