Helpful Tips for Preparing for Your Winter Session

It's Winter and it's cold. All you want to do is stay home, snuggled under the blankets, eating popcorn and watching movies. Nothing wrong with that hey? But when it comes to booking your family photo session, some people shy away from winter sessions because, well, it's COLD! 

But winter sessions make for some prime photo opportunities, so don't write off the BRRRR months just yet! DSC_0254jpg

1. Keep tracking the weather. Those icy cold winter days after a lot of rain can result in some seriously gorgeous photographs. Booking two months out probably won't work so you'll instead want to book on a shorter notice. 

2. Really play up the winter accessories when planning outfits. Think cozy knit scarves, colorful coats, adorable boots, mittens and more.  

3. Plan the day out so that nobody gets fussy or too cold. A bribe of hot chocolate after the session goes a long way. Also make sure that everyone's dressed warmly.    

4. Choose colors and prints that pop. Having that pop of red or orange on a cold winter day can really make for a gorgeous photograph. Tafelberg Morne 1jpg

5. Pack the necessities. Noses tend to run in the cold, and glasses can fog up. Bring tissues, hand-warming packs, clean clothes and hot beverages to keep everyone perky throughout the shoot.  

6. Because it can be really cold, note that a shorter session may be in order. Make the most of your photos by using every single second to the max, especially at the beginning of the session when everyone's still warm and spirits are particularly high.
