We want family photos in the snow.

I have photographed this family for several years now. Each year includes different ideas, from climbing large trees, to getting out the motorcycles. And this year, we headed to the mountains for some fun in the snow. This mom told me that her husband loved the mountains and the snow, "It's the only place he's not too hot!" Of course I could not say no when she told me she wanted family photos in the snow! 

I love where we live, because a quick car ride and you're in the mountains, with beautiful snow. We picked a Saturday morning in November (as soon as the snow was deep enough for photos), and headed up to the Snoqualmie Pass.

What do you wear for family photos in the snow?

You might be wondering what you should wear for family photos in the snow. This family did it beautifully. They made sure they all had boots on to keep their feet warm and dry, but they wore nicer clothes, including scarves and hats. They also brought their snow coats and gloves which we removed while I photographed them. The layers allowed them to keep warm, and have an epic snowball fight. They also chose neutral, dark colors which helped them to really stand out against the white in the snow. 

If your family loves the snow, contact me about doing your family session at the Snoqualmie Pass this year. (For the record, the pass is also beautiful during the summer months too!).
