Awesome Dawson


We had an unexpected surprise when shooting Awesome Dawson’s senior portraits on the parkway. We stopped at the Table Rock overlook close to Mitchell County. Our plan was to cross the road and walk up the steep hill on the other side to be able to shoot the mountains in the background. I planned on hopping the fence to have it in the foreground. The hill was steep so we had to walk down the road a bit before starting to climb the hill on a gentler slope. When we got to our spot, two horses had walked over to the fence. We initially thought it was just an empty field.

One horse particularly liked posing for portraits and stood beside Dawson for a while leading to some great and unexpected shots.
