Have you thought about doing a winter session? What? You haven't? Is that because you are a bit like me? Minnesota Winters can (and almost are) long and cold and honestly, I'd rather stay inside, curled up by a fire drinking a hot cup of something then venture out into the vast frozen tundra.
But I am here to tell you why you maybe should entertain the idea of a family, senior or couples session ♥
You get to utilize some beautiful backdrops! White, gray, evergreens, snow, hoar frost - the possibilities are great for clean, breath-taking winter artistry. Winter sessions create some beautiful black and white photos too!
Your photos will be unique! Many people wait until it is Summer or Fall. Yours will have a magical and cozy feeling to them!
Speaking of cozy: this is a great opportunity to incorporate a warm blanket, a cute scarf, adorable mittens, a fun hat, hot cocoa and lots of layers and textures. If it is a couples or family session, we can get nice and close and cuddle up.
You have your pick of days. Because of less demand, there are more time slots available. Summers are short in Minnesota so nearly every weekend is scheduled to the gills with BBQ's, cabin and camping get-a-ways, fishing and just staying home doing yard work! Also, Once the summers have winded down, October will typically bring nice temps with golden sun and warm leaf color...but the calendar fills up very quickly. Basically, scheduling in the winter means you get a fast pass to the front of the line.

But - if you're telling me I am out of my gourd for suggesting such a thing, you could be right. It is pretty cold, although, sometimes a 15° day feels pretty darn good! Cancelling or postponing due to wretched cold or inclement weather is a very real possibility. I mean...honestly...sometimes I don't even want to walk to the mailbox! Also, a Winter session in Minnesota might not allow you to rock that cute dress - but stay tuned because next up is prepping for your session and ideas on what to wear so you can rock it! ----> You find your fashion guide HERE <----
