Oh, where do we begin? Sarah, a beautiful human being inside and out, is always so great to work with. We met her when Krista worked part time at the same coffee shop as Sarah. Art in its own form, we immediately connected over this shared interest in art and learned that we are both creative and artistic in our own ways. Sarah, a talented flutist and student at the Shenandoah University Music Conservatory emulates talent and creativity in a way that not many do. Paired with a spunky personality and strong sense of camaraderie, spending time with her was immediately seen as a treat! Taking on portrait photography together for the second time, our good friend Mick Perry lent us his beautiful property where we were free to let our creativity run wild! 

I saw a dress on Pinterest a couple of years ago made completely out of tulle. Something about it captivated me. I loved the motion the layers gave the dress, I loved the different shades the tulle gave off, I loved how the model looked in the dress. I knew I had to try this on my own! My first attempt at making a dress, I have to say I am happy with the results! Sarah stuns in the dress and made wearing all of those layers look easy!

After we soaked up the sun in the front yard, we moved along to the back to check out all of the farming equipment that was outside. Something about the contrast of the whole thing just seemed so interesting! Plus, we wanted a more discreet spot to begin lighting off our colorful smoke bombs!

After the sun really started to sink in the sky, we ventured into the barn to experiment. The wood, the texture, the colors, it all worked! Sarah is the best sport!

Living in Virginia, we are blessed to see the most beautiful skies. Sunset may have hidden behind the clouds on this beautiful April afternoon, but the colors still gave us a gorgeous backdrop!
