Planning an outdoor family photo session in the winter is tricky at the best of times, but for this family session we were super fortunate to have a clear, cool winter day.
I met with this lovely family at the picturesque Reifel Bird Sanctuary, which is a great location for family photos with its beautiful meandering trails, peaceful ponds and, of course, LOTS of birds! The session was held in the afternoon, a couple hours before sunset, which is the best time of day for family photos as the light is soft and flattering. It was a cold day, but thankfully the sanctuary has a nice little warming hut that provided a much needed escape from the cold.
I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this session! It was such a pleasure hanging out with them and they gave me so many great moments to photograph.
