The Fall Colors project was something that I had in mind for a while. Being from New England I knew that one of the most amazing things about living here is the fall season. All the colors that it brings. This made the Arnold Arboretum the perfect choice. The location is just outside of the city so it’s not as busy and I knew we wouldn’t be disturbed when taking photos.
Since this was one of my first projects I brought out a very good friend of mine. I’ve taken a few photos for her before and she was just excited about the photo shoot. It actually happened to be my birthday this day but I wanted to focus on taking my friend away from all the distractions in her life. She was going through a bit of a rough patch and I thought this would be the best way to make her feel better.
The post shoot results were amazing. I couldn’t believe how well the photos came out, as well as how amazing my friend looked. Seeing the results for my self warranted my decision on getting into photography. I was a bit nervous at first. I had a lot of anxiety around the whole project. I’m happy it turned out great.
