L O C A T I O N S
Each person has a different type of setting that fits their own personal style best, and may not even know it yet until after a conversation with me where I get to know them a little better. I may come to find out that they really enjoy the idea of an open field, vintage props, chairs, or fun ideas for their kids such as blowing bubbles or throwing water balloons to serve as a blank canvas for their location/setting. Others may immediately be drawn towards the colorful and urban areas or more traditional garden / forest settings.
Please remember that you have the option of more than one location within your session timeframe. For example, if you like the idea of getting some images taken around a quaint downtown area with neat buildings before heading to a a wooded lake park for the rest of the session, please let me know because more than likely I already have those locations scouted and know exactly where to take you.
If you have a location in mind that isn’t on this list, tell me about it – I love shooting at new locations! And yes, I can do sessions at your home too. Do you have a unique place that includes land with a barn, horses, etc., or a family vacation home at the lake? Do you know of a beautiful field filled with sunflowers right now that you’d like to have your portraits taken in? Please please please do not hesitate to let me know!
For a list of locations that I shoot at regularly, and to get an idea of the different “styles” of setting close to you, I’m presenting a list below. I also have plenty of other locations that I either know of, or have done sessions at that are a little more unique or out of the way. (Example: Baseball/football fields, antique gas pumps, flight/plane museum, open country fields, etc.)
Please feel free to give me a call at 972.998.3133 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss what works for you so we can customize your session to fit you and/or your family.
