Winter Portraits

Doesn’t everyone love winter portraits?  Several weeks ago, I was asked by a client about doing family portraits for their holiday cards.  When asked about the possibility of family portraits in the snow, before Christmas, I will have to admit that I didn’t think it was going to be in the cards!  We tentatively made plans and agreed to keep an eye on the forecasts, touching base once the weather changed from fall to winter.  Then suddenly!  Bam!  Winter was here out of what felt like nowhere!  We figured out the when and where, and made it happen.

This family was so fun!  As a person who is not a fan of being cold, I didn’t even notice the frigid air once I started clicking away.  This family photo session was hands down one of my favorites.  There is something magical about photographing a family in the snow.  I never once had to remind them to smile, relax or have fun with it.

That being said, I can’t wait for the next snow and doing this again.  Keep an eye on my website and Facebook pages when we get any accumulating snow over the winter.  I will be posting for anyone interested in Winter Family Portraits.
