So I'm prolly not supposed to say this... but this is one of my favorite sessions from 2021. This was early morning at Elizabeth Park in West Hartford, Connecticut. This little guy was the happiest babe, and clearly, the dog was too! 90% of photographers will tell you sunset is the best time to shoot at, which I do agree with. But morning sun has something special about it, too. And this session wasn't held immediately at sunrise, either. This was prolly around 9:00am. The light was glowy and energetic. It was bright, not but overwhelming. I definitely am going to start doing some more sessions in early morning light!
