Early Mountain Vineyard, in Madison Virginia has to be one of my most favorite places to shoot near Charlottesville, Virginia. There are rolling hills, rows of vineyards, a barn surrounded by beautiful flower beds that have a riot of flowers blooming nine months out of the year that is perfect for photographing in. This senior is a ballerina, and planning on continuing her course of study in Utah. She is an accomplished ballerina, dancing every year for several years with the Richmond ballet at Christmas performing in the Nutcracker. The light at Early Mountain Vineyard sets just beyond a hill with a gorgeous tree, where beautiful backlit photographs can be planned. There is also a patio, and a retaining wall of stone with tall pampas grasses and a colorful array of flowers all competing for competition in the and around the patio and retaining wall. Portrait sessions at Early Mountain Vineyard are full of so much potential for good lighting and great photographs. There is also an indoor area for changing and applying makeup prior to photoshoots. Parents especially enjoy this location as they can sit on the back patio where the view is unrivaled and sip wine while they are waiting.
