In Praise of Summer Photo Sessions {Metro Detroit Portrait Photographer}

Every year, Michigan photographers experience a huge rush of business in the fall. IT'S CHAOS! Everyone wants those gorgeous leaves in their photos, and who wouldn’t? They’re amazing, and one of the highlights of living in our state.

 But we’ve gotta speak out on behalf of fall’s less flamboyant seasonal siblings: spring and summer. If you’re thinking about booking a fall shoot – or if you ONLY book fall shoots – we offer the following thoughts for your consideration:

  1. Because spring and summer are less chaotic for us (and probably you, too – fall sports, anyone?), you have a much better selection of dates/times for your session. Not to mention we can shoot all the way into the evening because there is more daylight, and if we need to reschedule, we won’t have to push back to a date with potentially worse weather (November, I’m looking at you).
  2. Speaking of evening, that warm, glowy light that makes everyone look like a million bucks? We can’t get it in the fall. We can get pretty light, and flattering light, but there’s something about a spring/summer sunset that autumn, for all its glory, simply cannot duplicate.
  3. Warmer temps! ‘Nuff said. No more red, runny noses. Or having to bundle up like eskimos. According to, the average temp on October 23rd, at the peak of fall color, is 50 degrees. True story.
  4. The three Bs: Beaches, bonfires, and boats! We love them, and we love to capture you enjoying them. And speaking of beaches…we are always available for destination shoots and may even waive your mileage fee if I can turn the trip into a “momcation.” For real! Please book well in advance to ensure we can swing it.

Convinced? Use the contact page above to set up your lovely, warm, glowy spring/summer session – we’re now booking through August 2016!
