So I met Karen and her son Holden on the top of Camelback Mountain at Big Pocono State Park. They were visiting the Poconos for a long weekend, and wanted to include a photo session. We spoke on the phone when planning this out and I knew it was going to be a fun shoot just from that.
Karen was a cool Mom and Holden was a great kid. You could easily see they were very close and in sync. Karen mentioned that they lived in various areas of the country which was cool. At such a young age, Holden has seen a lot of the world!
We wandered around the park looking for cool spots and kept it very causal. I could tell they were both very easy going and the shoot would go better if I kept things simple and fun. We headed down a path and hung out in a wooded area. There were so many spots to use and we did just that. I was looking for some cool compositions using the tress for framing.
We used the cool stone building as big prop too. These two where natural models!
After a while we headed back down the mountain to hang out with a swan. Yep, you read that right. There is a nice pond area where some ducks and a swan hang out. It was such a great idea to stop. Karen is a yoga instructor and started doing some poses from being inspired by the beauty of the surroundings. We nailed a few individual poses there since they were both feeling very relaxed.
I love it when it all comes together like that!!!!!!
