Although I have a studio location and it serves as an excellent backdrop for clean and simple photos, I love taking families throughout Riverton in order to get a little bit of nature in their portraits. Since their little girl was turning one and we were doing a cake smash inside the studio, I knew it would be nice to get a few additional photos outside as well. This photo proves that you don't always need the perfect location in order to get a great photo - you need the perfect light. The sun was a bit bright this morning but I love how it is filtered through the branches and fall leaves. Mom, dad, and baby are facing away from the light so that they don't have shadows on their faces and also so that they aren't squinting into the sun. This location in particular is in a parking lot in downtown Riverton, NJ just across the street from the studio. There were cars parked directly behind me and there is even a bit of chain link fence along those trees. We just found a spot with beautiful light and went for it and I love how it turned out.
