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.

In honor of the 4th of July, my boys and I thought we’d end the week with some excitement and head out to one of our favorite parks (Breckenridge Park in Richardson) for an All-American summer shoot.

 

We spoke of the respect we owe all those patriots who paved the way for our freedom.

We also spoke of the joys and simple fun it is to be an American, especially with July fireworks, summer swimming, and limitless watermelon.

 

All-in-all it was a great evening and I thought I’d share a few of my favorite images with you all!
