On Location – the sights and sounds

As I find new locations, I like to share them with my clients so that we can in turn use them during a session!  Periodically, I take pictures as I find somewhere that stimulates my creativity, and I will post them to my blog!  If you want to use any of the locations that I share, please specify when scheduling your session! :)  Hover your mouse over the image to see it’s location.
