Most of the time seniors come to us with a sense of what they want — they want fields or water or brick or flowers — but every now and then they come to us with specific ideas. For Brynn, that specific idea was this big bending willow tree in the back of her family’s home. It wasn’t so much a location as it was an object that connected her to childhood. What Brynn didn’t know, is that I’ve also always been obsessed with willows — their droopy leaves that form canopies and filter in warm, ambient light. There is just something so romantic about their beauty which was perfectly matched with Brynn’s lace dress and soft curls.
After capturing some favorites at the willow tree, we headed farther north from Fish Creek into Ephraim for a stop at Anderson Dock, a Door County icon. The clouds covered most of our sunset, but we got a light breeze that blew Brynn’s hair beautifully, and the heavy blue of the sky made the oranges that peeked out all more dramatic. Such a fun and beautiful session!
