Hard to believe summer is on it’s way out already! My September availablility has been released on and the dates are booking quickly!  Now I am just hoping that the weather will co-operate as I won’t have space for re-scheduled appointments.  Anyone wanting to get in for outdoor family portraits shoould keep in mind that evenings are best, usually around 6-6:30 pm, provided it is a clear day. If is is overcast, but not darkly so, any time of day is okay. 

People often ask me what to wear for these types of session.  I cannot stress enough how important wardrobe choice is in making a beautiful family portrait.  Avoid plaids, stripes/patterns and logos, as usual and try to aim for some harmony. While it is not always necessary to completely match everyone’s outfits, there should be a common colour throughout. In the fall, brown is a nice colour to build around, and it is available abundantly in the stores this season. There are some family images on that illustrate this point under ‘Love.’
