        This particular photo is taken in the mountains, but these type of shots can be taken in town or in your own estate as well. It’s the time when city lights come on, but it’s still not fully dark outside. It’s precious especially in autumn, when the days are getting shorter.

        Do you remember the endless evenings spent in your estate playing kerbs? There is always something special in the places we grow up in. Having some childhood shots taken in the estate where your kids grow up is always a good idea. I am sure these will be the shots, they will cherish when they grow up.

        If you’re interested in any of the seasonal shoots, I would recommend to make your bookings as soon as possible. But the best would be to give me 1-2 months notice, depending on the season, late spring and summer months up to end of September are very busy, but winter months are quieter and more flexible.
