An Impromptu, Golden Sunset Portrait Session

Golden Sunset Portrait Session by Felicia Gwen Photography

Photographer Felicia Gannacone of Felicia Gwen Photography had passed this small field every day without really noticing it. But one day she finally paid attention as a beautiful sunset set it aglow with golden light. She knew she had to capture photos in this lovely field, and waited and waited for the perfect opportunity. When a great warm, sunny day finally arrived, Felicia rushed out with her beautiful daughter Ella for this charming portrait session. It turns out they almost missed the opportunity, as the very next day it had been mowed clean. Felicia said it perfectly:

"One of the short falls in life is waiting for things to be perfect; the perfect time, the perfect setting, the perfect opportunity. Photography has taught me (and continues to teach me) that you don’t have to wait for the perfect time, the perfect location. You have seize the moment, take the opportunity, find the light, and capture life as it happens."
