There is nothing quite like beautiful fall scenery, I get that. So from January to March, what do you for winter photo sessions when everything is dead and the weather is a bit colder? You get creative and venture into the many other areas that are perfect for sessions!
Locations for winter don’t have to look dreary in your sessions. Some of my favorite portraits have come from a time that many deem not ‘photo worthy’. But I promise they can be just as great! During this time, it’s the perfect time to look for more urban locations.
If you want to add a bit of color to your session, I love finding murals that bring this to the session. You really never know what you may be able to find. And I bet your photographer has a recommendation for a few if you let them know this is what you are interested in!
This is the epitome of ‘urban’ in my eyes and I love it for a more industrial-styled session! These also often offer more privacy in case you don’t feel as comfortable with a session in public.
One of my favorite things about downtown sessions is being able to show off the town you live in. Whether it is a big city or a small town square, these always provide beautiful photos and wonderful memories.
I loved this session for many reasons, but being able to capture someone like Keisha was definitely at the top of my list. She is fierce, fun, and was all for the ideas I threw at her. Shooting at a parking garage for your headshots may not seem like the ideal backdrop, but take a look at her session to see why it’s perfect.
The light during her session was a golden hour dream and was perfect for adding that bit of whimsy to her winter session. Even in the dreariness of winter, this can still be achieved!
Want to get on my books for winter/early spring? Book a family session here! It could even get you ahead for those family photos you’ll need for Christmas cards at the end of the year.
