Blowing Rock Children Portraits

Blowing Rock Children Portraits

A Run Through the Woods

We've been creating portraits of this young boy since he was born. He is smart, fun and full of energy!

We met him and his mother on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Blowing Rock. The old logging road is part of Julian Price Park, a 4000+ acre recreation area for picnicking, camping, canoeing, hiking. 

If you hike out to the end of this road, there is a huge beaver dam. We like to walk out to see what kind of progress/mischief the beavers have been making. The dam is the biggest I've ever seen. It's also a bit annoying because the beavers have flooded a large segment of the trail!

This is a great example of an illustrative portrait where the portrait subject is interacting with their environment.
