Now that school has started, emotionally it feels like fall, even if the weather is screaming “SUMMER!” Rachel Harrod sent in this engagement session for a little autumn inspiration!
From Rachel: “Outdoor Country Engagement session with a puppy is my dream, and it was for my SISTER and future brother in-law. I was super excited that my sister trusted me with her fall engagement photos. When I asked my sister what she wanted, and I said old barn her response was “we aren’t barn people,” so a country cornfield (that happens to be Chris’s grandmothers) it was, and a few barn photos to appease me. I think these turned out just how she thought and every photograph brings out their personality to a ‘T.’ No there weren’t fall leaves or green grass, and yes it was FREEZING cold and windy, but we made it work. With the help of my husband we had coats on and off in a flash, the sun worked perfectly through the clouds with its glowy wintery light, and even though freezing I think it made the photos more cuddly and fun. Oh and I can’t forget to mention Obidiah Watson on his best most perfect behavior thanks to a walk with his cousins and playtime before the photos. He donned the best bow tie in the land and look just dapper for his photo session. Elizabeth and Chris I can not wait to stand next to you on your wedding day. It is going to be the most perfect. Love you!”
Having him at our engagement session was lots of fun. He looked so dapper in his bowtie and was so attentive. . . especially when our photographer, Rachel, bribed him with a treat.”
