Picture of the Day - April 20th

This is Sarah and Jackson - two of our favorite clients! This was our first session with them, and the pictures were amazing. It was a Sunday morning, around 8 a.m., and we barely squeezed in the shoot before a big thunderstorm hit. We drove around this tiny community and took pictures on this bridge, the train tracks, by trees and anywhere else we thought of. There are several things about this picture that I love.  I love the pose - Mommy holding her little boy's hand - it doesn't get any sweeter than that!  I love the old bridge, and the natural framing it provides.  The overcast morning provided punchy colors and soft, even light.

If there were anything about this picture that I would change, it would probably be to see more of their path, in front of them.  I would've loved to show a long trail on the other side of the bridge, complete with trees overhanging, and a winding suggestion of life.  In real life, though, the other side of the bridge was a dead end, and how poetic is that?  Not very.  So I chose to not show it.  In spite of that, I love this picture for the rest of the elements, and forgive the lack of a future path!
