Part of the fun of photographing people is scouting new locations. I usually drag one (or both) of my kids along so that I can get a feel for what photographing in that location will feel like in a session. Today the kids and I drove only a few blocks away to the beautiful Bridgeport lake. The setting is so gorgeous with its gorgeous lake, ducks, bridges, and greenery that make a perfect backdrop for portrait sessions. Here are a few of my favorites. Despite my kids being very cranky today, I still managed to get a few great shots!
