There are a few advantages to shooting your session in your own backyard. First, you have your whole wardrobe available, and there is always a bathroom nearby for outfit changes.
Second, Your family members are usually around, so they can jump in a photo if you'd like them to. I could go on, but my favorite advantage is exploring an area familiar to you and finding interesting ways to make art in your own environment.
To me, it's like a puzzle. I take your personality and style, add various outfits in different colors, and put it all together by creatively using the spaces in and around the house. This session is the perfect example for all of this.
For Kate's photos, we used everything from their beautiful garden to the side of the shed. It was a lot of fun to make something out of her every day environment!
Here's Kate in 5 words: fun, classy, sassy, adventurous, and caring.
Sometimes you don't have to go far to find great photo opportunities, you just need a great smile!
Thanks for a fun session Kate, enjoy!
