Recently I had the opportunity to shoot portraits for a local writer. She needed headshots for her website, so we headed to one of her favorite locations, the National Arboretum. She was great to work with and certainly made my job a lot easier with her sense of humor and beautiful smile.
Here are a few of the shots we came away with.
Our second location was a bit unintentional. Apparently the Arboretum has restrictions on shooting on the grounds. So, about the time we finished the first part of the shoot we were asked to stop taking photos. We improvised by going down the street to a local cemetery. It might sound odd, but it was actually a great place for an outdoor shoot. Beautiful blue skies, green hills, and large trees made for an ideal backdrop.
