This is a list of my commonly used locations. You can choose one of these or chose a location of your own.
Each location has a good time of year and good time of day to shoot there. Most sessions are shot about an hour before sunset, some are shot 20 minutes before sunset and some are shot in the middle of the day. Some locations are only available two months out of the year. This is where being a professional comes into play and knowing your subject. I have a formula to make my photos look this way. Choose a location and then talk to me about when.
Below you'll see my daughter Jasmine at the Rose garden when we were doing some location scouting in 2017. She's a champ, always willing to ride along and pose. Fast forward to 2019, I used this location for Christines maternity session. It turned out so lovely. This is her dress and the she made her flower crown. These are still some of my favorite photos.
Location Scouting at UNM
I took my daughter Jessica location scouting at UNM, around 2018 or 19 maybe?, and this was one of the areas that I love now. Its interesting to see the difference between the color balances of the two photos. I prefer yellow toned photos, like most people. Which do you prefer?
