People often ask me what time of day is the best for photography. My feeling is that is varies throughout the time of year. In the late fall/winter, I am completely comfortable shooting any time of the day because the sun never goes directly overhead. The days are shorter and so a mid-afternoon session is required to have enough light. In the late spring/summer months the mid-day light is quite harsh and undesirable. In that case I would suggest early morning or later afternoon light. The closer you get to sunrise or sunset, the more magical and soft the lighting becomes. This session was done later in the day close to sunset which gave us a really beautiful light quality. I love the photos we took and here are my selects.
It was so fun to photograph my great friend and her beautiful family in San Diego. Not only was the shoot to document her little girl’s second birthday, but she and her husband were getting ready to celebrate their 10 year wedding anniversary. To capture this special time, we started at their home and then drove to the site of their wedding so they could show their children where they were married. So many happy pictures captured, here are just a few:
