Signing up for a Golden Half Hour Photo Session can be a bit of a gamble. They are offered on weekdays at the very start OR very end of the day, just as the sun is rising or falling. With that comes many complications I am happy to acknowledge, in case you are unaware of what you are taking on and appreciate an honest approach. You have to compete with traffic, work obligations, get yourself and your family looking good and fed, and get there on time before the light changes. Your session is booked and timed to allow for some shots before the sun sets (or rises) and then a few as it is happening and for the short moments after it falls (or rises). If you are late, the golden light is gone.
The benefit of these sessions is you have the potential to get some unique light in some interesting locations, for a discounted rate. If you are doing a family shoot, this time of day might be a little silly for your little buddies, BUT, that can be authentic and fun. These shoots are real and tend to reflect your life, as it is. So, if you can swing it, these photoshoots are truly special. Unlike mini shoots, it is just you at this spot. The edited images are all sent via direct download, easy as can be.
The session below is an example of a Golden Half Hour Photo Session where the family was late and we went for it. Using the street lights as my light source and letting the kids go wild for a lifestyle photo product. We were all happy with how it turned out by reflecting the location and those in it so well.
