Somewhere in mid-September I fell waaaay behind on blogging our Ultimate Senior Portrait Sessions, which were a BLAST this year. We had more of these sessions than ever before, and more adventures than ever before.
Molly’s session was definitely high on our list of fun and adventure.
Molly’s mom was the mastermind behind planning her session. She wanted sunflowers, which were in bloom in MA…but also a little bit of an urban feel, and also some nature, and water, oh, and some beach.
We plotted out our trip: Newburyport, Plum Island, Colby Farm.
We met Molly and her mom in downtown Newburyport on one of those perfect weather days, sunny and just the right temperature. The storefronts were bursting with gorgeous window boxes in full bloom. Molly introduced herself with poise and confidence and showed us her wardrobe which was piled deep in the back of her mom’s car.
Not only is she a natural beauty, but she’s a girl who knows what she wants. Being a nature lover, she decided that shooting in downtown Newburyport didn’t really feel like her, so we headed over to the park to grab some shots where we were surrounded by nature, and then down by the waterfront. After a quick outfit and hair change, we hopped in our cars and met at Plum Island.
Time was flying by and we could feel the sun sinking lower with every passing moment. We needed to get to the sunflower farm before it was too late. We hopped in our cars like we were in the Amazing Race and set off towards our next destination.
The farm was magnificent. The sun was in the exact perfect position when we arrived. We walked quickly from our cars to the field as that warm golden light was covering the field and I knew it wouldn’t last long. Even though there were people EVERYWHERE, with each frame it was like Molly was the only one there.
As the sun set behind the trees, a residual burst of orange/pink sprung up from the sun’s setting glory and we soaked in every last bit of it.
What an amazing senior portrait session, and kickoff to a most unforgettable senior year.
