Texas heat! Is there anything like it? I do love summers in Texas, but around this time of year, I’m ready for the temps to start cooling down. Partly because I’ve had enough of the heat, and partly because it is time to start scheduling holiday card photo sessions!
And since we’re in Texas, planning early is so important. You know how the weather is here. It might still be feeling like summer time in December, or it could be snowing. I’ve had many sessions that I shot in October with my clients in winter attire for the “Christmas card look,” while I’m taking the pictures in shorts and a t-shirt!
But with the Fall leaves as the backdrop, no one can tell that we were all melting because the temps still felt like summer… I’ve also had some pretty rainy seasons as well! I had one family that chose to take their photos in the rainstorm because they did not have another time when they could all be there for a session. Their umbrella pictures turned out so cute!
I do understand that it’s hard to think about holiday card photos in August, but once the weather cools down a bit, everyone starts to panic about scheduling a holiday card photo session. With Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years, and many other celebrations just around the corner, many families want to have a card to send out to friends and family during the holiday season.
So start digging through your winter wardrobe and picking out those holiday outfits that you want your family wearing for your photo session. Then all you have to do is email me to set up a time! And hopefully, by September, you won’t melt during your session even if you’re wearing a wool Christmas sweater for your holiday card photo session…
Fingers crossed for some cooler temps soon! But as we all know…if you don’t like the weather in Texas, just wait a minute because it will probably change!
Let me know how I can help you and your family! You can find details about family sessions over at Paula Mason Photography!
Until next time…
