April Marquardt, Works of Love Photography: Children by the Light of the Setting Sun

Wow... gorgeous children, gorgeous light, I don't really now what I can possibly say about these photos that they don't already say for themselves.  Beautiful!  What a way to start the week!  Thank you April for sharing these lovely works of art with us today! from April: "I love the emotion you can feel in these images, as this really is their personality too. The processing was very minimal, as the sun provided all the haziness I wanted."

Cat's take:

The light in these images paints an idyllic painting! The flowers, the tall grass, the wild light bouncing behind these children...it's all part of a perfect package that ends with a magical product: dreamy, romantic photographs of three gorgeous children.

With children, we are often slaves to nap time, dinner time, and bedtime schedules when it comes to scheduling our portrait sessions. However, if you can work it so that your session is scheduled right before sunset, like this series above, you can utilize the incredible, showering horizontal light of the setting sun. And light is everything in photography! It makes a good photograph great. Consult with your photographer to maximize the light!
