I’ve wanted to do an FPD on the James River for as long as I can imagine. The problem? Both accessibility and safety… the prettier spots along Pony Pasture and River Road can take effort to get to with small children in tow and the rapids pose dangers that I don’t worry about during a full sessions when we are careful and taking our time. When I visited Three Lakes Nature Center, something about the paths immediately reminded me of the paths along the James – dense forest with lots of evergreens opening up to water every now and so often.
These photos are from our shoot last year in 2016 – I visited again last weekend to take pics but I don’t want to blow any holiday card surprises by blogging those just yet – you’ll have to wait. I relish every opportunity to come back to the many beautiful locations Richmond has to offer, sorry I didn’t get these public sooner, more RVA beauty to come….
