Why Spring is the PERFECT time for family photos


As the snow melts away and nature awakens from its winter slumber. Spring emerges as a golden opportunity for capturing cherished family moments. So why is Spring the most underrated time of year for family photos? Here are 5 compelling reasons why the spring season might just be the most underrated yet opportune time to schedule your family photo session.

1. It’s Not Yet Busy Season

Spring marks the calm before the storm in the world of family photography. Photographers aren’t yet inundated with bookings, offering more flexibility in scheduling sessions. This means shorter turnaround times for getting your photos back! Ensuring you can cherish those precious moments sooner rather than later. Moreover, families aren’t yet caught up in the whirlwind of summer vacations, camping trips, or the chaos of back-to-school preparations. Thus making it easier to carve out time for a relaxed and enjoyable photoshoot experience.

2. Early Evening Sunsets

The golden hour, that magical time before sunset, casts a warm glow that enhances the beauty of family portraits. In spring, the sun sets earlier in the evening compared to the prolonged summer evenings. Therefore, sparing young children from having to stay up past their bedtime for those perfect shots. This means less fatigue and more natural smiles, resulting in stunning photos that effortlessly capture the essence of your family bond.

3. Blooms are Blooming!

Cherrie Blossom Trees, Yes Please! Springtime heralds the arrival of vibrant blooms on apple and cherry blossom trees, painting the landscape with hues of pink and white. These natural backdrops serve as enchanting settings for family photos, adding a touch of whimsy and romance to your portraits. Imagine a canopy of delicate cherry blossoms as the backdrop for your family photos. It’s a scene straight out of a fairytale, and the perfect backdrop for creating timeless memories with your loved ones.

4. Pleasant Temperatures

Unlike the sweltering heat of summer, spring offers mild and comfortable temperatures that are conducive to outdoor photoshoots. There’s no need to worry about sweaty brows or discomfort from the scorching sun. Instead, you can bask in the gentle warmth of spring, allowing for a relaxed and enjoyable experience for the entire family. Plus, you won’t have to contend with squinting eyes or harsh shadows caused by the intense midday sun, ensuring your photos turn out picture-perfect.

5. Check It Off Your To-Do List Early

By scheduling your family photoshoot in spring, you can check this important task off your to-do list early in the year. This means you can enjoy the rest of the summer and fall without the looming pressure of needing to organize a photoshoot amidst the chaos of busy schedules and competing priorities. You can relax and savor those precious moments in the busier seasons, knowing that you’ve already captured beautiful memories to cherish for years to come.

Spring is not just a season of renewal and growth. It’s also the perfect time to capture the magic of family bonds through heartfelt portraits. So why wait? With its blooming flowers, early sunsets, and pleasant temperatures, spring offers an idyllic backdrop for creating timeless family photos that you’ll treasure forever.
