Can I just begin this post by saying… I love summer. Even though I complain during the super high humidity, I love it. And I know I’m going to miss it when the weather starts cooling down. One of the main things I love about it is the light. It’s light until 8:30 PM right now and it’s glorious. The lighting is also super yummy right around 5-6 PM… which means PERFECT time for photo shoots!
During our last heat wave, I headed to a friend’s house to do photos of her family. She happened to be the winner of one of my first raffles so I was really excited to do the pictures! Let me just tell you how glorious her backyard was. Not only was it huge, but she had a beautiful old wooden fence and it was surrounded by weeping willows. The sunlight was more perfect than anything I could have hoped for and it just blanketed the backyard with golden light. Not only that, they had adirondack chairs for the whole family. It was quintessential New England. Not too mention the family. They were perfect. I loved every second of photographing them. And I hope you enjoy the outcome!
