I met Camille…when she was born. She’s my cousin! We have lots of memories together. We even went to New York City with her parents (also my cousins) about twelve years ago.

She is beautiful inside and out, and she is up for pretty much anything. During our chat a few weeks before we started shooting, we decided we wanted to focus on three categories: urban, nature, and tennis.

First, we started in downtown Bristol.

We got lots of unique shots starting at Blackbird Bakery (because why not?!) – and only had to walk just a few blocks to get a ton of variety. Gotta love downtowns!

Camille is used to having her photo taken because her mom also always has a camera on her. That made it REALLY easy for me (and for Camille) when I was super close to her face for this shot when we were playing with shadows.

For our nature-focused images, one Sunday afternoon, we went on an adventure to find some fall foliage and mountain views over near Roan Mountain. We drove nearly the entire way up the mountain to find that the peak was completely cloud-covered. We could barely even see to drive!

So, we found a spot to turn around, and we drove back down to the bottom of the mountain. We found the perfect spot for some fall foliage shots and we ended up with these gems:

And finally, for our tennis-focused images, we had some fun with a dusk-to-dark shoot, which provided some really cool challenges for me. We started with some shots as the sun went down.

Here we are playing with shadows again…this time, fence shadows.

And then, the sun went down…the court lights began to come on…and magic happened.

I was so proud to have gotten that shot, but we still played around once it got dark since we had a speedlight, softbox, and the overhead court lights. Of course, we had to get the typical tennis shot to end the session, even if it was so cold we could see our breath when we finished!

I am so proud to be related to Camille. I loved the creativity we were able to bring to her session together.
