Golden Hour Senior Session – Morgan

I’m excited to share Morgan’s golden hour senior session. Our session was originally postponed because of the rain, but the day we rescheduled it to was perfect. The weather was mild and we did it late enough in the day that the sun was glowing through the trees. We had our session at the Doyle Reservation Area in Leominster, MA. I’ve been fortunate enough to do a fair amount of my sessions there this year. It’s one of my favorite places to take people. It’s overgrown and beautiful. We decided to take a different route, just to mix it up.


Morgan is so easy going. She took direction like a champ and was up for any idea I threw at her. Her natural smile was contagious and her “serious face” was fierce. It was a lot of fun.

We made sure to come in August because Morgan wanted some flowers in her photos. I knew the yellow flowers came out this time of year and they looked so pretty behind her. I’m not sure if they’re technically flowers, but I think they’re pretty.

We walked down grassy pathways and the sun came shining through the trees. This place is a dream as it is, but this time of day is just magic.

This spot on my bridge is one of my favorite places in the whole park. It has a real “secret garden” vibe to the whole place. I could go on and on about the location, but look how awesome she looks sitting on it. That’s a canvas photo, right there!

As we were walking out, the sun was low and came through the trees. I made her sit on a bench nearby and captured her one final time. These are some of my favorites from the entire session. Doesn’t she just glow?
