What good is the warmth of summer without the cold of winter to give it its sweetness – John Steinbeck

If you have a wintery family session from Happy Photographer, you don’t need the warmth of summer,  because this session gives winter all the sweetness it needs!  It’s December so we thought this would be a great session to start off the winter season here at Life + Lens Blog.

Melanie: I love capturing the energy, the love and the craziness that families have about them.  This is one of my most favorite family sessions.  It’s a wintery themed family session shot at a gorgeous lake surrounded by pine trees. I really wanted to do something different with the lull that is winter for us location photographers and at the same time show families that booking a session in winter is actually pretty awesome. I, for one, adore winter time.

Rachel and Lisa:  We love seeing photography from other parts of the world, so it was amazing to see this wintery family session submitted from the Netherlands.  We love the natural connections between this family and those compiled with the added wintery feeling of the dunes (it is almost like snow!) helps us to feel like winter is on it’s way (even if its still in the 80’s here in Phoenix, AZ). Melanie really brought this winter family session to life.

Gear:

Camera: Nikon D800

Lens: Nikkor 50mm 1.8

Location: Kennemerduinen, Netherlands (dunes)
