The best time of day for outdoor photo sessions is just after sunrise and right before sunset. The light is much softer then, very flattering and magical. However, those times of day don't work very well for photo sessions with families of young children. I'd much rather have a happy baby than good light, especially since shade is so easily found. We did this little guy's session at high noon on a bright sunny day, and we made it work!! He was a happy little camper the whole time, and I'm glad we got to include his grandparents, too!
If you live in Northern Virginia and would like to have an outdoor photo session with your baby, please contact me today to schedule your session!
