I LOVE winter. It is my absolute favourite time of year for family photos for so many reasons.
Yes, it can be a bit tricky finding gaps between the rain and wind squalls to get outdoors, but when it all comes together, the winter light is just soooo beautiful for portraits. These photos were literally taken between rain fronts – we were hiding in the car just two minutes before the first photo below was taken.
And we only just made it through the shoot before the next down pour . (There’s nothing like the pressure of grey clouds heading my way to get the shots taken efficiently!) It really is worth persisting with the weather to get this dreamy soft light.
I especially enjoy capturing the personalities of kids and the dynamics between siblings, like with these two little munchkins. It’s not hard to see how much they adore each other!
And they have a new fan here too!
