are you considering winter-themed family photos? Check out this super fun, winter family session in bragg creek just outside of calgary, then read on to learn how you can have your own fun family photos this winter!
Why should you get winter-themed Family photos?
- They are FUN! You can incorporate props like blankets for snuggling, sleds for the kids, and you can even throw some snow in the air for some giggles and super cute smiles & laughs!
- They are different! If you're tired of the same photos year after year, branch out and try something new! Hardly anyone goes for winter-themed photos, which will make yours definitely stand out from all the rest.
- If you live in cold weather climates, it just makes sense! Embrace ALL the seasons that Calgary gets and get your next photo session in the snow!
who winter family photos are ideal for
Families that are used to being outdoors & active, no matter the weather, will have a great time during a winter-themed photo session. Some kids just don't like snow & cold, and this will show in the photos, so if your kids aren't used to being outdoors at this time of year, I wouldn't try this. They could be grumpy and uncooperative and that doesn't make for great photos. However, if families are used to being outdoors & playing in snow, you can have LOTS of fun with these! Families with slightly older children will also have no problem: usually 4 years and up love the natural, playful element of snow. Under one years old might get too cold too fast, but as mentioned if your family regularly spends time outdoors, then it might not be an issue. Most photographers keep winter-themed photo sessions shorter, so no one gets too cold.
how to prep for fun winter family photos
Layers are SO important to create fun winter family photos, so don't be hesitant to embrace the winter vibes and wear heavier coats, toques, mittens and more. You can even bring a cozy, textured blanket to snuggle up in - it makes for adorable photos! If you think it could be helpful, you can also invest in hand & foot warmers that go right into mittens & boots to give a little bit of warmth. These are easy to find & cost-effective. Lastly, moms & dads, it's SO important that you keep your spirits high and not complain about the cold because kids will feel those vibes and act accordingly. Make it fun & playful by throwing them up in the air, kicking the snow, pulling them on the sled, and snuggling them close.
