hands down-my favorite way to shoot a photo session is with yummy backlighting.
i met with this family at 6:45 am a few weeks ago at Hudson Gardens–a magical place for photography. they were so gracious to agree to meet that early!
the mom noted that the family (especially the twins-now 23) hadn’t been photographed in years so she wanted this to be special. and special it was. that lighting took my breath away!
thanks for trusting in me to capture these memories for you guys. and thanks for being such great sports totally willing to make a two hour tour around the gardens. there were so many different chances to showcase that lovely, lovely light. (and your lovely, lovely family too!)
(my sincere thanks too for working with a tired photographer. prior to our session i had been up photographing my first home birth from 8pm until 4:30 am!) you can see that post here )
