Abbey is a student at The Ohio State University studying Agriculture Communications with plans to be a future farm owner! How cool is that? She is currently Ohio Miss Agriculture and National Miss Agriculture USA Runner-Up and needed a headshot for the upcoming competition season. The day she scheduled her headshot it was cold and snowy. Burr! We started off inside the barn (and wow the lighting is fantastic in there!) and then moved to take some more headshots outside the painted red barn, which was equally as pretty. I can't decide which backdrop I like best. Good thing I don't have to make that decision:)
Of course, after we went outside I couldn't help but want to extend the session and take some snow pics. Fortunately, Abbey was game and happily braved the elements for me and my camera. During part of the shoot flakes of snow came slowly drifting down. I loved her red hair against the stark white--so striking! And her coat ended up being perfect and OH MY GOSH the popped up fur hood framing her face made me forgot how cold it was. I just wanted to keep on snapping away. This past summer her sister did a senior session at the same location and some of my favorites were of her on an overturned rowboat. Well, that overtuned boat was still there and I HAD to have Abbey give it a go, too. It was damp and freezing this time, but you wouldn't know it by looking at Abbey. She smiled and posed as if she were Elsa from Frozen singing "the cold never bothered me anyway"--ha. Though with her red hair she looks a lot more like Anna:) I'm sure she was actually quite cold, but you can't tell from looking at the photos!
This was the first time I did a photo shoot in the snow and it was so much fun. Thanks, Abbey for being such a good sport!
