The tricky part about choosing local locations is understanding the changing seasons; things like blossoming trees, fall leaves and ripe wheat can be available in their full glory for only about 2 to 3 weeks out of the year! It’s so important to understand the sensitive timing of capturing them when planning your session: book ahead if possible but if you see something in a state of perfection locally, also don’t hesitate to reach out and book straight away. 😛
Having said all that, I will try to label the relevant Seasonally altered locations with a time frame of when that aesthetic is available. 😀 Be sure to read the captions.
