Don't you just love her name ? Ireland. It just sounds fabulous. And it completely fits this St. Joe Senior - she is totally fabulous.
Ireland's session was held in her family's beautiful country home. It is so farmhouse chic, I expected to see Joanna Gaines pop out of one of the rooms! This place was a photographer's dream - wide beautiful porches, hay bales, trees with moss hanging, country road and paths, fences and so much more. We ran out of time before we ran out of locations! I was in heaven.
Except - critters. As I've told you before, I am unreasonably afraid of critters. Like silly afraid. I saw spiders, we had a bee that buzzed around us around all day and then there was the slithering tail of a snake that I saw. I acted kind of brave until I saw the snake, then I went into my ridiculous mode by screaming and scaring the heck out of Ireland. I'm so sorry Ireland!!
Ireland started her senior session in a stunning red gown with a high slit. She gave it a boho vibe by going barefoot with it, which I thought was the perfect matchup of both casual + glam. She then went to a more casual vibe but I believe that the true Ireland came out in her last outfit - she put on her fave denim jacket and she just seemed to be so relaxed and at home in that outfit. She really got playful with me!
Of course, it doesn't matter which outfit she is wearing, her eyes are what draw you into every photo. She has such beautiful, soulful eyes. I really enjoyed getting to know Ireland better. She is so elegant and kind, she tells me she just loves hanging out with her girlfriends, her handsome boyfriend and loves all things girly. Her dream is to own a boutique filled with girly things!! She also loves makeup. I asked Ireland "who did your makeup?" She sparkled and replied "I did!" Whaaat? I thought it was professionally done! She was flawless!
I want to give a heartfelt thank you to the Davis family for having me out to your beautiful property. You made me feel so at home and comfortable. We couldn't have picked a better location to capture Ireland's beauty!!
