Arabia Mountain // Lithonia, GA
I can't explain how excited I am to share this session with you guys! I've had the idea for this shoot in my head for months, so I finally brought it to life and WOW. It exceeded my expectations! I'm not going to sit here and pretend like I spent oodles of money styling this shoot. It was a dream of mine to do this, but I'm also a baller on a budget and I honestly wasn't sure how I would pull it off. My dear friend Laura was kind enough to model for me (who knew she was such a natural at modeling?!) and we blindly ordered the dress off of Amazon (yes, you read right. AMAZON), hoping that it would look at least semi-good. Turns out, ordering dresses from Amazon isn't always a bad idea! I still can't believe the dress looked THAT good! And the florals? Leftovers from a wedding I attended the night before! As far as choosing the location, I knew I wanted a moody look, so I decided on Arabia Mountain in Lithonia, GA. Having never been there myself, I trusted photos from Google and advice from other photographers, and it did NOT disappoint. As we got to the top of the mountain, the moodiest, most gorgeous clouds rolled in and I almost died from happiness! I'm still in awe at how well everything turned out and I seriously couldn't have asked for a better set up. Sometimes you've just gotta get out there and create something that brings your soul to life.
