Lesson learned from my shoot with the beautiful Abram family! Picking a location ahead of time is necessary, but it's also important to show up early and scout out the area.
We were originally supposed to meet at Squires Castles in Willoughby Hills, but upon my arrival I saw how unexpectedly busy the area was on this particular evening. I knew I had a toddler and a dog coming to the shoot and having a lot of distractions was really going to work against me. I took some time and drove around the area searching for other beautiful backdrops. Luckily, I came across this field of wild flowers just a minute down the road. The yellows help to break up all of the summery greens and add some dimension to the photos.
Thanks to Janice and Kyle (and Grayson and Charlie!) for being willing to change locations in the last minute so we could have a more peaceful experience!
