Spring: the time of budding blooms, green grass, and the return of warmth…not to mention finals and papers and due dates, oh my! I get it. I really do! It is a crazy time of year to get through, made even harder knowing you are so close to the finish line.
There is one thing, though, that I think would be totally worth setting aside an afternoon. You guessed it! Spring portraits! Here is a list of reasons why, even if you had a session last summer or fall, that now is the perfect time to celebrate (even if you still have a bit left to do before the actual party!) with a fresh portrait session this Spring.
Is it a coincidence that blooms were the first thing I mentioned in the article? Nope! There is something so perfect about those fresh, soft pastels that flatter every skin tone and lend such effortless beauty to portraits. We only get this chance a few weeks out of the year, and after all, who says “new beginning” better than Mother Nature?
Ok, what? I know you’re thinking that sunlight is hardly unique to Spring! Girl, trust me here. This time of year is different. There is a crispness when it’s clear, and the light glowing through foggy haze is downright dreamy. Plus, the sun sets so much earlier that we get to experience that sunset glow in locations that are closed by summer sunset times! And, ok, I might be referencing number 1 again here, but blooms at sunset? Yes please!
3. DESTINATION LOCATIONS
Want to go to the beach? LET’S GO! Want to hike in Yosemite? LACING UP MY BOOTS! Early Spring is the time of year, between the winter weather and the hustle and bustle of wedding season, where schedules and destination locations have enough wiggle room for adventure! So if you are craving something absolutely unique, something no one else in your class has, now is the time to plan it!
I hear some of you are getting exciting news in the mail! CONGRATS! Wouldn’t it be fun to be able to personalize your grad announcements to include your plans for the fall? After all, you didn’t work this hard to stop now! I offer some gorgeous print options to not only show off your portraits, but also share some good news with your friends and family! You can choose to order full size announcements or inserts to add to the announcements ordered through your school. Throw in a few prints of your favorite images, and you’ll be mailing out something as exciting as that acceptance letter!
5. TREAT YOSELF
