This session is dear to my heart because Claire is one of my beloved 2018 spokesmodels. When we were younger, Claire and I swam for the same summer team, so we knew each other long before my photography days. For her senior shoot, we ventured to the beautiful Shenandoah mountains, found a hike, and photographed our way through the evening. I’ve done a few sessions in the Shenandoah mountains, but have never hiked a trail during a shoot like Claire and I did. The views at the end were so worth it and I definitely want to shoot in these mountains after hiking again.
