Atlanta Family Photographer, Tamela Hall shares 6 tips on finding the perfect location for your next portrait session.

One of the best parts of hiring a me as your Atlanta Family Photographer is I’ve been doing this whole picture-taking thing for a while and I have a huge arsenal of incredible session locations for you to choose from. It’s sort of how Joanna Gaines has a warehouse full of vintage doors, windows and other cool things that she can pull out at a moments notice and you ‘Ooo and Ahhh’ over. That said, I totally understand that you want to have a say in choosing your portrait session backdrop. It is your session, after all! To be honest, we are super eager to hear what you have in mind, and we might even have some sweet location ideas to share with you off the top of our head because that’s what it’s like working with one the best Atlanta Family Photographer around! 馃槈

Here Are My Tips On 6 Ways To Find the Perfect Session Location For Your Portraits
Really, choosing the best location for your portrait session is about figuring out what vibe you are going for and then from there we can brainstorm together to find a spot that鈥檒l make your heart skip a beat. Here are six ways to jump start the process:

路 Consider Your Preferred Style:

The best portrait sessions capture your existing style. Think of what your favorite outfits are and what sort of style you are drawn to, and then we will come up with complementary session location. For example, if you lean toward bohemian, then an urban landscape may not be your jam.

路 Are you Thinking Indoors or Outdoors?

Both have their perks, but by narrowing down your choice to either indoor or outdoor we鈥檒l be able to quickly refine the focus.

路 Think About Color:

Do you want bright and splendid backdrop, or one that is more minimalist? By narrowing down your preferred color story, we can narrow down your session location.

路 How Many People Are Being Photographed?

This detail matters for a few locations, especially if you decide to go with a small space or an indoor locale. If it is just you or a few people total, then your options are limitless. Large groups, however, require large and open spaces, otherwise things may start to feel crowded or overwhelming during the shoot itself.

路 Consider Sentimental Spots:

If a location has special meaning to you then it can make your session and images even more personalized. For example, engagement sessions taken at your first-date location, family portraits taken in your forever home, or the ice-cream shop you went to all the time as a kid. Like the location below; this family hikes this trail weekly and they love going on adventures there. That means they have a personal connection to this location which in turn will make them love their portraits that much more!

路 Look at Some of Your Favorite Images:

What sort of portrait images are you drawn to when scrolling through social media or flipping through a magazine? Is it rich, lush greenery? Is it gritty graffiti? Hazy fields? Modern lines? Let this natural inclination inform your session location choice.
