Eastern North Carolina Photographer {Teens: April}

April’s mom approached me a couple months ago about doing this session for her lovely daughter and I couldn’t say yes fast enough!  I met April a little over a year ago and was immediately smitten by her crystal blue eyes and fantastic curly hair.  I have a sweet spot for light eyes and dark hair, and I just though April was utterly gorgeous.  When her mom told me that April was a total country girl, and then suggested using a red barn for a backdrop, I knew that we were going to have a great time and get some super fun images out of it.  Sure enough, we did this session in just about 20 minutes.  April is so photogenic and a natural model.  It sure was a nice departure from all the family and infant sessions i’ve been doing lately.  There is something about having a beautiful location, more than capable model, and soft evening light that strikes a chord with me every time.

Thank you so much April for being such a great subject to shoot and for you beautiful heart that shines through.  This girl loves life and loves Jesus and it’s so apparent that she has a heart full of joy from the second you meet her!
