EVA JANE | FVHS

CLASS OF 2019 | RALEIGH, NC

 

Spring is here and it is full stop,  my absolute favorite weather shoot in! I have a ton of stop-you-in-your-tracks-drop-dead-gorgeous images coming your way. Today's blog post features Eva, she is one of my 2019 Senior reps and I am SO so SO happy to have her on my team. One of the many things I admire about Eva is her thoughtful personality and creative ideas. I had so much fun planning her session together, choosing each location that truly represented her personality. Eva has been dancing since she was four years old and we wanted to incorporate that into her session. We started off her shoot at the old Father and Son Antique building in Raleigh. This shop has recently moved and so the building is standing empty, full of old character and really great lighting! From there we drove to Pullen Park, a quick stop at the Boylan Bridge which features the amazing backdrop of downtown Raleigh. We also did a few shots at the JC Raulston Arboretum's polka dot tree and then we made our way to an amazing field to shoot some colorful, smoke-filled fairytale images. Finally we headed back to Eva's hometown of Fuquay Varina to do some final shots. These images tell such a great story and I am so happy to have the opportunity to work with this sweet High School Senior and caprture her Senior Portraits.
