Dakota / Oak Harbor Senior {Port Clinton, Ohio Rustic Senior Portrait Session}

June 13, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Let me introduce to you Dakota...a 2016 graduating senior of Oak Harbor High School!  This girl is stunning with amazing style!  She looks (and reminds me) so much of her Mom who I have known for a good number of years (hello small town!).  Dakota's session took place on a gorgeous fall evening and I was delighted that her best friend tagged along during her session.  Bringing a friend to your session is great for a number of reasons...they help with your hair, make you laugh, and truly help me to bring out the very best in YOU!  

Dakota and her Mom opted for the majority her session to take place at a fellow family member's home and surrounding land.  I love shooting at locations personal and special to my graduating seniors!  We started Dakota's session alongside the house that featured this amazing wood exterior with tons of texture.  The tones in the wood complimented her long maroon sweater perfectly.  I love the sparkle in her eyes and various looks she gave me in a matter of a few minutes!

After a quick change into jeans and a plaid shirt we shot around a pile of logs.  As the sun continued to go down the light only got warmer and highlighted Dakota's dark hair.   Dakota 1Dakota 1 Dakota 15Dakota 15 Dakota 16Dakota 16 Dakota 17Dakota 17 Dakota 18 B&WDakota 18 B&W

Before heading to our second location we made beautiful use of the pond located on the property.  This girl has such natural beauty!

Dakota...a huge thank you to you and your mom for choosing me for your Senior portraits.  It was an absolute joy spending an evening with you! Congratulations on your graduation and I wish you the very best in your future endeavors.  I know you will continue to shine!
