Yesterday I had the opportunity to work with Maya. I had been wanting to collaborate with her for a while now, and we finally had some time.
I have known her and her family for a number of years now. And I’ve taken photos of them in the past, but it’s been a while.
I started scouting locations for this session a while back. I wanted to find some new cool places in Franklin, TN. that I’ve never shot at before. It’s always good to find new and fun spots to have your sessions at. I have a few regular places I go to, but for yesterday, I wanted to find new places.
Some of the places we ventured to yesterday will be added to my list of future session locations! And I’m sure I will find more down the line.
One of my favorite places we found was this cool old general store, Davis General Merchandise. About a month ago I drove around and found all these cool old general stores in the area. All were still up and running, except for this one, it had closed down a couple months prior to our visit. It wasn’t until later that I realized, this would be an awesome place for photos.
Another place I found was this white wall, with cool old windows and vines growing all around. It totally makes for an awesome backdrop!
And if you are familiar with my photography, I tend to enjoy shooting through things or holding things up to my lens….pieces of plastic, a piece of broken crystal, a prism, pieces of colored cellophane, etc. I love adding texture to photos this way, I love getting these unique looks shadows in some of my photos.
Maya, thank you again for hanging out with me and getting some amazing photos!! You’re awesome!!! Can’t wait to work together again in the future!!
