Blythe’s mom called me to schedule her daughter’s senior photos, and told me this session would be a bit “different.” You see, Blythe shows cattle, and has won many prizes in doing so, so they wanted some shots of her with her cows. I was immediately excited because I always love shooting on farms, and this sounded like a very interesting session. On the day we had scheduled for photos the sky was grey, it was cold, and the rain was looming. Nonetheless, we traveled to Crossville and poor Blythe braved the cold and misty rain that had started and we began to get some great shots. Brandon photographed with me, and as luck would have it, toward the end of the session, the clouds started to disperse and some beautiful color was coming out of the sky! If you know much about Lindsay Gross Photography, you know that Brandon is the master at dramatic skies. So there we were, tromping in a cow pasture with big rain boots (thanks to mom Debra) with cows and mosquitoes all around, and we’re loving it! Thank goodness we stuck out the cold and rain for this. We had already gotten some beautiful shots, but this sunset was a bonus! Below are some of our favorites from this shoot. Thanks Blythe and Debra for being so awesome, interesting, fun and patient. We hope you love these as much as we do!
This is what the sky looked like when we started shooting:
Cloudy days aren’t all bad. We actually like shooting in them because they produce soft and flattering light. (Like Blythe needed any help – gorgeous!)
I must tell you, these cows WANTED their photo taken. They lined up and posed. No kidding.
And then, the sun broke through and we got some great color in the sky…
These cows were in a separate pasture. They apparently wanted their photo taken too. They saw us coming with lights and cameras, and came right over.
