Where should I do my shoot?
Where should you do your photography shoot?? This is a very common question for me. Some clients know exactly where they want their shoot done, others kinda have an idea, then others don't have a clue. :-) I can deal with any of these and anywhere in between. I'll photograph almost anywhere, I've shot from land, in the woods, in a boat, from a boat, from the back of a moving truck, from a boom lift, from the top of a building, in backyards, and other locations. (I can't wait for someone to want a skydiving engagement session!! LOL!) Anyway, here are some links to some sessions that I've done in the Acadiana area. Hope this helps!
