This shoot was done smack in the middle of summer in July in Charlotte, North Carolina. That means it was hot and humid, and generally pretty gross out. We shot from around 8-10am. Most people steer away from summer sessions because of the heat, but you can’t tell we felt like we were in a sauna, can you? Anne Leigh still looks amazing! We never would have gotten these shots had we not shot in the summertime.
What season is best for pictures
Be sure and talk to your photographer about what season is best for your session. You might be surprised. Most of my clients think they are going to get lots of flowers in the spring and that just isn’t the case. Many flowers are not in full bloom in the spring and some only bloom for a short period of time in the spring.
NBP actually offers discounts for off-season (summer or winter) portraits.

Anneleigh is one of the coolest and most adventurous people I know. She and her mom are always jet-setting around the world to the most amazing places. Anneleigh graduated early and is taking a gap year in Hawaii! How awesome is that?
