Choosing a Location for Your Photo Session
It’s easier than you may think.
Pick a place where you’re comfortable – some place you and whoever you’re photographed with can relax and be themselves.
If it’s some place that has special meaning to you – where he or she proposed, the park your family loves to visit, the stable where you ride horses, your grandmother’s garden, your favorite place to go for a walk – that’s a bonus. Because then you can revisit the good memories you already have there while you’re making even more of them.
If you’d prefer indoors, you can choose your home. Theoretically you should be really comfortable there. Is there a spot that gets a lot of good natural light around the time we’re taking photos? Sounds good. We can even step outside and take a few photos in your backyard if you’d like. Or we could do the whole session back there.
Maybe there’s another cool space that you can get special access to like a roof-top deck or an airplane hanger.
But really? We could do your whole session in front of a brick wall and still show real moments, real beauty, and real love. As long as you’re comfortable in front of a brick wall. :)
Cool-looking location? Nice.
Location that has meaning to you? Even better.
A place where you feel comfortable being yourself? Best.
Ultimately? Where your photos are taken is important but not nearly as important as who is in them.
