One of my oldest friends and I went driving around the hills on Tuesday to see what kind of autumn magic we could find. Lisa is graduating from UAF, so we went on a little adventure to capture her playful spirit in her senior portraits. We started shooting after finding an empty road cozied up by the changing birch and spruce.
Of course we forgot to pack the ever-most-important item of modern portraiture- a wide brim hat. We decided that heck yea it was worth it to drive all the way back down the ridge through like 20 stop lights (yes I'm being dramatic) all the way back to Lisa's apartment just to scoop up a measly little hat. I think you will agree when you look at the pictures that it was sooo worth it.
Now of course this means while we were back at the apartment we also had to grab another arm load of outfits because why not, we were at the mercy of a spectacular closet just beckoning us to borrow her oversized denim jacket and black skinny jeans.
Finally, after some outfit adjusting, we were back at it.
When Lisa and I were first thinking of where to go to shoot, I had all these crazy ideas of going up the highway to get a good location. Turns out, literally everywhere is breath-taking. You so do not need to go drive up the highway for 45 minutes. We found the most jaw-dropping fall scenery just a few minutes up a hill.
