Spring is the perfect time to capture the beauty of family gatherings amidst Northern Michigan’s blooming landscapes. Recently, I had the joy of photographing a family session on Old Mission Peninsula on the beach and then we explored near the stunning spring blossoms.

As Father’s Day approaches, now is the ideal time to book your own family session to create lasting memories.

Tips for Planning Your Family Session:

  1. Choose the Right Time: Early morning or late afternoon provides the best lighting and comfortable temperatures.
  2. Coordinate Outfits: Opt for complementary colors that blend with the natural surroundings.
  3. Bring Props: Personal items like a family heirloom or a favorite book can add a unique touch to your photos.
  4. Keep it Fun: Candid moments often make the best photos, so encourage laughter and playfulness.
