This summer, Alexa asked me to travel to Greenbrier County, to a lovely home on the river that her family owns, for her senior pictures.  I am so glad that I did.  There is something magical about taking photos in a location that has history and special meaning to you. Here are just a few of our favorites...

Alexa knew she wanted photos taken in the river behind her home.  She showed me a photo from her childhood, taken on the same river rock that we would use for her senior pictures that day.  It touched my heart to see how excited Alexa was to surprise her mother with that photo. Sometimes, especially in moments like that, I feel quite overwhelmed with gratitude. 

We laughed throughout this shoot and it was such fun; especially while taking this next set of photos. We were just getting warmed up when a sweet little skunk decided to follow us.  We kept our distance but had to be pretty stealthy when it was time to leave!
