Location, Location, Location!

Finding the right location

Picking the right location for your portrait session is essential to getting portraits you'll love! The Fredericksburg area has so many beautiful locations it might be hard to choose, but this page will hopefully give you enough information to make the best decision for your needs. Some locations require permits and fees. It is the responsibility of the client to pay for all fees and permits associated with your chosen location.

What to keep in mind.....


Most clients will be hanging their final images in their home. Think about your home decor and pick a session location that will look good hanging on your walls in your home.


Not only do you want a look that is cohesive in your home, but think about the vibe of the location. Do you want a place that's cheery and bright? Do you want a location more subdued and natural? Would you like your session near water?


The season your session takes place has a huge effect on your final images. Think about what your location will look like during your session. Will there be flowers blooming? Will the grass and trees be brown? If it's downtown will there be holiday lights hanging? Will the river look healthy and vibrant? Do you want fall colors as a backdrop?


Think about your wardrobing for your session and make sure it will blend with your chosen location and season.
