Fall Photo Shoot With Kaija

Fall in Germany is beautiful!  The surrounding area where I live provided a splendid backdrop for my fall photo shoot with my friend, Kaija.  There are so many awesome abandoned buildings, ivy overgrown walls, colorful benches, and trees that it wasn't hard for me to capture some great backdrops for my photos.  Kaija also made things super easy by being so great in front of the camera with her flawless skin and those blue eyes!  One of my favorite backdrops is the red and orange door.  The day as usual was foggy and overcast, but this made for some great images I think.  Follow along for a typical fall day in Bavaria!  Sometimes I still can't believe I get to live here.

There were so many more images I could have chosen from.  This portrait shoot was part of a final project I have completed for Bonnie Rose's B. Lux course.  I'm so glad I participated, It's been a great time and Bonnie is just wonderful!  I will definitely be posting more portrait sessions in the future.  I'd love to see a winter, spring, and summer shoot.  Did I mention this is my first time attempting portraits?

And the Winner is...
