— Maternity Session At Charles Mill Reservoir —

Charles Mill Dam was built in 1935-1936 near Mansfield Ohio. The primary purpose of the dam was to control flooding. Today this area serves as a  scenic location for recreation. Many activities are enjoyed here. They include boating, camping, fishing and hunting.The lake is ideal for the many people who like to enjoy their pontoon boats. With over 500 camp sites there is plenty of room to stay for awhile. The lake offers more than 1,350 acres of surface area and 2000 acres of land. It contains many species of fish. They include Walleye ,Crappie ,Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Northern pike, and several species of catfish. There is a marina on site that offers boat rentals and docking services. Boats may also be purchased from the marina. I personally like to hike around the lake for exercise. I enjoy photographing here. I have many fond memories as a young boy fishing here with my father. We would spend many hours in conversation, always wondering if this would be the day we caught the big one. My family spent many mornings walking here. Walking and taking in the smell of the pines. There is nothing like breathing the crisp air of a winter day. As you can see from the photos below the fall foliage is beautiful. I photographed the session with a Nikon D800. I used a Nikon  70-200mm F2.8 VR II lens. This is a beautiful lens and a work horse in my business. We shot most of the photos with back lighting from the sun. This set the foliage a glow and provided a beautiful back drop for our maternity photo session with Kaitie and Danny. The weather was ideal and the temperature on this fall day was perfect. Below are some photos and a video of this most enjoyable day. If you would like to book a maternity session with us, give us a call, email us or use the contact form above.
