At the beginning of our senior season, it’s always a special, fun time of year when we get a chance to explore different locations, test new equipment, and experiment with unique lighting techniques and shooting styles through our stylized senior shoots! With that being said, we had the absolute pleasure of kicking off our season with Mallory, an old soul with a beauty that shines both from within as well as the out. So it made sense to put this Mama’s and Papa’s, vintage loving girl in a setting that is eclectic and full of old, downtown charm! Though we had some preplanned areas in mind, I so love a spontaneous stroll and shoot method, which seemed to work perfectly on the old, historic streets of Bellefonte, PA. We had a few hiccups with the unexpected cold wind since PA weather is so annoyingly unpredictable. But regardless of nature’s untimely challenge, we came away with images that we truly LOVE and an experience that will remain a cherished memory and reminder each time we walk the streets of Bellefonte.
Does this sound like the kind of photoshoot you’d like to try or be a part of? See the photos below and decide for yourself!
