When should you get family photos taken?

While most people will automatically think fall is the best time, think again! The images below are evidence that summer can be just as nice. For summer lifestyle family photos, I highly recommend June! 

Why June is great for family photos 

  • More time, later sunsets
  • Warmer weather
  • Fewer bugs
  • Flowers in bloom

June is a stellar pick for family photos because the sun sets later, which means we have more wiggle room when scheduling our session. In fall, the sun can set pretty early which shortens our time and gets tricky to schedule around work schedules. June also means warmer weather, which is great for little ones. There are fewer (or no) bugs to speak of! It’s not too hot like August can get. Flowers are in bloom and a beautiful addition to your images. I am in love with the purple flowers from the Cooper’s family session. 

Cooper Family

This June, I met with the Cooper family and their adorable golden retriever, Daisy, at Scheig Garden Center in Memorial Park in Appleton, WI. Some of the best moments from their session was watching them snuggle with their beautiful 9-month-old baby boy. I also loved that they brought their dog with and we were able to capture their baby with her. I know how quickly the first year goes and how important these images will be for a lifetime. Make sure to check out highlights from their session below!
