It’s coming up to that time of year folks – The best time for environmental family photography within Vancouver ! – Glorious late afternoon, or if you’re adventurous – Early morning light, that means you don’t have to go out at 9.00p.m to get the best light of the day. Beautiful fall colours, that add so much punch, contrast and saturation to provide a magnificent backdrop to your family images. Plus, we don’t have to be so cautious with our locations because of the harsh summer sun and the unwanted issues that this hard light can cause – Like deep shadows, squinting, sweating etc. We at Harley Cross Photography always manage to work with the light we have and still produce great wall art for our clients, but our options are opened up a lot more in the fall. Take a look at our portfolio and it becomes easy to spot the great Fall in Vancouver portraits.
We always say a lot of our job is as a Psychologist in that we have to coach the best out of our subjects no matter what mood they are in. Nobody wants a grumpy face in their Family Photographs. Well this becomes a lot easier in the Fall too, as the kids are back at school and life becomes a little more normal. Therefore everyone becomes a little more relaxed and this shows when we work with clients on there Fall family portraits in Vancouver.
All of the above really matters when producing fine art portraits. These family images will hang on your walls for many years and bring you joy with each look. Families go to a lot of trouble in choosing their portrait Photographer and ensuring everything is just right for the day. So, please make sure you choose the best Photographer you can and one who’s work you love. We often find people think with their wallets first and then, unfortunately we get a call saying they spent all this precious time organizing everyone for the big day and buying new clothes, having hair and make up done etc. Only to be very disappointed with the end results. They then wish they had just spent the extra investment in the first place and chose the possibly more costly, but right Portrait Photography studio to take their family photos. We have had a lot of calls like this lately, where their families have been burned by a part time and frankly poor quality, cheap Photographer, who was just looking to practice with his, or her new camera.
So, if you see someone offering everything on a disc, for just a couple hundred dollars, Please RUN! They most certainly are not doing this as a full time business and if they are, they will not be around for long at all.
It is very easy to throw a website up nowadays and all of a sudden you are a Pro Photographer. Well, folks, I’m sure you know it ain’t that easy, in the real world. It takes many thousands of hours to produce quality portraits that people will love.
