Our challenge for this month’s portrait session was to select a creative location and include a pullback. A pullback essentially means you ‘pull back’ by physically moving to show more of the setting and surroundings of the session–giving an overview of what of the rest of the location looked like. The location I chose isn’t necessarily ‘creative’ but it is a favorite place for me and my family. ┬áThese images were taken at Spaulding Lake which is a private lake in my in-law’s neighborhood. We spend lots of time here; my boys love to fish and swim in the lake, so it a favorite summer spot for us.

Portrait Project with Pullback

I wanted a timeless image of my youngest with our sweet dog, Maisy. I know I will treasure these! Please continue through our circle of photographers to see other creative locations and the pullbacks for each. You can begin my visiting my very talented friend, Suzanne Carey | Hattiesburg, MS Photographer. Her work is always so inspiring!

    This is a wonderful spot to choose! The first one with your son and pup is the one I keep going back to, a keeper for sure.

    I ADORE these! I love how you assume it’s a little boy on a huge dock… And the B&W conversion of your son and the dog just melts my heart–that should be framed HUGE in your house!!!!
