This was my second time photographing Min, Brooke and the rest of the family. For this particular session, I wanted to mix it up a bit and do a few different locations. Luckily, Min and her family were up for it! I decided to focus on the Mission Marsh area as well as the area around it. I couldn't believe how much taller Charlotte was since the last time I saw her. Of course there was also Shelby, their dog who joined as well.
The first stop was along the trails in East End. We didn't stay too long, but I did manage to get a few initial family group photos and a bunch of Charlotte who was instantly posing for the camera.
After we finished there, we hopped back into the vehicles and drove to where all the deer hang out on the dirt road. I asked Min if she and her family were up for more a rustic background and she was totally down for it. There are a ton of great hidden backdrops if you look hard enough and my absolute favourite is an abandoned car in the field. Some of my favourite photos from the session came from that spot.
When we were done with the car, I peeked around the corner and there was a huge hollow pipe that Charlotte absolutely fell in love with. It was hard to pull her away as she kept on wanting to play in it. It was worth it though, as she provided me with a gem of the photos which you can see below.
The last stop on the was at Mission Marsh. By the time we got there the sun was perfectly low in the sky and I got some great backlit photos. It was so awesome photographing such a laid back and go with the flow family. I even managed to get some keepers of Shelby.
