Dawn arrives early in summer. At this home, we arrived at 4:00AM to guarantee we were set to shoot when the first deep hues of blue infused the sky with rich color. Time of day is critical in capturing the varying mood of an outdoor space. Here we started at the break of day which allowed the personality of the landscape lighting to be visible–but we continued shoot the morning at different intervals until we captured the sun breaking spectacularly over the horizon. By taking advantage of dawn and dusk hours, we were able to shoot different facets of this home’s character–evening, morning, daytime–in just a few hours’ time.
