I always want to try out new places…but I still get a little nervous. I like to be familiar with the location so I know what I’m working with and I have a game plan in mind before the couple even arrives. Robyn wanted her maternity session on one of the beautiful beaches on the Marine Corps Base. I have visited the base three times (once because I had my wedding reception there) and have never gone to the beaches, although I have heard that they are gorgeous. I always try to scope out locations beforehand to be uber prepared so Robyn and I made plans to scout out beaches. It is on a military base, so I couldn’t just swing on my free time even though it is just ten minutes from my house. Unfortunately, we kept missing chances to meet up and then she came down with the cold so we just had to wing it on the day of her session. They had a busy day so we were pressed for time when we met up at the base. We decided to just stop at the first beach we hit before the afternoon light faded away. It worked out perfectly. I couldn’t have asked for a better location with great variety. And the sun refused to leave so we even spent extra time getting bonus shots in. Score!!! And if you want to have a session at someplace completely different than the norm or just have any suggestions on unique locations, let me know!!
Here’s some sneak peeks from Ronnie and Robyn’s maternity session.
