I got the idea for this photo because I was really inspired by Lisa Holloway and wanted to shoot kids. I contacted one of my old students and met up with her mom and we set a date for shooting. I didn't really have any concept in mind except that I wanted to back light her.
It was really sunny day and we walked around quite a lot, but when I found this location, I knew it was going to look good. Sun was quite high at this point, but the trees behind filtered it just right and made the background glow.
I had to direct her a lot but at this point she was feeling more relaxed, so I'm glad that this was one of the last locations we did.
