I am constantly in search of the 'perfect' outdoor locations that are within minutes of my home! This changes on a yearly and seasonal basis and is also dependent on the time of day. I actually do many sessions literally in our backyard at our home. With Big Creek, Saylorville and Jester Park close by, there are always a number of great options with lots of different outdoorsy looks! My goal is always to find a place that is no longer than a five minute drive from my house... and I have many!! They include the ever popular 'bridge' and walking path, gorgeous fields, beach areas, and lots of colorful trees in the fall. I don't hit the popular downtown spots, parks that many photographers flock to, or drive long distances for my outdoor sessions for a number of reasons.
Occasionally I will travel to a location that is a longer commute for me, but I charge an additional fee. If you have a specific 'look' for your outdoor session you want, please don't hesitate to tell me and I'll consider the possibilities that I have nearby my home. Typically, all of my outdoor sessions will start at our home (304 N. Apache, Polk City) as a central meeting spot for everyone.
