3 Benefits of booking a Winter Photo Session

Although I have made the difficult decision to not book indoor sessions because of the COVID pandemic, I am still booking outdoor winter photo sessions.  Winter outdoor sessions are a great option for maternity sessions and families who are willing to brave the cold.  Although you may need to bundle up, there are some benefits to winter sessions. 

Winter Photo Session Light

Winter has some beautiful light.  The great thing about winter sessions is that sunset is early, so we don’t have to wait until late in the day for your session.  Your session won’t mess with bed or dinner time for your kids!

Less crowded

I always prefer locations without a lot of people and especially during the pandemic this is very important to me when choosing a location.  Doing sessions in the winter means that there are less likely to be crowds at the photo session locations.

There is something magical about snow and how excited kids get for it.  A little bit of snow can add some extra beauty to your photos!
