1 Easy Tip for Beautiful Family Photos

We’re coming up on SPRING! Spring is a great time of year to book a family session: it’s not too hot, not too cold, and the blooms are lovely. So as you head into your family session, I’ve got 1 easy tip to ensure your photos are a step up.

Let your photographer set your session time.

Your photographer will know the best time of day for the best light. And when you get to your location, your photographer will know where to shoot to take full advantage of that beautiful light!

For me, I love to shoot at sunrise and sunset. I have found that the first two hours after sunrise and the two hours leading up to sunset work best for me and my style. The sun is pretty and glowy, which leads to images that are soft + airy. Sometimes this time of day is tricky with kids, and I get it!!! During the summer, when sunset is much later, I really can’t stomach the idea of photographing my kids at bedtime. That’s a recipe for disaster! In these cases I’m happy to make some adjustments. I have a few tricks up my sleeve for how (and where) to shoot when the sun isn’t quite as soft as I’d prefer.

So as you approach your next family photo session, remember this one easy tip for getting beautiful photos! Trust your photographer! Don’t have your next session on the books? Reach out, I’d love to hear from you!
