Family Session { Union, Ohio Family Photographer }

Sessions in the late autumn, early winter are very hard to do outside. The cold weather and short amount of great daylight limit you when you try to get those perfect family shots. It’s just the nature of the beast.  Yes, I have a studio but I prefer on location shoots for families if I can make it happen. I’m willing to try it at least once, anyway.

The obstacles we have to overcome are many, but what’s wrong with a little challenge? It keeps you on your toes. Sunset is at 5:30pm-ish and who’s really off work and ready by that time? First thing in the morning offers great light so 8am it is. Too bad that cold temperatures get to ya really quick and before long we have runny noses and red cheeks. We don’t want the dreaded winter coats in the pictures so the only way to avoid that is to take them off and freeze for the moment. And don’t exhale….we don’t want the fog. Throw in a lil’ man who really doesn’t appreciate getting up early to run around outside without a coat to get pictures taken….and we’ve got the makings of a great family photo shoot. Hahaha!

It’s a good thing he’s cute. :) Take 2 will be coming up shortly but here’s a few I managed to capture before the meltdown.
