Urban locations are ideal for families with multiple children as there is a lot to keep them occupied and having fun instead of smiling at the camera. I photograph families in a journalistic style with some posed portraits as well.
Do you have a trendy family? Is the home a little more modern in decor? Want a little less nature, a little more texture?
Downtown settings have great alleys, brick, reflections and back lighting. If you have mobility issues or children in strollers then this may be better than the wood. Walking is involved as we move from metal staircases to architectural elements, brick walls and industrial backdrops.
The plus side of shooting downtown? You can walk to any number of awesome restaurants when you’re finished your session to reward yourself with a treat!
