1. Keep tracking the weather

Those white winter days after a lot of snowfall can result in some seriously gorgeous photographs. Booking two months out probably won’t work, and you’ll instead want to book on shorter notice.

2. Really play up the winter accessories when planning outfits

3. Plan the day out so that nobody gets fussy or too cold

A bribe of hot chocolate after the session goes a long way. Also, make sure that everyone’s dressed warmly..

4. Don’t be afraid to have fun in that snow

Snowball fights? Snowman building? Angels? The possibilities are endless, and this should be all about having fun.

5. Choose colors and prints that pop

An all-white background is lovely, but having that pop of red or that flash of gingham can really make for a gorgeous photograph.

6. Pack the necessities

Noses tend to run in the cold, and glasses can fog up. Bring tissues, hand-warming packs, clean clothes, and hot beverages to keep everyone perky throughout the shoot.

7. Because it can be freezing

Note that a shorter session may be in order. Make the most of your photos by using every single second to the max, especially at the beginning of the session when everyone’s still warm, and spirits are particularly high.
