Sometimes you just need a little pick me up. Something to make you feel special, beautiful, and brave. I love doing sessions like this. A girl who is feeling confident and like she can take on the world! We embraced her outer beauty, but it was her inner strength that really pulled through in these photos. The lighting was gorgeous, it was the ‘golden hour.’
The golden hour is simply the first hour of light after sunrise, and the last hour of light before sunset. These were taken around that time of day. It is also known as the magic hour. Why? Because that is when the sun is lower in the sky and it casts a beautiful soft and diffused glow. Those sharp shadows that you get when the sun is overhead, don’t exist in the magic hour. It also provides a warm golden glow which I usually add in processing so it also cuts down on editing time.
