Photography Locations

How do we choose our photography locations?  It all starts with what is right for you.  Choosing a great location is one of the most important pieces of setting your family’s photo shoot. The backdrop you select will set the stage for the entire session and will be an essential piece of every shot, pose and, ultimately, the finished product. I recommend picking a spot that’s special to you, either a spot you love, somewhere you frequent or a place that best represents your family.

After you’ve narrowed down the list, it’s important to think about some key logistics: are there restrooms? Is the distance from the parking to the actual shoot location far? If so, pack comfy shoes for everyone! Will there be places to change outfits, retouch hair and makeup and relax between shots? Will there be crowds nearby—and, if so, are you comfortable shooting in front of others?

I’ve seen amazing sessions everywhere from backyards to baseball fields, lakes to open meadows. I know the area and can help make recommendations based on your family’s unique needs, personalities and inspirations.  If you need help with suggestions on locations contact me and I will gladly work with you to find the perfect photography location for your photo session.

Here are a few of my favorite spots from recent sessions.  From urban to country there are plenty of local areas that will represent your families style in your photos!
