  town and country senior shoot    

 Senior shoots are always fun!  I get to be a little more crazy, daring and fun with my work.  We jumped around to sooo many different places with this shoot.  She was such a trooper… changing clothes on the fly, bouncing around from location to location in the sizziling summer heat!  And as you will see, it was worth it!  We started downtown and found some great spots.  This first shot is one of my favorites!

 So cute and fun!

http://www.andreashirey.com/blog/wp-content/images/hu_5.jpg

 Then we headed to the meadow for some more natural shots.  Love these…to me it’s what’s youth is all about–simplicity, beauty, naturalness and innocence.  So pretty.

Love how he’s holding on to dad’s strong hand.  Hard to imagine that one day his hands will be just as big!

http://www.andreashirey.com/blog/wp-content/images/dun_6.jpg

His dad had a few great ideas!  We used an old family hatbox as a prop…

http://www.andreashirey.com/blog/wp-content/images/dun_3.jpg

And this little guy’s late grandfather’s hat.  So cool!  I just love it when the people I work with come up with such fun ideas!

  fall is near… August 17, 2010   

Fall has to be my favorite time of year by far…I love everything about it!  It’s the time of year I fell in love with my hubby so I think that has something to do with it…BUT, I love it for a million other reasons too:  cooler weather, campfire wafting in the air, warm sweaters and UGGS!!!, the excitement of the new school year, and of course, the AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL, VIBRANT leaves that decorate the trees!!  So, it’s probably no surprise that it is also my absolute favorite time of year to shoot!  I love color and fun I get to have!  Here’s just a few of my fall shots from last year.  Can’t wait to see what I get to create this fall!  Stay tuned…

  and baby (bump) makes 4!! August 5, 2010   

 This was my third time working with this wonderful family!  And, as you can see they are growing from a family of 3 to 4!  They came to Charlottesville for me to capture some fun family shots before their new little one is born!  Unfortunately, it was the ONE day it decided to rain in the last month!  So…we did our best, but the weather did not cooperate!  However, we did get some really sweet shots that captures this family well in this fleeting stage of life!  Enjoy…
