This was a fun day today. I got the permission from the Aberle Farms to take some client photos in their sunflower fields and yesterday I told a client the time was now to get in before the heads drop or we have to wait another year for the chance. Every year there is a short window of time to do this so I jump into the fields as much as I can before that time runs away from me.
This day we were asked by a local physician to take some shots of her daughter in the sunflower fields. Wonderful family and the daughter is adorable so I was very happy for the chance to do so. She was a little shy at first but after some time she opened up and was very playful about the whole thing towards the end of the shoot. I may be a bit of a child myself so anything she would do would pale in comparison to what I am willing to do to get a shot if need be. :-) haha
We took some shots in three different locations and I believe we got some images that mother will be happy with for a long time to come. That is always our goal when we are done. I have always said not one person will pick the shots they like that another would pick. So, that being said, I always try to have a variety of shots for them. I usually am hard on myself even at the end of doing this, though never be justified in doing so, the client is usually very happy with the result.
I am very thankful for this season, the farmers permission, the mothers trust in us and most of all the Client (beautiful Sully this time around) for the experience and trust that goes into this session. It was a lot of fun and look forward to the next opportunity. :-)
