We finally had some time to go out to my favorite place and have a mini session in the evening. The weather has been very unstable, but we were graced with gorgeous light that day and I was very happy to get some beautiful captures.
It had been quite some time since I had had an outdoor session and I had really missed it. There is something quite tangible in the way that all the elements come together, the light and the sun, the environment and how it all relates with subject.

Here’s hoping to more warm weather, beautiful locations and gorgeous models!
