By the time spring rolls around, we’re all itching to get outside and take advantage of the longer days, warmer weather, and explosion of nature coming back to life after surviving our brutal winters. Another perk that comes with spring is that it starts to provide more opportunities for outdoor photo sessions again. Here are five reasons why spring is a good time to book a photo session.
The weather is perfection. Temps in the late spring are often warm enough that outdoor sessions are perfectly comfortable, which means you won’t have to battle against beads of sweat running down your face in the blazing heat or shivering through the insufferable cold during your photo session.
Sunset timing. Spring sunsets lend themselves to outdoor sessions at a reasonable time that still allows you to feed your kids supper, get them dressed and out the door, do photos, and still be back home before bedtime. Or, if you’re like me and have a little one who goes to bed early, early evening sessions still offer beautiful low lighting a few hours before sunset, so you don’t have to wait as late as, say, summer sessions, for that prime time, which oftentimes equals cranky kids…which oftentimes equals a more stressful session.
Downtown offers options. Yes, it may be a brown muddy mess in some of the more traditional locations for outdoor sessions in the early part of spring, but downtown locations are generally free from the mud and the gunk that sits on top of the soggy grass, making spring the perfect time to book a photo session with a downtown location that you may have been wanting to try in mind
Two words: APPLE. BLOSSOMS. It’s almost impossible to live in the Fargo-Moorhead area and not hear the buzz around the apple orchards and the countdown till when they will bloom because photographers and their clients alike go nuts for good reason about the crazy beautiful scenery that the orchards provide for only a limited number of days in the spring before the Fargo wind blows the delicate flowers off the branches and they’re gone again until next spring.
No mosquitos. I don’t even need to explain this one. You know how miserable it is being eaten alive by mosquitos in the summertime.
If you’re thinking about booking a session this spring, let’s talk!
