Winter family photography on the beach

I know that a lot of people choose to wait until spring or summer to organise a family photoshoot, but actually, you could be missing a real trick here. A winter family photography session can be the most flattering of all! The soft light can be absolutely incredible for photography, and this sort of thing makes such a huge difference to the look of the images.

I had a winter family photography session booked in with the lovely Jones family. I was so delighted when we ended up with the most gorgeous December sunshine for our shoot on the beach at Beer. Just look at that soft golden light, and what a beautiful look it gives all the images.

If you are considering organising a family photography session, then don’t feel that you have to wait for summer! Winter family photography is a really wonderful option. I’m always very flexible – if the weather forecast is wet and miserable then it’s never a problem to rearrange the session. But it’s worth putting a winter date in the diary, because you might just hit gold like this!
