Location Location Location

I made plans with a family member to take family pictures for them. We settled on a location - a beautiful preserved land in our area. We set a time. All plans were in order. A few hours before I needed to leave to meet up with them, I thought to myself, "maybe I should check the hours of this place." You know. Just to really solidify all the plans and ensure there would be no surprises. I do not do well with surprises. I figured it would close at sun down or something like that. Like a normal park. But no... it closes at 5:30. A good hour and a half before our set time.

So I pivot. There is a park that I know well just down the street that I KNOW doesn't close till sun down. The family is flexible and agree to meet there instead.

Crisis averted.

And the shoot went beautifully. Their little boy, just over one year old, was a wanderer. I know his type well. It was a joy to watch him just want to see and touch and be everywhere. And those curls! Gotta love 'em.

For a few more photos from their shoot, check out the Family Portraits album.
