Once Nathan and I graduated high school and were in college, he decided to buy a little 1994 Jeep Wrangler. We loved (and still love) getting out and playing in the Jeep. We were fortunate enough to find a club that offered more of that. The New River Valley Jeep Club has been so good to us over the past 4 years. We’ve done a lot of off-roading, camping and hanging out with some amazing friends! Now, the NRV Jeep Club is how I met E.J.(I’m pretty sure he was just starting high school when we joined the club). His parents are the presidents, organizers, all around good people… and in March they will be celebrating 10 years of the NRVJC.
We already had this shoot at Mountain Lake planned, but then a cold spell came through along with snow. Sophie, E.J.’s mom , wasn’t sure if we should continue with our plans or not but EJ was all for it. During the winter he is a ski and snowboard instructor at the Homestead Resort, so the snow doesn’t bother him. It was perfect actually that it ended up being a winter wonderland at Mountain Lake that day because he brought his snow gear and we shot some of him and his snowboard…Which was awesome.
This black and white is one of my FAVORITES!
