Throw back alert! Like waaaay back. This was one of my very first sessions! This technically was my very first Senior Portrait session, actually.
I decided not to share all of them, as my quality has improved GREATLY since this shoot. Big thank you to Taylor and her family for putting up with my trials and errors back in the day as I worked out how to properly do a senior portrait session.
Taylor is a full-blown country girl from Wisconsin, so naturally, her senior portraits took place on a horse ranch and at a dairy farm, as well as on the edge of a corn field.
We started the photo shoot on a neighboring horse ranch, but I decided to not share those pictures.
After the horse ranch, we went over to the dairy farm, where Taylor worked through high school. It was her grandfather's farm (might still be, I don't know where her family is at currently), and Taylor showed dairy cows in 4H at the county fair. She wanted one of her senior portraits to be with one of her cows.
We did several different poses within the barn with the other cows, but it was a bit distracting for the bovine. We had to put a lead on her and get her to go outside, where we got this sweet picture of Taylor with her cow touching foreheads. This is a common pose for clients to do with horses, so we decided to play it up and mimic it with her cow!
We ended the shoot back at her mom and step-dad's house, where she changed outfits. She emerged in this light purple dress with cowgirl boots on, and I tucked her into the corn for the last group of shots in her senior portrait session.
Thank you, Taylor, for being one of my very first clients!
