The summer isn't the ideal time for photos if you are one to sweat (only kidding, of course). There is something special about all seasons for photos. Spring is great for florals, Summer is great for greens, Fall is a gorgeous time for the golden hour and Winter is a great time for those holiday sessions. Whatever time of year you decide to take photos, it's the love in front of the camera that is being captured. But, I will say, if your session is in the summer (or sometimes the fall and spring in Virginia), it is usually humid, and there is a 100% chance that I will be behind the lens covered in sweat (it's hard work being a photographer, lol).
Here are some photos from a family photo session at Appomattox Manor in Hopewell, Virginia:
