Girls Senior Portrait in Middleburg at reflecting pond.

Girls Senior Portrait of Foxcroft High School Student Erica sitting at a reflecting pond lined with stacked stonework and covered by a weeping willow tree at Boxwood winery in Middleburg, Virginia. Student is wearing dark denim jeans with brown Fry boots and a taupe colored long sleeved wrap blouse. Cloudy skies overhead act as a natural diffuser for the afternoon natural sunlight, with added fill flash. Boxwood winery started as a horse farm, one of the first ones in Middleburg. It is now a 16 acre winery on rolling green hills with a pond with a small rowboat, outbuildings and stonework such as shown in this photograph, as well as ironwork gates, and a beautiful red barn. Ornamental gardens, fruit and non fruit bearing trees, as well as a variety of cultivated shrubs decorate the property.  Middleburg is home to countless horse farms and is one of the wealthiest counties in Virginia. It is also home to The Salamander Resort owned by Sheila C. Johnson. Image taken by Arnel Gonce Photography in the fall with a Canon 5DMIII and a Canon 85mm f/1.2L lens. Image shot at ISO 320, f/4.5, at 1/250 of a second shutter speed. Image was post processed with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom and Alien Skin Exposures.
