Shooting in the ugliest spots - family photographer in kitchener

September 25, 2018

Location, Location, Location!  I think that's probably the biggest misconception out there when you're thinking about your family portraits.  The fact of the matter is there are a few key ingredients that will make a beautiful family portrait - and location is not one of them.

Light

Texture

Your photographer

YOU.

I actually get a real kick out of picking some really not nice and unassuming locations and challenging myself to find a way to photograph it beautifully.    Last week on a harried weeknight dinner on the run at McDonalds, I noticed a sweet little patch of flowers beside the parking lot.  Last night I took my children there and did a photoshoot.

This little shoot was on a very grey and gloomy evening at about 5:00pm.  It took a total of 11 minutes to accomplish and guys - it was legit at the side of the Mickey D's!  So there you go.  We were in a tiny area of about 20 square feet, I pulled some clothes together out of the kids wardrobes that sort of worked together and voila!

So - next time I ask you to shoot in a fast food parking lot - just go with it ;)
