Scouting shoot locations and getting test shots done can be a very lengthy and tedious process. It can take hours, days, or weeks to find just the right spot at the right location for the shoot you are planning.
For this particular shoot, we are doing a multi-generational series. The third generation and their new baby, the second generation, the first generation, and finally: all three generations in one portrait.
Accommodating this many moving pieces can be quite a challenge. We needed to find a location that would fit the family, fit the style the client wants, and also produce the best series of photos.
We went out and scouted a few locations. Check out the first test shots below. Final location ended up being elsewhere, but I still personally love this beautifully hidden location.
