Here is a unpopular opinion...spring is THE best time for a outdoor family photo session! Parents usually start thinking about family photos around Fall which is amazing in its own right. I do love fall foliage and its definitely a gorgeous season to capture a family yet there is something magical about Spring. Why you ask? Keep reading and I'll explain why spring family memories might be the best experience for your family instead of the Fall. Maybe you'll even join team SPRING!
My top reason? The best part of Spring family photo sessions is that you can expect way fewer crowds than in Fall. I love getting to a location and no one else is there! This does not happen often in the fall. Literally I've shown up to location and there will be crowds of people trying to get photos taken. The spring is a hidden gem for this reason, not everyone is ready for family memories when the weather starts to get warm. That means that all those gorgeous locations will be beyond enjoyable and fun. Is your crew shy and not interested in being the center of attention? Definitely go with a Spring session. Even better do the session on a weeknight!
Next reason? Life is SOOOO busy in the fall. Between school starting, homecoming, fall sports, the holidays....everyone's schedule is PACKED! Spring just tends to be less busy. Its easier to get a session on your schedule and keep it there! Take something off your to do list in the Fall and plan your session in the spring!
What else? Spring colors are to DIE FOR! Flowers are in bloom and grass is the most perfect shade of green! Pictures in the spring just scream happy happy joy joy! There are so many locations with beautiful gardens or even entire fields of wildflowers. You can't find that in the fall.
Lastly there is the weather! Wedged right between cold winters and brutally hot summers of Atlanta is gorgeous spring! The cold months are long & we are stuck indoors. By the time those last weeks of Winter rolling in, we are CRAVING time with Mother Nature. The excitement that comes with Spring is something! Those happy mood translates into family fun moments.
I have a limited mini sessions planned this spring. If your crew needs more than 15-20 minutes to warm up for pictures or you just like more variety in your gallery consider a petite or full session. Not sure? Send me a message and we can chat.
