"Hey! Wouldn't THIS be a great location for portraits?"

September 20, 2012  •  4 Comments

Does anyone else drive around and think, "Hey, wouldn't this be a great location for portraits?" No? Just me? Huh.

Everywhere I go, I look for lighting and backdrops.  I passed this field/bridge for 2 years, every day, morning and afternoon, and drooled.  After 2 years, I got up the nerve to ask permission to shoot there!  The owners were completely gracious and said, "yes!" 

When a client asked for an old barn and a stone wall, I knew the perfect spot - and screwed up my courage to ask the owners' permission to shoot there (are you sensing a theme in my bold behavior? ;)  Again, the owners obliged.

(Side note: If a super-cute family brings out their shades and looks adorable, go ahead and shoot into the sun.  Otherwise, this shot is a no-no;)

This summer, I took a big deep breath and e-mailed a local business that I pass everyday, The Jackson House Bed and Breakfast, in Railroad.  Almost immediately Pam, the owner, e-mailed to say she thought it was a wonderful idea for 2 local businesses to support each other!  This morning I went to The Jackson House where she served a fantastic eggs benedict breakfast; her guests and I chatted; and, we talked about working together.  I have just scheduled my first session there in early October, and I can't wait to share it with you!  Please take the time to click on the link to her B&B.  It is beautiful and the food is wonderful.  I didn't get to try out the hot tub, but I'm guessing it's great;) 

If you drive by a beautiful spot, let me know.  I'll breathe into a bag ask for permission to shoot there and we'll create some gorgeous portraits!

This is a beautiful place. I've stayed here several times over the years and always found it to be one of my happy places.
