This was one of the later season outdoor sessions that I did this fall. These were done after the first hard frost of the season. There was still plenty of beautiful color, but it was starting to look much more like late October. These girls were really great to work with and had a lovely relationship together. They came along with their mom to the ordering session and made immediate friends with my daughter and went off and had fun together while their mom and I made all the artistic decisions on their portrait artwork. She ended up getting a number of wall portraits that traveled to Ghana over Christmas. So now, along with my portraits that are in Ireland, I can say that I have artwork hanging around the world, at least on 3 different continents!
I did some of our new painting finish on these last two images. Its hard to see on the blog, but the painting gives the foliage a really beautiful texture.
