Arissa’s is another gorgeous summer session, full of beautiful warm light and lush greenery. Shot at the Toledo Botanical Garden, there was no shortage of colorful backdrops for us to work with. After her pro hair styling and makeup application at the studio, we headed north to begin the session. Right off the parking lot, there is a lovely paved path that leads to a gazebo and koi pond. Here, we captured this first series in a fun patterned romper.
After a quick change, we took advantage of a colorful tree for impact. Arissa’s best friend had joined us on the session, so of course we made a point of taking a few shots of them together!
As the sun sank further, the light was taking on that golden glow we photographers love so much!
This particular day was on the hot and humid end of the spectrum. Finding a little shade provided some welcome relief.
I particularly liked this spot and the imagery we captured here. The willow branches provided a beautiful natural frame for Arissa in this first shot.
A few more shots of the BFF’s was in order; love their cute matching shirts.
As the sun began to sink in earnest, it was the perfect time for a short movement series in the flower garden.
From there, we took advantage of the stream and adjacent areas, and them moved on to the inner garden. A beautiful end of our session together.
Many thanks to Arissa and her parents for choosing BLP to capture this exciting time in your lives. Working with you all was an incredible experience!
