Tell us a little bit about your session!
My clients have a family farm with a barn, a tractor, hay bales and wide open fields as far as the eye can see. They invited me to shoot their family session there … as if I’d say no. I said YES, site completely unseen. Why? Because farms are amazing. I didn’t need to see it to know that there would be ample light of all kinds – directional light, backlight, hard shadows, soft shadows, the whole spectrum. I knew it could be epic and I wanted to play my part. What did concern me was whether or not the fields would be in prime photography shape on the one date we selected. Farms change every day – produce grows, it gets cut, it gets sold, repeat. Sometimes the crops are sparse. Sometimes they are too tall, too abundant. Farms are always in flux so needless to say, we didn’t really know whether our dream list would come together. It did. We had a back-up plan and didn’t even need it. Everything came together so beautifully – the perfectly seasoned golden soybean crops, the hay bales (rolled and ready to go but not gone) even the weather was glorious.
