So, not only was it really nice out this past weekend but I was lucky enough to have a bunch of family portrait sessions. The first of which was Min and her wonderful family. I'm often asked to choose a location for a shoot but this time around, Min had a really cool secluded location just off of Hutton Park Drive. To be honest, I really haven't had the chance to explore around that area to much, so I was anxious to see what she had found.
As soon as we arrived at the spot, I knew it was the perfect location. We followed the trail into the forest and immediately there were some great spots to work with. There were old planks of wood covered in moss, some cylindrical stones and of course plenty of trees and high grass.
ne of the first photos I was able to get was Charlotte carrying her basket down the trail. From there we all just wandered around a bit and stopped to capture some photos along the way. I always kept my open for perfect little spots and there were plenty to go around.
A question I am constantly asked if it is ok to bring the family dog(s) along for the session I always encourage it. After all, they are part of the family and why wouldn't you want them there with you. I just love taking photos of animals, especially dogs. It may not always be easy to get them to stand still for very long, but in this case, Shelby did an amazing dog. Plus, when she wasn't posing for the camera she was running up and down the trail smelling everything in site.
All in all it was such a fun session at such an unexpected location. Thanks to Min, her husband Brooke and the rest of the family for a great time.
