Orchards aren’t just for picking apples. They also happen to make beautiful settings for portraits. Nicholle thought Apple Hill Farm on the north edge of Concord would make an ideal choice for her senior portrait session because of its scenery.
The weather turned out perfect for a mid-September Saturday (it’s always nice when Mother Nature cooperates). The sun-drenched fields made a wonderful backdrop for the various settings we used. I remembered there was a rope swing on a grand old oak tree, so we started there. Next to the oak, a grassy area stretched to the orchard offering a different look just a few steps away.
We ended the shoot on a gravel road that wound down the hill. For these shots, I had to put the camera (and therefore my head) down on the gravel to get the angle I wanted. The effort was worth it, though. Of course, we couldn’t leave an apple orchard without getting a fun shot of eating an apple.
Nicholle’s natural beauty made my job relatively easy and her, her mom, and sister were all a pleasure to work with. When she finishes high school, Nicholle plans on pursuing a degree in pediatric nursing. I wish her all the best in her final year of high school and where he journey leads her from here.
