We met this beautiful young girl on a crisp Fall day as we arrived to create her family's portrait. Her cream colored sweater and hat complimented the soft, warm colors of green, orange, red and gold in the distant backdrop of trees.
We quietly observed as she busily looked for the prettiest colored leaf and when she held it up to show us, this portrait was created. Using a 200mm lens creates gorgeous separation between the girl and the background which is completely out of focus. We love the painterly effect produced.
This portrait received high marks at the annual print competition of the Professional Photographers of North Carolina. It's one of our favorite fall portraits.
Location: Blowing Rock, Boone.
