We landed at an awesome location for Christy and Chris's maternity shoot. It was a farm tucked away in Chepachet, RI called Whispering Winds Farm. I have to admit, Tara did the legwork and found this one.
Christy and Chris are due in the middle of August and wanted to shoot in a rural setting. It doesn't get much more rural than farms so that's where we headed. They're situated on a lot of land and take care of race horses, give hay rides, and raise an assortment of other animals. Their big thing is horse riding lessons for competition, given by the owner Pat, who competes herself. Pat was more than kind to let us roam around the grounds and go wherever we wanted.
The spot worked out perfectly, as it gave us a traditional farm environment along with a cool indoor spot that was a huge cavernous room and also the discovery of a really old beat up pick-up truck. I don't think the truck was on the farm property because we had to hop across a stone wall, but no one came out to yell at us so I guess it was fine.
We couldn't have asked for better light. The trees were filtering the sunlight and making some pretty sweet light patterns everywhere. I love shooting evening hours.
Christy is a sister of Jen (Riley's mom for those of you that remember those shoots) who is the sister of Shaun (Ava's dad for those of you that remember that shoot). It's so cool to get recommended from one family member to the next. Thanks Tucker clan.
Looking forward to meeting their baby girl and taking some newborn photos of her (and them) in August.
