One of the most important tools as a photographer you can have in your toolbox if a short list of go-to places for photo sessions. You are bound to come across a client or two that leaves the planning up to you. I’ve recently moved and have been taking the winter months to discover new locations to test out during sessions where the plans are fully left to me (it’s great having clients that really let you be as creative and free as you want!)
One of the favorite places to shoot sessions is by the beach. I’m lucky enough to live on the gold coast of Connecticut and there are a ton of beaches within a short driving distance of me. One of my top five would be Seaside in Bridgeport, CT. What makes this place great is its versatility. It’s half beach on one end and half park on the other. There are a ton of benches, picnic tables, stone sculptures, fields, and landscape that it’s impossible to be lost for ideas. Here are a few of my favorite places to shoot while I’m there.
