Don’t get caught up trying to find the perfect location for your family shoot. Depending on the ages of your children and the different stages they are in, loading everyone into the car, driving to a location which may or may not have bathroom facilities, staying clean, and then getting everyone to play happily can be a challenge!
Backyards make great locations! What matters is the light, not the location.
I took these pictures just steps away from the family’s home. There was no fuss. No styling. No posing. Just play and light, beautiful afternoon fall light.
