        Choosing the right location for your photoshoot sets the whole mood and atmosphere of photos. It reflects your personality and helps to achieve interesting creative look for photos.

        I have MANY options for choosing the location for your photoshoot. I mainly shoot in nature as I find it more natural and simply beautiful. Most of the time I am based in Clonmel,  Ireland, so all the locations I have chosen to feature in this post are around here.

        All the locations look different in different seasons. Location that I would choose during the winter, I might not choose during the summer.

        You can choose from these locations which you feel would suit for your portrait/ family shoot. Some of these locations only work well during certain season, so if you like winter locations, then last time to book your shoot now!

        1. Grass field 

        Best season for shooting: Summer

        Best time of the day: 1-1.5 hours before sunset



        Beautiful and timeless setting. It really is a classical choice and I use this location a lot!

        All the following shoots are done on grass fields.






        2. Beside the little lake 

        Best season for shooting: Any

        This place is close to Clonmel and it’s not the most traditional choice of location. Rather quirky in my opinion. See more from this location and shoot here: http://www.beritalitsphotography.com/zoe/

        3. Abandoned warehouse 

        Best season for shooting: Any

        Best time of the day: Late morning – midday

        4. Blossom Locations

        5. Comeragh Mountains

        Best season for shooting: Any (but since it’s always windy up there, then summer warmer winds are preferred)

        Best time of the day: 1-1.5 hours before sunset


        My boyfriend keeps teasing me saying that if I could, then I would live in mountains. Not quite the truth, but the fact is, I really like it up there! No matter what the season, it always looks pretty much the same and light is always beautiful. I also love the wind – for pretty windswept hair photos.
