So many people tell me “anywhere but Alpine Groves, it’s so overdone” but I personally can’t get enough of it! It is such a beautiful location with the morning sun coming through the trees. It’s a great place to consider if you have young children and need a morning time photography session since Alpine Groves offers such a variety of spaces and no danger of a little one running into the street!
I’m often asked what the best time of day is for family pictures. Well the best time of day depends on the type of images you want. If you want the soft light of sunset then an hour before sunset is when we would meet, but if you have little kids – that can be one of the worst times of day for them! The best time of day is the time of day that your little people will be happy! Grumpy little ones can make mom and dad stress out and that’s not the family picture you most likely had in mind! That’s why I love having a few parks that we can use to do morning sessions as that is often the best time of day for little ones – just after their morning nap! Don’t worry – you will have plenty of time for a beach sunset session as they get bigger 🙂 I promise!
As kids get older – we often have to work around sports schedules so that’s another great reason to consider a morning family picture session 🙂
Here is my lovely sister- n- law and her family that I bribed into taking my family pictures in exchange for her family pictures during their visit at Thanksgiving (Yes, I’m way behind on blogging!….I’ll post those here soon).
