Springtime in Atlanta is always a great time of year with the variety of flowering plants, and I can’t imagine anywhere else being quite as pretty when they are all in bloom. As I like to incorporate scenery into my portraits I wanted to take advantage of all of the outdoor beauty with a portrait photo session.

This young model was wonderful to work with, looks beautiful, and was even agreeable with getting up early for the morning shoot. While I usually shy away from special effects, I added antiquing which seemed appropriate for this first shot. The second shot was a concept photograph of which we took advantage of our surroundings and streaming light.

The third was the model purely her being herself.  I usually give models minimal instruction if the they are relaxed and natural, which she was.

The fourth picture we decided to try after we thought we had finished for the day, using a dogwood tree’s blossoms of which Atlanta is famous.
