Summer sunset session in California -Toronto Family Photographer

March 11, 2020

Travelling to California last year and photographing this beautiful family was definitely a highlight last year as a Toronto Family Photographer. Their girls were so relaxed and playful to photograph while exploring the open fields with mom and dad. It wasn’t the warmest day so we improvised and cuddled a lot to keep warm – something I always recommend to family – snuggle and cuddle for authentic connection.


Family sessions are scheduled Monday through Thursday with some limited weekend openings and start one hour and a half before sunset. Outdoor sessions take place May until mid October and indoors in our studio during the cold Toronto winter months. If your partner works and can’t take time off work, we recommend booking during the summer months when the days are longer. If you have little ones with early bed times, scheduling a session in the Fall at 4:00pm means you can still get this beautiful golden light.


Styling is a big part of creating a beautiful photo that you’ll want to hang on your walls – after all, your photos are meant to be printed and displayed in your homes. We work with you weeks before your session to put together your family’s attire. Booking a session with us means you also get access to our client closet. We have a variety of items for boys and girls as well as stunning dresses for moms that are flattering to every body type. You can find some of the items from our client closet here.

Here are more blog posts in different locations in Toronto both outdoors and in-studio showing why you should hire a photographer to capture your beautiful family.
