10 on 10: April – Lily in the Fields

In the search for a new location for a family photo shoot this Friday, I decided to check out this spot of trees and wild flowers, about 10 miles from my house, right off the freeway. This is the time of year that I take advantage of the short time that the wild flowers are bright and colorful before the heat of the San Diego sun dries them out.

Lily, my favorite muse, came with me and wanted some new photos too, so when we arrived and saw that we had this place all to ourselves, we were ecstatic! I had to avoid the angles with all the zooming cars coming off the freeway, but that was definitely easy enough in this expansive space.

I love working with Lily. She is so willing to sit or lie down on the raw earth,even with the possibility of bugs and bees, and she often throws in her ideas which are always in sync with what I like too. Here are some of my favorites from that day.

I enjoyed playing with different styles, and even bringing out the light, for more of a ‘senior portrait’ shot of Lily.

Please take a look at the work of those in our 10 on 10 circle starting with the images of Michelle Kirnan and follow around our talented circle of women. It seems some of the links are not working…my apologies…I’m sure they will be fixed soon!
