{Cabin in the Woods} Sheridan Wyoming Senior Photography

I have an affinity for mother/daughter duos, perhaps because I have my own baby girl and I also have a mother who happens to be my best friend.  It’s the best kind of gift and a relationship that stands the test of time no matter what.  And from an outsiders perspective, it’s always inspiring to see teenagers who remain close to their mom’s through that teenage fog.  And if you’re a woman, we all know “the fog”.  =)  I was invited to do a senior shoot at this family’s cabin in the woods, about a 40-minute drive from our own cabin in the woods.  And I arrived to the most quiet, secluded, quaint little cabin tucked away in the mountainside, where just she and her mom had been enjoying their weekend.  They’d been riding four-wheelers most of the day and hanging out, and I just kept thinking to myself, “THIS is exactly what I want to be doing with my own daughter someday…”

The weather was a bit ominous, cloudy and even rained for the first part of the shoot, but I was determined to get this gorgeous girl in front of my lens.  We ventured out into the wide-open meadow where the light was a little brighter and it ended up becoming a perfect evening, with a gorgeous senior who obviously has her priorities in all the right places.  Family first.  And I felt an affinity for her…and I think my camera felt that same affinity.  =)can you possibly get anymore beautiful than this??:Thank you so much to these two ladies for inviting me up and allowing my little family of four to share in your ever-so-quaint and cozy cabin in the woods.  I hope you love these as much as I do!!

    Beautiful seems like such a small ineffective word for such perfection in God’s work! They are all amazing! Such beauty…..

    What can I say…Alissa, your work is beautiful…you are quite the artist in your field! God’s backdrop is awesome! And I’m just a bit prejudice about the model. You have captured her beautiful eyes and drawn me in. Again you’ve done a beautiful job. Thank you for coming to my favorite place to be!
