I don't think I can scream it loud enough. Location sets the mood for your session. Sure, you can bring props, and your attire definitely defines a part of the session but the location is going to be your backdrop, your atmosphere. A good photographer will help you find the right location for what you're vision is for your session. It is my goal as your photographer to give you ideas on a location that will work for you and your family. Sure, there are places that are always amazing. Like Kathryn Albertson Park, Lake Lowell or Freak Alley. But take the time to really discuss with your photographer what you're wanting and get creative. Consider driving a ways for an amazing location and you never know; the perfect spot might be right under your nose.
Whatever location you choose I encourage you to ask your photographer and get creative! Picking a location can be a ton of fun!
