I knew if there was one thing I wanted to do this past summer, it was photos at the County Fair. However, I see so many fair sessions in the photography world and really wanted mine to be a bit edgy; a bit different.
I met Olivia a few months ago at a photography meet up. I instantly fell in love with her style, her gorgeous red hair, and her sweet and easy to work with personality. I was so excited when she wanted to do a fair session with me!
We started a bit later than I had anticipated, and I have to say it was the best ‘delay’ ever! The one thing I wanted to incorporate more than anything was cotton candy…. and the sky cooperated better than I could have imagined! None of the sunsets here are enhanced for color. God’s painting was beyond beautiful!
Another super fun element was night photography. I shot wayyyyy into the dark, and my camera, along with my memory when it came to the right settings, didn’t fail me.
In fact, I’m SO glad we got to shoot in the evening, because it made the session all the more original. And can you say she rocked her sunglasses at night? Obsessed <3

It does my creative soul SO much good when a client or model comes to me with the most AMAZING wardrobes, hair, and makeup. It just makes the shoot so much better and so much more vivid. Olivia’s style speaks right to my heart and I pretty much love everything I’ve ever seen her in!
I flew RIGHT into busy season after these were taken, and can’t tell you how much I appreciate her patience too! Thank you so much to @livviedix (IG) Olivia for being the most gorgeous AND gracious model! Can’t wait to work on our next collaboration together.
