Senior Session in Atchison, KS

In Kansas, the late winter or early spring can be rather dull. The trees are bare and the grass is brown. I was asked to do this senior photoshoot in February, and I wondered how the photos would turn out since everything was brown and there seemed to be no life or color.

I knew about this rock wall draped with a blanket of vines and resorted to this as it had proved tried and true in past experiences. While the vines were crisp and crunchy with little to no color, their dullness only provided more contrast with the vibrancy of my subject.

Moral of the story is that even seemingly boring landscapes can prove to be incredible backdrops, and vines are always an excellent choice.
