Cure cabin fever with a spring photo shoot
In most parts of the continental United States, different seasons bring different temperatures, different moods, and different auras in the air. Wintertime, for example, can be a great deal of fun with all the skiing and sledding opportunities in some parts of the country- which even if you don’t live close to, you can make a vacation out of these opportunities. But while the New Year on January 1st is the traditional time to “turn over a new leaf,” the emergence of spring brings about the same sort of feeling. Furthermore, springtime doesn’t exactly mark the start of a new year, but it does mark the start of a time of year that lends itself to most of the fun activities we all enjoy. And as a bonus, that just happens to mean it’s a great opportunity to set up a spring photo shoot for your little ones- in multiple different ways!
Spring photo shoots can announce the beginning of spring with authority
Perhaps there’s no better way to deliver a full-throated announcement to the world that spring has arrived than with a photo of your little one that sends that message better than words can. Positioning your smiling child in front of a lake or beach can convey the idea that it’s officially time to dress like it’s summer, and do traditional summer things. Of course, these pictures will last forever, but in the days and weeks after you share them with your friends and relatives, the goal is to make a visual impression that the time for fun outdoor activities has arrived. Which in many parts of the United States, it has!
Spring photoshoots are an annual measuring stick
Some children like to mark their growth on the wall with a pencil, and this is the photogenic way of accomplishing the same thing. Rather than dressing your child up in specific holiday attire, you can dress your child up in nice clothing so that the focus is on the person, not necessarily a costume or seasonal clothing. Yes, of course, with Christmas cards or Halloween photos you send to your family and friends, your child will draw the obligatory, “Wow, look at how much he or she has grown!” reactions- but that will take a second or two of work for whoever is viewing the picture. A nice photo of your young one just enjoying the springtime outside will ensure that your child is the focal point of the photo- and over time, you’ll have your own growth chart of your child.
Easter photoshoots are always great, too
If your family celebrates Easter, then an Easter-themed spring photo shoot can make for a great page on a scrapbook, too. Whether you dress your child up as an Easter bunny, or simply take pictures of your child hunting for Easter eggs, you’ll have a terrific photo to show your future grandkids one day. And of course, it’s an excellent way to get your friends and relatives into the holiday spirit! (link: https://www.tumblestonphotography.com/bunny-mini-sessions/)
