We recently had the opportunity to photograph Abby's Senior Pictures. We started downtown Lafayette to take advantage of the Alley Ways and local graffiti. We love urban settings for Senior Sessions and Lafayette has some interesting backdrops.
The Advantage of photographing on location is, you have unlimited options for backdrops. This is why we never went the studio route. Studio's can really limit your options, of course you are limited on weather conditions, but the results really pay off. Urban setting can be casual or sophisticated, the options are yours.
Of course you can mix it up, like Abby did. After shooting downtown we headed to the Celery Bogs in West Lafayette, just 10 minutes away. This changed the entire setting. The Celery Bogs in West Lafayette offers a great backdrop. It's probably one of our favorite places to photograph.
Sometimes these area's can get interesting for the photographer, I had to climb off of a small bridge to get the angel that I needed.
The images opportunities are also great here. Tall grass, shaded trails, water backdrops etc... There is also a great place here to change outfits as well, which is a big plus. The Bog can be busy, so weekdays are best.
