4 REASONS WHY SUMMER IS THE BEST TIME FOR FAMILY PORTRAITS

A lot of families will wait until the Fall to do their family photos. But just because that’s the norm, doesn’t mean there isn’t a better time. In fact, family photo sessions in the summer months have many benefits as well.


1. THINGS ARE A LOT LESS HECTIC

The summer is so much more relaxed than any other season. Once the kids start school in the fall, parents find themselves once again over-committed to activities. Sports start up again, school meetings, and getting ready for more things indoors. Parents tend to get overwhelmed during the fall months, which is why summer works so well. Aside from July 4th and Father’s Day, there aren’t any major holidays. You can enjoy a slower pace, longer days, and actual sunshine.


2. SCHEDULES ARE A LOT MORE OPEN

Sure, families travel more during the summer, but in the weeks when they’re not traveling, the weekends tend to be pretty open. So if you get your family pictures done in July or August, you’re not only beating the crowds but also will probably have your pick of weekend dates.


3. EVERYONE IS TANNED

There’s a reason why fake tanning is such a huge industry - everyone looks better with a healthy summer glow. And guess what? In the summer, you and your children will be naturally tanned just from being outside! This looks amazing in photographs. So schedule your photoshoot right after a vacation.


4. IT FEELS SO GOOD TO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT IN THE FALL

It feels like every fall things get more and more hectic. Holidays tend to be close together, with long to-do lists, and seemingly no time to do anything with all the family obligations. Being able to get one of these important to-do items off your list before fall even starts is the best feeling! This means more time to devote to getting everyone else done, not waiting until the last minute, and sparing yourself a whole lot of stress during a time when you’re supposed to enjoy being with your family.
