Charlotte’s Freedom Park is one of my favorite photography session locations. I shoot there a lot because I love the light and the combination of bridges, water and grassy areas. There are great spots for family portraits as well as candids of the fun we are having during the session. I use the varied backdrops of Freedom Park for everything from babies to teens but it’s important to me to match my clients with the time of day I shoot there. On weekend evenings, Freedom Park gets super busy and dogs/skateboarders/runners can all be very distracting to young kids. Not this family. I knew the kids would be old enough to control a wondering eye or two … plus for kids this age, seeing park life wiz by is great entertainment in-between photo calls. This family and Freedom Park were a perfect match. As you will see we worked our way around the entire park, beat the summer heat and avoided the masses. It almost looks like we had the park to ourselves (we did not!).
This family came to me via not just one, but two referrals. There’s nothing better than knowing clients love your work so much that they are showing and sharing with friends. Thank you awesome people for the recommendations – you know who you are! I loved photographing this family and you made it all possible. Thank you Edwards family for trusting me with your family portraits. I can’t wait to do it again and document your kids as the grow. I also can’t wait to see the new custom wall art in your home. I’ll keep an eye on the mailbox for my invite 😉
