Why Photographers Want to Schedule Early and Late On Location Sessions

As a photographer, I can work with less than ideal light, absolutely awful light, or even no light at all. I can use studio lighting and modifiers to enhance or add light. I can pose you so that midday sun doesn't affect the quality of the portrait. However, the look of early morning and evening light is so beautiful. Skin glows as if it is lit from within. The sun's light seems to caress hair. Photographers call the hour after sunrise and the hour before sunset the "Golden Hour" because the sun's light is truly golden.

If you'd like to be sure your on location session has beautiful light, ask about scheduling an early morning or evening session. During the summer, I'm recommending starting sessions between the hours of 6:30 am and 9:00 am or 5:30 pm and 8:00 pm to take advantage of the best light.

Of course, if you can't book your session during those times, I still will be absolutely thrilled to create some beautiful images for you, either in studio or on location!
