Sunday Funday: Location Scouting

Location, location, location! I have been stuck inside for too long ya'll, so this past Sunday, on our way home from church, I MADE my hubby stop for a little impromtu session. I am so glad that I did!!! I have been eyeballing this little place for sooo long, but laziness and fear always stopped me. Yes, I said fear!! Sounds funny, but I was afraid I wouldn't capture any good imagery, or the kids will just misbehave or someone will be there and watching us, or I'll be told I can't photograph there. Silly reasons, but reasons nonetheless.

Sounds funny, but I was afraid I wouldn't capture any good imagery, or the kids will just misbehave or someone will be there and watching us, or I'll be told I can't photograph there. Silly reasons I know, but reasons nonetheless. Well I finally let go of that fear and just did it, and I am so glad that I did! I found a wonderful new location for sessions and the kids had a blast! It was so much fun to capture them having such a good time.

Not to mention finally capturing a few enviornmental portraits. I am in desperate need of imagery like this for my portfolio and I think I got several that will work!!

In spite of it being mid day and in harsh sunlight; focusing on capturing enviornment and movement is key for capturing decent imagery. Though as you can see here, there are a few images with pretty harsh light and shadows on my kids' faces,  but they are so stinkin cute, I had to share them anyway. It's them, "mom goggles," what can I say, ha, ha!

I am so happy to have found another location for sessions. This place will be perfect for capturing silhouettes and, OMG.... Can you imagine a Golden Hour session here?? I will definitely be coming back for that ya'll so stay tuned!!
