Summer is my favorite season to capture families. Though most people tend to gravitate towards the spring due to the bright pink/white blooms or the fall due to the yellow/red foliage, I personally think summer offers more diverse landscape colors and usually guarantees a gorgeous orange sunset. Summer is also less hectic, more relaxed, and the evening light lasts longer so you can avoid squeezing your session in between school events or other obligations that tend to swarm spring and fall schedules. Summer is also comes with less sickness, layers for clothing, and flush pink faces due to colder weather. Lastly, summer allows families to choose a beach session - which I highly recommend given Boston has many beaches and it's a unique part of living in this area. The session featured in this post is from an August session at Rock Meadow Conservation in Belmont.
