Rae and I met quite a few years ago in a dance class, then she moved to Michigan, where I photographed her last year on the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes! This year we met up in Virginia, it my Shenandoah National Park, and working with Rae always turns into magic! We started in the forest, because I remembered how much Rae loved the woods in the Michigan sand dunes. Then we made our way to the sunny mountains.
Rae wore an outfit that I have stocked away in my client closet, so if you aren't sure what to wear, this dress will fit nearly anyone, can be tied in anyway, or used as a skirt!
Epic portraits like this, catching the wind on the top of the mountain, running barefoot in the woods, and just feeling wild and free are my absolute favorite.
