Take Great Pictures AnywhereAs a wedding and family photographer, I have the awesome opportunity to take pictures at a lot of amazing locations in and around Hampton Roads! I like to think that I’m pretty adept at rolling with the situation and have the ability to take great pictures anywhere. So when I made a location suggestion for the Arcangelo family to do their holiday pictures, I figured we were good to go… right up until I pulled up to the location and realized that it wasn’t decorated like I thought it was going to be.

Deep breath… nobody panic.

As I said before, I know that I can take great pictures anywhere. The only thing I was irritated about was the fact that the Christmas decorations weren’t up for my clients, so we had to switch to plan B (which was made up right there on the spot!). Since we were in the middle of a shopping center in Greenbriar at 2 o’clock in the afternoon, I decided to make the best of the location and see what we could use for pictures.
