Vintage Petite Sessions

April 2018 Portrait Promotion

Cherry Blossom Sessions 2018

I am often asked when is the best time to host the portrait session. There are so many factors that go into that answer. A lot of times clients are considering conveniences, like nap time and dinner. Sometimes it is a matter of summer or fall. However, for creatives it takes careful time and planning to craft the kind of work that evokes emotion. This is why we love meeting our clients at the pre-session consultation to plan the perfect time, location and scenery that will become the canvas of your memories.

The warm glow from gorgeous evening light spills over the scenery and into the lens, creating that summer feel where the sun tickles our skin. The summer and fall evening light gives us this incredible backdrop for family portraits that can instantly take us back to childhood. North Carolina farms and country roads makes that down-home feel just a little more like home to us. If this inspires you and describes your family then this is the time to commemorate that legacy for your family.

We recommend booking these golden hour sessions between June and August. It is always a great idea to book (at least) 1-2 months ahead of time to allow for our schedule as well as project time to craft your experience.

Some behind the scenes shots while my beautiful client and friend awaits the next scene!

Only in North Carolina can we have warm golden light and cold wind between takes! My sweet little subjects were so wonderful to brave the chilly air, but somehow I think the production just made it all the more fun for them.
