The last time I did a newborn session for my cousin, Amanda, I was just starting out in photography, still building my portfolio, a new mom myself with another one already on the way. Here we are just over two years later, and I got to meet sweet baby Adelyn.
I’ve done some location scouting in my area. It starts with an internet search, creating a list, driving around to attempt to check out parks during golden hour, even doing some self portraits at these locations to test them out. I’m always looking for places with beautiful backgrounds, not too crowded and yet not too difficult to access. And yet, the truth is that my favorite location is the one that my client suggests.
