In February while visiting my brother in the Pacific Northwest, a monstrous snowstorm struck! With everyone snowed in, all roads blocked we decided to take a walk into the snow! My daughters & their cousin really were excited to dress up in blue gowns and freeze in the snow! Usually in the past I have done "Winter Magic" Photo Sessions in the Studio, however as the girls were dressing to play "snow princess" I realized I had 3 winter capes lined with faux fur! Sure to be a very useful and warm prop to photograph in the middle of a blizzard! I don't know how I could offer "snowstorm" photo sessions, since when a snowstorm hits, its very difficult to just "run out into the snow" for photographs since all the roads are blocked!
Here is some of the winter magic. I should say, this was quite cold to photograph!
I should point out that these images were not Photoshopped, beyond basic lighting/exposure adjustments and that all the snow you see in these photographs is real! (I love to Photoshop, but its quite fun to have the actual scene in real life be full of actual snow instead of having to use faux or a backdrop like I have done in the past for Winter Portraits!)
