What is the Best time of Day for an Outdoor Family Photoshoot? | Long Island Family Photographer



WHAT’S THE BEST TIME OF DAY FOR A FAMILY PHOTO SHOOT?

Long Island is full of beautiful beaches and landscapes. People travel from all over to enjoy what we have to offer. There are certain times of day that are much better than others to have your family photos taken. So, when’s the best time of day?


GOLDEN HOUR IS THE BEST TIME OF DAY FOR PHOTOS

That's the time of day right before sunset where the light is gorgeous and makes everyone and everything look good. I LOVE to schedule outdoor sessions at Golden Hour. The sun is lower in the sky and less harsh for shadows so everything looks dreamy. Families with little ones, I recommend a late nap and a snack/dinner before the session so they’re in the best mood possible. It can be hard to stay up late if you're not used to it.


IF GOLDEN HOUR DOESN'T WORK THE EARLY MORNINGS AMAZING

Another great time of day is a few hours after sunrise. The sun is in a similar position as it is with the sunset where the light is not coming from up above you. Light and shadows are soft and oh so beautiful. Another bonus is that kids are usually in a great mood in the morning! Another great reason to love morning sessions!
