Shanti is a Class of 2012 Senior at Durango High School. She came in for her senior portrait session after school one afternoon. It was a gorgeous day (I still can’t believe it snowed today – October 6 is way too early for snow)! We found some beautiful red vines and yellow leaves for Shanti’s portraits. We parked at the Smiley Building then used the walls of Hood Mortuary and the trees along the middle of the Third Avenue. We used doors and walls of Big Picture as well. It’s a really great place to shoot a session because there are so many great backgrounds! The tree with the yellow leaves we used on third had a bunch of what appeared to be pears laying on the ground underneath it. I can’t say I’ve ever seen a pear tree, so I’m not sure that this wasn’t one, but I was very surprised. Shanti had to work around the “pears” all over the ground when I asked her to lay in the leaves. She was great, up for anything, and incredibly beautiful! This was my shortest girl senior session in history. We only used on location and one outfit – I was impressed! Thanks for such a fun session and I hope you love these few of my faves!
