It's not always easy to come up with content for the blog, especially when you realize you had nothing planned for today! Yesterday I reached out to everyone on social media to ask what they would like to see on the blog and I got a couple of questions that I took note of and will answer. Here's the first one:
"What has been your most challenging shooting scenario over the years? Did you get some great shots out of it?"
I'm such a worrier and when challenges come up I get so nervous! Thankfully, it's something that doesn't happen often. The session below comes to mind when I think of a scenario that got a bit challenging. I'm going to guess that these photos were taken in 2012 but I'm honestly not 100% sure.
I booked this sweet family for an early morning session, got into my car, and knew it was a bit foggy out. Until we pulled up to location...
... which was covered in the thickest fog I've ever seen. What was supposed to be a gorgeous field with high grass and trails was no longer usable for pictures. We made our way back to the car, red wagon and pumpkin in tow, until we discovered this open trail where the sun was softy peeking through the fog. I knew it would be perfect!
We placed a wooden crate in the center of the trail and shot here for about 20 minutes. As the fog started to disappear, the sun only became harsher which meant it was time to wrap things up. The solution to this problem was simple: come back in the evening for sunset pictures!
Below are some of the pictures taken in the morning:
Here are a few of the pictures we shot that same evening in the field we originally had planned on starting. Gorgeous, right? See the wagon and pumpkin? So cute!
I think one of the lessons I learned was to be more aware of my surroundings. Had I not been, I would have walked right past the beautiful light coming through the fog.
I can't remember why we planned this session for the morning but now it is definitely a rare exception.
Got a question you would like me to answer? Leave a comment or message me on Facebook. I would love to keep this series going.
