Hawley, MN Country Styled Outdoor Photoshoot | Oliva Rasmussen

Olivia and I got together in June for a fun, country styled, outdoor photoshoot at a farm in the Hawley area.  It was amazing, one of those summer evenings where the sun was just right, the weather was simply beautiful and there was a light breeze.  Oh yeah...there were mosquitoes too, but I suppose its a Minnesota summer.

I had the privilege of photographing Olivia a year ago as a part of the Miss Hawley contestant photoshoot.  The pageant resulted in Olivia being crowned Miss Hawley 2014!  Olivia is a wonderful individual, she cares about her community and is fun to be around. 

The inspiration for this photoshoot started with the idea of getting some pictures with her guitar.  Lately, I am loving incorporating props and meaningful pieces of people's lives into their pictures.  Turns out we also had a vintage bike and a beautiful country location to work with too!  We were planning on this being a one hour photoshoot and well, we totally lost track of time and two hours later realized it was 9pm.
