Family Photography Ottawa – Outdoor Summer Session
I often blog mostly about newborn sessions because, let’s face it, everyone wants to see photos of cute little babies! 🙂 But a lot of my work is spent outdoors photographing amazing families during the warmer months. Outdoor family photography sessions usually begin around March or April and sometimes go as late as December! But I’m all about going outdoors in Winter too for those more adventurous families. I have known this particular family for about 5 years now and I absolutely love watching their kids grow. The first time I met them, their daughter was just a little baby! It was so fun seeing the kids personalities fully formed now. They are such great and fun-loving kids!
There are so many beautiful places around the city of Ottawa to do family photos. You can turn most parks, trails, etc in a beautiful backdrop for your family photography session. Personally, I love photographing families towards the end of the day. The sun is softer and the lighting is dreamy. However, a lot of families with younger kids prefer taking photos earlier in the day. And that is totally ok! Many places offer beautiful open shaded areas that will work wonders for any photography session.
When clients book a session with me, we talk about location, best time to book (based on the light as well as their kids ages) and even suggestions on what to wear. And no, you don’t have to go buying a whole new wardrobe for your photo session. 😉 There are many simple outfits that will look beautiful for a family photo session. If I can give you one piece of advice is to avoid green! You don’t want to blend with the grass and the trees…
