last Saturday morning I set out in my SUV with 3 friends to explore along the Catawba River in South Carolina.  Our goal was to try and find some places to use for my River Women series & to check out Windy Hill Orchard’s CiderFest.  Unfortunately due to the crazy storms the night before we couldn’t actually shoot in the river (moving too fast to be safe) but we did get to explore different parks and nature preserves!  The rain managed to hold off until we got to the CiderFest when the bottom dropped out.  Luckily by then we were a few cider samples deep and didn’t mind so much!  Very thankful that Matt of Windy Hill Cider let us close down the festival while waiting for the rain to stop (it didn’t!).   We wandered the Catawba Indian Reservation and watched kayakers go swiftly down the river and found many places completely washed out from the torrential rains.

 

Then Sunday I set out with Elizabeth of EmpowerMUSE west of Charlotte to explore different areas to photograph the River Women Series.   We were driving down a random rural country road when Elizabeth shouts “I think I just saw a plane in the woods!”.  I totally didn’t believe her and tried to tell her it was probably an airstream.  Needless to say I turned the car around and sure enough, there was a plane, or part of one in the woods.  There was even a nice little sign pointing us to a website for more details about the plane, a decommissioned military Locheed Continental.  It had flown it’s last mission in the early 80s.  Now some guy owned what was left of it (part of it burnt in a fire in a SC Museum) and kept it on his property in rural NC.    We continued our wandering and discovered The Laboratory Mill in Lincolnton and a rail trail next to it.  So neat!  You can walk way into the river before the dam for the mill.  I can’t wait to start shooting the River Women Series!  We found some amazing and interesting locations that will all lend themselves to very different portraits.

It’s warm enough to start the River Women portraits again!  My River Women Series are fine art portraits in bodies of water within 1 hour of Charlotte.  I’ve decided to do it a little differently this time.  We will be offering the sessions in 2 ways, a shorter session and a longer session.  A portion of each session will be donated to empowerMUSE.  Both sessions will include a 7×10 fine art print and a digital copy of the print.  Additional prints and digital images can be purchased separately.   You can make the session whatever you want;  Pre-Raphaelite, boho, moody fine art, boudoir, etc.  I will walk you through planning your session, picking out your wardrobe and the location.   You can stand on the edge of the water, go into the water or fully immerse yourself, it’s totally up to you.  Your session can be as simple or as creative as you’d like.  These are very limited in availability so book now!
