Session Share: Wild Grasses!
Inspiration: The inspiration for this session was definitely the location. This is right outside a park that is under construction so they’ve let the grasses grow long and wild. There’s actually orange fencing around the entire perimeter of the park that I’ve either worked around in camera or desaturated in post production.
Favorite Element: The tall grasses. They add a beautiful texture and softness to the images.
Biggest Challenge: This was a 2-part shoot. The first day was in their home where you can see the beautiful tree bookcase this talented daddy handmade. As soon as I got to the location the clouds turned dark and it started pouring. We ended up getting a few images but rescheduled since it was just too dark to do any natural light images indoors.
What the Client Said: This client was thrilled with the final result. She was a lucky one to get both indoor and outdoor images. I’m excited to work with her again for this little girls 4-month, 8-month and 1 year pictures as well.
Photographers’ Final Words: Don’t discount a location based on the overall impression of it. Look for pockets of gems within a location and you’ll be surprised how you can make it work creatively for you.
