Is Fog OK for Family Photos?
Elise’s Family Photos in the Fog at Discovery Park
In a nutshell, YES! If you schedule your family photos during the fall in the PWN, there are several weather conditions you might have to contend with. Overcast days, rain, and in this instance, fog! A foggy day definitely sets a certain tone. It is a bit moody. I like the way it separates the subject a bit from the background. It is like they are in a little world of their own. As a PNW photographer I try to embrace the weather we have. It can’t always be done, but sometimes it works out perfectly.
I love photographing Elise’s family because her goal is the same as mine. Get that one smiling photo that she can use on her Christmas card and send to traditional family members, and then spend the rest of the session documenting their dynamics, their love. They are relaxed and not trying to force anything. Dream clients, really. Love these people. Love my job.
