Spring is a season of beauty and renewal, with its vibrant colors, fresh scents, and blooming flowers. It's a time when nature comes back to life, and everything feels lighter and brighter. From the first delicate buds on the trees to the vibrant blossoms on the flowers, there is no shortage of natural beauty to admire in spring.

Preparing for a spring photoshoot can be a lot of fun and can help you create some beautiful and memorable images. Here are some tips to help you get ready:

  1. Choose a location: Every good photographer has a few hidden spots for their clients. Talk to your photographer and share your vision. Spring is all about flowers, if you are in PNW then the color and beauty of flowers-like Cherry blossoms, wildflowers, lupine fields, tulips, and daffodils around the state will blow away your mind. Think about the type of spring vibe you want for your photos and choose a location that matches that aesthetic. You could go for a flowery field, a blooming garden, a park, or a forest with trees coming back to life.

What to WEAR?

Spring is all about the colors after dark and gloomy winters. Choose outfits that match the vibe and color scheme of the location you've chosen. I love neutrals and pastels. they suit every skin tone and every season. Soft pastel colors like pink, lavender, and light green are always great options for spring. Soft, pastel colors like blush pink, lavender, and baby blue are popular choices for spring makeup and clothing. Light and airy fabrics like chiffon and cotton become the go-to choices for spring dresses and skirts.

Sharing some of the inspirational outfits that I have put together to help you decide on the color palette for your spring photoshoot.

SHOES - These are often the forgotten last element, but they can really make or break your outfits! If you can’t find shoes you love, consider going barefoot (just bring walking shoes to get from point A to point B). Women’s flats and sandals always look nice but steer away from athletic shoes and bright white sneakers. 


Pick the right time of day: The best time to take photos is usually during the golden hour - the hour after sunrise or the hour before sunset - when the light is soft and flattering. Be sure to check the weather forecast beforehand to avoid rain or harsh lighting. In fact, if you are from PNW like me, then the weather can be the real deal breaker here... even though we are in spring the weather does not stop to surprise us.


Little things that matter the most. Be sure to bring some water and snacks, especially if you're planning on being out for a while. Also, remember to bring some touch-up items like lip balm, powder, and a hairbrush.

If coming with kids for a mini photo session I always suggest my parents bring in Extra snacks and an extra set of clothing - because we all know kids have magical powers to get dirty in a split second.


The most important thing is to have fun and be yourself! Remember to relax, smile, and enjoy the beautiful spring scenery around you. Your photographer will be able to do justice to your photo shoot only if you are comfortable in your skin.
