Portrait Park Beginnings….{Northern Virginia Photographer}

Let’s just say I don’t know how to turn down a bargain…and when I see something I’ve been shopping for I can usually get it in my shopping cart without even stopping the cart, folks.  Well….this didn’t fit in the cart, but it was sort of just like that when I saw it!

While driving down the road last weekend, my husband actually spotted this old truck sitting on the side of the road…with a For Sale sign on it.  We were on our way somewhere, unable to stop and I just couldn’t get the truck off my mind.  So on the way home, in the cold, and the fading sun, we found our way back to the truck on the hill.  We climbed a fence to get a good look at the phone number to call and the price wanted.  We snapped a few phone pictures (these are from the camera phone folks) and decided to call and inquire.

Lo and behold, the owner was more than reasonable and the truck was mine!  Then to get it to Round Hill… finding a tow truck driver with a wenched flat bed (truck turns over, but doesn’t really drive….) wasn’t the challenge – finding one to come out on a cold football Sunday in January was!  Finally found one, worked the schedule, and bought me a truck!

From Haymarket to Round Hill – the trip was nerve wrecking – imagine this tumbling off the back of a flat bed??? But the 1954 Chevy 6400 has now come to rest out it’s days in my front field…what will be the cornerstone piece of the new…wait for it….

Patty Schuchman Photography Portrait Park

Yup, this year the goal is to build outdoor set areas that give me and YOU the option to have a combined session right here.  A studio session AND outdoor session in a beautiful environment – with fun, unique settings that will give you looks you want.  I’ll still go to other locations, but for the busy seniors and families that want to drag themselves out only once – this is going to be the BEST OPTION.

And unique, folks.  I hope to offer the largest high school and family senior inspired selection of studio and portrait park props, drops and setups in all of Northern Virginia.  So keep watching as I find treasures and add them…build settings and get this crazy idea working.  This will be some ride!

  1. Love the truck and totally jealous!! Can’t wait to see what you do with it in your sessions.
