As we wind down to enjoy the Christmas holidays, I wanted to take a moment to talk about winter at the studio. Typically, I hear many parents express concerns with booking appointments through the winter months because of the cold weather. But, to be honest, these make some of the BEST portraits of the year! In the winter, there’s a natural rosy glow to everyone, the light outside is g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s and families tend to get closer together to keep warm. All of these elements combine to create some amazing photographs. Plus, once we go indoors, the fun really begins and we get to capture those “real” moments of laughing, baking, playing and cuddling that are a part of our lives but rarely get photographed.
Don’t let this wonderful winter season slip by without some portraits of your family. To give you some inspiration, here’s a Winter Lookbook of some of my favorite images from over the past few years. Book a family, child or newborn session this season and fall in (warm) love with winter’s chill all over again.
