While vacationing in the small and beautiful country of Macedonia in Eastern Europe (where I served as a Peace Corps volunteer for 3 years), my good friend asked me if I would take some photos of her and her daughter. I was so grateful she asked me, as I had spent the first two weeks of our trip staring at the amazing scenery just wishing for someone to photograph.
These types of photo sessions are not really common in Macedonia, but my friend was familiar with my work, and she was up for anything. On the day of the shoot, I convinced my husband to drive us all to a beautiful location, where the light wouldn't be blocked by the mountains surrounding the valley town he grew up in. Without batting an eye, he said, "Don't worry about it, I have a place."
We climbed up a dirt road to the top of the hill, surrounded by tall grass and vineyards, as the sun slowly began to set. The location was incredible. My friend and her daughter played in the tall grass, explored, ran, and cuddled. She had also invited her best friend, her sister, to join us, and I just captured the sweet moments as they happened.
This session really is a testament to why sunset sessions are just my favorite, the gorgeous light was truly magical.
