Summer is FAST approaching! Who can believe it?! I for one am excited for longer days to enjoy the outdoors and the extra hours. Summer also allows you to capture portraits that are different from anything that you would capture any other time of the year. The go-to family portrait time seems to be fall but what about doing something different? Something unique? Summer provides that perfect golden hue to natural light portrait photography that you can’t capture any other time of the year. The golden hour is just after sunrise and again just before sunset. The warm glow of the sun creates the perfect backdrop to give images a rich golden hue. Whether away at the beach or down the road at the lake, take this time to get out of your usual surroundings and capture unique images of your family.
Summer is also the perfect time for Rising Senior Sessions. I can’t believe it but my oldest son, Jackson, is about to graduate in a just a few short weeks. Cue the Kleenex stat! I’m feeling sentimental right now…didn’t he just learn to walk? How is he graduating high school? Didn’t I just graduate high school? My how the time flies while you are on this journey of life! I am excited for all the things he will experience in this next stage of life as he enters college. Do you have a Rising Senior in your family? Summer provides an opportunity for creative portraits for your soon to be Senior. Showcase them with their favorite things or in their favorite summer hangout location.
