My friend Soozie from Photography by Soozie was shooting mini sessions on our property when I grabbed this shot. Two things: I think Soozie is a fantastic photographer, and I loved when she decided to offer her mini-sessions at our property.

This image was taken on October 18th at 4:07pm. It was an unseasonable cold day, the skies were mostly cloudy and overcast.
Using a single focus point, I focused on her eyes with an aperture of f/2.8. Because there was only one person in the photo, I shot wide open with my favorite lens for the shallow depth of field.
Below is the original and edited versions, I decided to tone this image with a vintage film look as I wanted the content of the photo to match the processing. Color and light adjustments were accomplished in Lightroom.
