Reflections on Holiday Sessions

Another season of Holiday Photo Sessions has passed!  Although we have great fun in our Salisbury, MA studio when the weather gets cold, some of our best Holiday sessions take place outdoors in Autumn.  Capturing these great Holiday Card shots outdoors in nice weather is easy.  In the comfortable months of September and October we can find nice spots among the pines that don't show any fall color.  Against an attractive building or at the seashore there is not a hint of which season we're in as long as you dress for the part! We can decorate a tree, bring some props along or find a spot to hang a sign with your name and the year.  Although the major retailers do not generally have holiday styles on the racks in September, they are available in their online stores.  Temperatures in the 60's are comfortable in a light sweater and even a scarf.  You can add a hat for effect, and we can try a Photoshop snow overlay effect if you choose!  Trust me, it's much nicer to take a break so clients may remove a layer and cool off than it is to take a break so clients may go back to the car and turn on the heat.  It just takes a bit of planning.  When friends and family receive your gorgeous card in the mail they will never guess it was taken early in the fall.  They WILL notice that you look relaxed and comfortable, with natural skin tones, instead of looking like a shivering Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.   Another bonus is that with a quick change of a shirt or a layer, we can move toward the foliage and grab some great Autumn shots as well!  Make it one of your New Year's Resolutions to schedule your Holiday Card Session early next year!  Have a great 2016, and contact us by the end of July to lock in your date!
