The cold season is upon us and it seems like everyone shies away from outdoor photos. I realized that our late fall here in Charlotte makes for gorgeous photos in mid to late November. The trees in the Green park were fully cloaked in colors of red, yellow and orange. I will seriously miss the falls around here if I ever move away.

Now I am no lighting expert but I have to write a little something about cloudy days and photography. Some clients get worried when the sky fills with clouds on the day of their session. Honestly, cloudy days are some of my favorite days to shoot in. I lose some contrast but for the most part, skin tones are softer, textures are smoother and eyes are brighter if a reflector is used.

This session with Christen was so fun. It was good to met up with an old classmate. Everyone should congratulate her because she just got engaged to a very handsome young man.
