Another favorite from Eli's Senior Portrait photoshoot. I had walked the trails of Ashford County Park ahead of time, and spotted this bench, set against the wintery hillside, and marked it as a good spot for portraits. He thought so too. There were so many options here -- sitting, standing, leaning -- though under actual conditions, with the rain misting down around us and puddling on the bench, sitting and leaning weren't good choices! So we opted for this pose, which turned out quite well under the circumstances.
