Good ~ Bright, Sunny Days
- We have outdoor portrait areas where foliage provides canopies of shade throughout the day.
- Early morning or late evening creates the best opportunity for diffused light.
- Ideal natural light for outdoor portrait sessions on a sunny day occurs in two 45 minute windows: one just after sunrise and one just before sunset.

Better ~ Cloudy, Overcast Days
- Clouds can provide both shade, and diffused light, which are great for outdoor & portrait photography.
- Overcast days enable us to work almost anywhere outside, any time of the day with some consideration for open sky.

Best ~ Overcast, Drizzle, Rain Showers, Misty Rain
- These days provide your best opportunity for dynamic light, dramatic skies and vibrant foliage.
- Many of our outdoor areas have overhead canopies of trees to keep you dry through short showers and misty rains.
- When the weather looks questionable, it could be the perfect day for your outdoor photography sessions!
- Should the weather take a turn for the worse, we will complete the indoor portion of the session and reschedule the outdoor session.
