When is the best time of year to do Family Portraits?

When is the best time of year to do family portraits? 
That's a great question and I've got a great answer ... any season that captures how you spend time together as a family is the perfect time of year for you to have your photos taken!

Let's explore family portrait sessions during the four seasons and why each could be the best for you and your family. 

Spring is a lovely time of year. Bushes and trees that have lost their leaves begin to bloom again. The warm sunshine and fresh flowers rejuvenate and inspire us after a gray winter. Does your family like to spend time outside, maybe gardening or hiking together? If springtime brings you to your happy place - outside - then spring is the best time of year for your family portrait session. 


Summer.... oh the fun memories we make during summer. We like to play at the water parks, swim at the pool, boating at Lake Mead, camp at Mt. Charleston. Summer is a time to relax, rest, and regroup as a family. If summer is the season that brings your family together, then summer is the best time of year for your portrait session. Yes... even here in the desert! I'm game for early morning sessions at Lake Mead, sunset up on Mt. Charleston, and a few places in between. . 


Fall - who doesn't look forward to fall? The cooling temperatures, shorter days, flannel shirts and a pair of jeans, and a Pumpkin-Spice Latte - O be still my heart! With thoughts of harvesting from the garden and preparing for the long winter nights filling your heads.... this is a perfect time of year for family portraits! 

Winter in the desert means chilly mornings, bundling up with sweaters and a jacket, hot chocolate at the Lodge at Mt. Charleston after sledding in the snow,  and preparing for family get-togethers... another great time of year for family portraits!

Which season accurately describes your family? Whichever you choose, that's the best time of year for your family portrait! 

I have lots of location in mind for each season here in the valley. If you and your family live outside of Las Vegas, I love to travel!
