As a family and child photographer, I'm always looking for new locations and areas to do sessions. I have a good 4-5 that are my staples, but always keep my eyes open for new places. I had one location in mind that I had checked out last year, but never shot there. I had recently done a session with my girls so they were NOT going to allow me to shoot them again, haha (I always like to try a new location first before using it with a client). Thankfully my sister and niece were coming over and the weather was going to be perfect for a little mini shoot. I talked them both into coming with me (and Brianna (my oldest) as her and her cousin are glued at the hip when they get together; and ice cream may have been mentioned for after the shoot!) So I found a dress I had in Elli's size, let her pick out a headband or halo (they all choose halo's now, hehe) and we headed out for golden hour. The location was great, but with all the rain we had in the last week, we couldn't go to the other areas I was hoping to check out. And there were also a bunch of pesky flies! It was so weird, we were bothered by flying, buzzing buggers, but none of us really got bit by any mosquitoes. I think they were more flies then mosquitoes (we noticed this in my backyard that night too when we were eating dinner). Anyway, what do you think of this location? This is mostly just one area as Elli didn't last long, but I'm digging the yummy light!
