Sister Sessions

When photographers talk about sister sessions, it usually means that they're photographing sister. This time, I got to photograph MY sister! She sent me a message that her little guy was wearing the cutest shirt and she hadn't done any 10 month pictures, so I got to play with my camera and hang out with my sister for a bit.

Our first stop was to my favorite and most used place at Veteran's Park. This bridge doesn't have tall sides or rails and is in the perfect location for sunset. It has plenty of room for larger families and is beautiful with the sun coming through the trees behind you.

After some warm up shots on the bridge, we moved about 50 feet to the south to an area I had long ignored. I don't know why it took me so long to notice this spot because it is just gorgeous. Golden sun glowing through the tree, tall wispy grass and reeds bring in some texture and depth, and it has plenty of space for some wide angle shots along with close ups. We did some fun poses, had a few laughs, and moved on to the main focus of the shoot.

The main goal of the shoot was to get to this small beach area and let the baby splash in the water. I've known of this little area since I was a kid, but I never really looked at it through a creative lens.

It's a fun little place, secluded from the main bike path, with a sandy beach and a nice shallow area for wading. When I was a kid, my brother and I would ride our bikes down there and play in the water for hours. If this specific spot was taken by someone else, we knew of a few other little beaches along the river. I really feel this park is my own little hidden gem. Plenty of people know about it, but it's never as busy as the more popular parks in town so I don't think it's as well known, and I think I want to keep it my little secret. Take a look and tell me what you think about this spot. Should I do some more shots here? .... Pretty sure I know the answer to that one. HAHA!
