This is why I love Golden Hour...

You may have heard of Golden Hour, and you may not have. So… let me tell you bout my best friend! Golden hour is the most gorgeous light of the day and trust me when I say, you want it for your own photo shoot! When is it you ask? It’s the one hour of the day that the sun is lowest in the sky. And actually, there are 2 golden hours every day - immediately after sunrise and immediately before sunset. It’s very flattering and soft, natural, glowy light that is perfect for portraits. Sometimes people think it’s about the actual sunset in the sky, but it’s really not. It’s about the sun’s position in the sky and the light it creates.

The Totten family had their Fall photo shoot during this magic hour and you can tell just how perfect the light is in their photos! Today’s throwback blog post is going back to Fall, my favorite time of the year, during my favorite time of the day, with some of my favorite family photos from 2018! Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Avery!

So I know this session is Christmas themed...and this is March, but I chose to share this today because little Avery just celebrated his third birthday! 

I am the worst blog-procrastinator. I always rush to get the pictures edited for my clients because I'm always so excited to share them, send them off, and then neglect my poor blog. Thank you so much for those of you who stick around and check out my recent work! It's definitely my goal this year to blog more consistently and share lots more tips and photography knowledge as well as some behind the scenes fun! Let me know in the comments if there are any subjects you'd like me to cover or questions you'd love an answer to, blog style!

But before you do, take a peak at Avery and Amy's Christmas session!
