I love taking pictures, and winter kind of puts a hold on my photographing large groups, as currently I do not have a studio. BUUUUUUUUUUT to “solve” that problem in the winter I will be offering a series of mini … Continue reading
There’s one thing I’m learning about running a photography business, it’s that the weather is never accurate, but holds a key to the success of a session. When this family and I set the date for this session we had no clue how hot it was going to be. Hot was an understatement. A few days before a session I’ll check the weather. I don’t hold it very accurate because I’ve had sessions where it’s pouring at my house but clear beautiful skies where I’m photographing. But one thing I’m learning to consider is temperature and THEN look at the predicted humidity. This session it was probably “only” 90*……….. but the humidity was high. Did I mention it was about 5 or 6 pm?! Still hot!!
I think what I should do when it’s this hot is to plan family sessions to have 30 minutes of “formal” pictures then 30 minutes of swimming, water guns, and hoses for the next portion of the session in order to cool off. How fun would that be! Haha!
Thankfully they were good sports about it, and their session turned out so well. We met at one of my favorite places, the Gwynedd Wildlife Preserve in Montgomery County, specifically the mill. It offers a pretty good shade in both the morning and evening. You can see the love that big brother has for his twin sisters. He’s a terrific big brother and is going to be such a good protector of those two little ladies. And those two little ladies give my Tommy a run for his money on the cutest cheeks contest! If they were all to be entered he’d have some fierce competition!
Thanks again M family! It was a pleasure meeting you and I hope to see you again soon!

Also with each family session that takes place from August- November is included a free holiday card template. You can use my printer, ProDPI or use the file at your own printer.
