How to Prepare for Your Spring Session

We’ve gone ahead and compiled several tips to ensure that the day of your session is stress free and fun for the whole family. Here we go!

 

  1. Wear layers. Spring can be finicky in the sense that you can go from frigid to over heated in a matter of minutes. We suggest wearing layers — tank top, tee shirt, cardigan, scarf, etc. That way each family member can peel off, or add, a layer as they see fit and remain comfortable throughout the session.  For more ideas of what to wear, I’ve also saved some suggestions on my Pinterest board which can be viewed here:  https://www.pinterest.com/lauraliuphoto/what-to-wear-spring/

 

  1. Location is a big deal. You better believe we’re going to take advantage of the fresh, warm air and all those bud popping up from the ground and in the trees. If you have any favorite locations, let be sure to let me know.  All spring long, I’m also out scouting the best spots for bluebonnet fields, blooming trees and other pretty spots.  We will plan the perfect spot for you!

  1. Play into the colors of the season when choosing your family’s outfits. Fresh pops of green, blue, pink and yellow are always a hit in the springtime. We recommend choosing a color theme for the whole gang, then slightly deviating from that with accessories to keep things interesting.

 

  1. Speaking of accessories: wear them! Choose jewelry, scarves, or prints that play into the spring theme. Butterflies, flowers, insects, etc, can make for some super adorable family pictures.

 

  1. Time it right. Book a session too early and you may miss out on those spring buds. Book too late and you’ve already wandered into summer territory. Keep an eye on the weather and give your photographer a call when the time is right.

 

  1. Incorporate props. Spring offers some beautiful backdrops where props blend in perfectly. For example, old wooden chairs look stunning in a sea of blooming rose bushes, and a quilted blanket is lovely on the fresh, green grass.

 

  1. Really think about your footwear. Spring can often mean a soggy ground, so flip-flops or heels are not the best choice. Instead, wear something that’s comfortable and spring appropriate, like loafers, flats or boots.

“How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun. ” – Elsie N. Brady, Leaves

It’s hard to believe that Fall is coming to a close, but nature is still putting on quite a show. I got to enjoy a sunny fall evening with this sweet family a couple days ago.  We met at Breckenridge Park in Richardson and as usual, this spot didn’t disappoint with fall color.

For now, here are some from their family session…

What do you do when the park you normally shoot in is closed due to flooding?  You find another great spot, with towering juniper trees and a field of golden grass.  And in the Sachse/Wylie area, there is never shortage of great spots to choose from. When prepping for Fall Family Sessions, it can often be tricky with the weather in Texas… nearly freezing one day but perfectly sunny and warm the next.

The Miller family was awesome though despite it all… I mean with an adorable set of twins & this handsome puppy, could this family be any cuter?  Here are a few of my favorites from their session.
