Jessica Rice @ YMCA Outdoor Center – Belleville

Jessica and I went back and forth via email trying to decide on a location to do her senior pictures. In the end, she opted for the YMCA Outdoor Center in Belleville… and what a fantastic choice! This is a great example of what happens when the client picks their own location. Why? Well first and foremost, Jessica is a nature lover. In fact, she would like to become Park Ranger when she grows up. Also, the Outdoor Center has a ton of character which makes it a photographer’s dream. We walked around all morning and talked about her trip to Quebec City (go Canada, eh!), while stopping every so often to snap some pictures. Along the way, we encountered a little frog who Jessica affectionally named ‘Castro’, and a ton of spider webs too…*yuck*!

Thanks to Jessica (and Dave & Candice, aka the ‘rents) for letting me hang out with you that morning!
