Curious on the best season to take your family photos with Toronto Family Photographer, Tegan Monaco
The answer is simple - anytime.
Your family in this moment today can make any season the best season.
Fresh family snowfall photos are beautiful
During the Winter season, you can have the opportunity to be photographed with a fresh snowfall in a beautiful forest. While your kids are making fresh tracks with the snow, making snowballs to throw at each other and doing snow angels, I will be capturing the FUN behind the scenes. All you need to do is dress appropriately with layers, cute toques and mittens to add a pop of colour to your photos. Many of my past clients have been brave to remove their jackets for a few minutes to capture more family photos in this environment.
Spring fresh blooms
In the Spring season, the colours are so beautiful with fresh flowers and everything turning to green. The weather starts to get warmer too, and kids especially love exploring the bugs on the forest path or the colours of fresh tulips blooming. Rainy days making incredible photos with rain boots, puddle reflections and bright umbrellas too. It's actually my favourite season for my family to explore and capture the moments in between when they don't expect it.
Longer bright days in the Summer
Longer days in the summer give lots of opportunity for the timing of your session! If you're looking for that predictable sunshine, and a warmer day, taking photos in the summer would be ideal for your family. The kids will be warm enough, and can go barefoot on the grass or even in the warmer water. Selecting outfits can be easier too as you need less layers. All we would need to do is best plan for the timing on that day so it's not too hot (or too busy) in the park location you prefer. Early morning sessions or late afternoon/evening would work best for timing.
Autumn colours in the Fall
During the Fall season, you can experience beautiful scenery in the park trails with the leaves falling. I especially love the orange and brown tones of this season which accentuate the natural elements in your photos. It is an easier season to dress for as you catch a warmer day, and layer to show off multiple outfits. Your kids will especially love jumping into leaf piles and throwing them up in the air. You're never too old to have fun with this part - and it's a great photo to cherish!
