This little girl was so incredibly sweet! And when she walked up in that beautiful purple wool coat and matching scarf set, I knew we were going to have a great session! Her parents love color and I am so happy to be able to use a location that really showcases Autumn.
we began the session near an old power factory museum in Helsinki – I just had to get that late season moss and fallen leaves in the old bricks and concrete area. I really wanted her beautiful brown eyes and vibrant colors to stand out and not have to compete with too much distraction. Because, it really was all about that sweet face.
To get to the other side of the river, we traveled across a spam bridge and found a lovely area where several streams and the river converge. The late setting sun beautifully lit up the area and I was able to get several shots before the sun set behind the old factory. Then we enjoyed an area lined with oaks and plenty of fallen leaves.
I switched between lenses for the session – using the longer 70-200 to compress the background and increase the focal plane with the family shots. And it ended up being especially useful on the riverbank to remove unwanted distractions across the water. My 85 then provided the means for showcasing that beautiful face and personality.
I truly believe I am the luckiest photographer in all of Finland. These pictures can definitely show you why!
