Random Thoughts on Winter & Studio Mini Sessions {Metro Detroit - Child Photographer}

Winter.  It’s in full swing here in Michigan. I used to hate it, but when you have a season that can drag on for 6+ months, you better just learn to embrace it. Two things have helped me in that regard.

  1. I got a winter hobby - snowboarding. It was a long, painful process learning this sport in my 30s, but I’m so grateful that I stuck with it, because now I have something to look forward to when the white stuff starts falling from the sky.
  2. I had a child. There are few things better than seeing your kid in the snow. I mean, snow is like the best thing ever when you’re a kid! And witnessing their excitement and joy… it’s pretty magical if you ask me. Also, having a kid forces you to get out there and play too. When’s the last time you made a snow angel? Or started a snowball fight. All of a sudden, winter doesn’t seem so bad when you get to play in the snow too.

The one thing I do NOT love about winter though, is it makes photography a lot more challenging. The days are shorter (meaning less light), and the weather is unpredictable.  Two strikes against a natural light photographer!

BUT, that’s where the studio comes in! The reason I took the plunge with the studio was to create more opportunities to shoot during the cold, winter months. So, this long-winded story about my love/hate relationship with winter is my way of announcing that I’ll be holding my first-ever STUDIO MINI SESSION in March!

Saturday, March 7th to be exact.

My studio set-up is very simple. A few nice, neutral backdrops and natural lighting…and most importantly (this is where you guys come in), an adorable subject in front of my camera. Below is an example of what you can expect to see with your studio session. If you like what you see, please check out the details at the end of this post, and then drop me a note to schedule your spot.

A big thanks to my little buddy Ben (the cutie featured in these images) for being an awesome model and for laughing at my jokes. And thanks to Ben’s mom for being cool with the candy bribery that was going on here. ;)
