That magical, golden hour.

I love shooting during the last hour before sunset.  The light is stunning and can transform the most boring setting into something magical.  This particular park had some great features:  a tree-lined dirt road, tall grass, and big trees to let the sunlight filter through.  

If you love this look, definitely schedule an evening session!  The soft light is also really flattering for skin tones and doesn't give the subject harsh shadows.

The mother/daughter connection.

I'm a family photographer because I love capturing connections between people.  I want someone to look at a photo and feel the love between family members, and in this case, a mother and daughter.  

Such a special bond, now preserved in print.
