5 Reasons to take Family Portraits this Summer, Brooklyn, New York

While there’s no bad time of year to invest in family photography, summer is often hailed as the ideal season to capture memories with your loved ones. There are plenty of reasons why photographers tend to book up so quickly this time of year. Here are a few ways you’ll benefit from scheduling a session now.

Why Schedule Family Photography in the Summer

1. Beautiful Green Locationsfamily photography Brooklyn

During the summer, foliage is lush and flowers are in bloom. Take advantage of nature at its finest by choosing from an array of scenic backdrops.

For instance, Central Park and Prospect Park have some stunning spots. As an added bonus, you can enjoy a day out with the family once the photoshoot is complete.

2. Safety During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Put your family’s safety first by having everyone wear masks before and after the appointment. The photographer will maintain a safe distance of at least six feet, as advised by the CDC.

3. Predictable Weather

While it’s always possible you’ll encounter rain, the warm temperatures are very conducive to sporting that light and flowy sundress. Review the forecast with the photographer to pick a date that will likely see clear weather.

4. Lighter Schedules

5. Longer Days

Longer periods of sunlight allow for greater flexibility when timing photoshoots. For example, if your teen works weekends and can’t get off until the afternoon, you might still be able to schedule a session with plenty of daylight to spare since the sun sets after 8. Plus, you won’t have to rush as much to hit the “golden hour,” the time before sunset when sunlight is warm and soft.
