Professionally: I am hoping it snows! I would like to get a few of these shots done because it certainly dances with my creativity and gives me something new to focus on through the winter. I wanted to conjure up some ideas for families and anyone else toying with the idea of doing a family shoot in the snow. I researched some inspiration points and I hope you will take the time to look at them and perhaps be as excited as I am. Just think -cute hats and scarves, mittens and boots and snowmen!
I think this one could actually be done in Middleburgh, on Main Street. The lights and streets are similar. Image
I thought the easiest way to share some ideas was on Pinterest: so here is the link onto the board.
This ended up being our Christmas card a few years ago. Just playing outside and of course, I turned it into a photo session. Poor kiddos.
Personally: The main reason I am attracted to this idea is because it's different. Most people don't have their family photographs done in the snow. I like different. I like challenging and I like it when I get to embrace all those things. Winter seems to be a quiet, retrospective time. I know it's busy, life is always busy. But somehow the early darkness, the wintery nights almost force me to settle in and focus. I had told a friend in conversation. " I want time to be bored." I like that idea. Nothing better to do than wish for something to do. I actually think those are healthy words. Perhaps, a little time to be bored is coming my way...I keep waiting for the weatherman to tell me when :)
