Location, Location, Location...

One of my favorite environments to do a portrait session in is a barn.
Preferably a horse facility (and preferable with a horse involved with the shoot)

Each corner presents another wonderful back drop.
With peeling paint, weathered wood, open fields, hay bales and of course a beautiful model and handsome equine to top off the mix!

Enclosed pastures are perfect for including a curious horse without worrying about him getting loose - and into trouble!
Include a bright red velvet chair and you have a perfect accent to add a touch of contrast to the scene.

With each location, it's also fun to include some variety to the portraits by having a wardrobe change.

 Each style creates the scenes - whether it's a relaxed comfortable pose and setting, or a more put together look and traditional feel.

I also treasure the moments that just happen to come together, not so posed, but evoke a special bond or emotion.

Those can hardly be duplicated.
But when they happen it's just magic!
