Sometimes you just have to trust your gut. I had been searching for a beautiful fall color location for this families shoot. She wanted colors. Fall colors. In Bloomington. It seemed like we should go somewhere really glorious because there are so many beautiful places around here. But everywhere I looked I couldn’t get this location out of my mind. I had been to this park for my sons cross country meet, during the golden hour, and saw the beautiful light reaching over the trees and touching down on the spectators and runners. My heart skipped a beat, obviously, and I knew I had to do a shoot here. This family seemed like the perfect match for this lovely park! But besides me thinking it would be perfect, they trusted me on it. I loved everything about this shoot. They are so much fun, just look at all these busting smiles. Plus their family is full of a huge amount of love. And I know they’re like this even when they’re not having their family photos taken…because we were friends before they were clients. I’m one lucky girl.
