Marisa - Portrait

I am sooooo excited to share these pictures! 

For this shoot, we got to spend an hour playing around in a huge park that had it all: water, a shady wood, open fields of green grass- and a shoulder-high hay field. (At least, so we think. I'm not a farm girl. It could have been some tall weed for all I know!)

The hayfield was our favorite though, and we stuck to it and the open fields.
Having never even been in a hayfield before, I found out some things:

1. Watch out for Ginormous spiders + webs.  (!!!!)
2.  Don't sit down on bent hay stalks. 
3. Shoot at 6:00p.m . . .  during Golden hour!

Ohhhhh yes.

Note: When your best friend has gorgeous, long, straight hair like this:

Hair flips are a must!

We had so much fun with these . . . that we did some more later on. ;)

Love these . . .

 Open field . . .

Then- yes, back to the hayfield.
We simply could not stay away from it!

My. Favorite. So. Gorgeous.

This picture pretty much sums up the evening . . .

God bless!



  1. these are *gorgeous*, all of them. ^_^ you did a fantastic job! i love the ones where the sunlight catches her eyelashes. She is adorable. :))

    1. Aren't they?!!! Thanks! =)
      Ah, yes I just loved the way the light lit up her eyes! She did a fantastic job of not squinting in the light too...! ;)

  2. So.... breathtaking! I love, love, love. LOVE the light! These are so inspiring, now I NEED to beg some of my friends to take photos of them. Hehehe :)

    1. I know! While I was clickin' away I could not stop remarking on the light, "These are going to be amazing Marisa!!!!!" It was hard to see and hot and itchy, but SO worth it. And yeah, we squeaked over 'em all after we were done.
      The light make can make SUCH a difference. =)
      Thanks Eva!

  3. Pretty girl, and pretty shots. :) Good job!

    1. Thanks Olivia! Oh, isn't she? Between her and the lovely light all I really had to do was press the shutter! (And stay away from spiders!)
