Leah & The Golden Hour

I stole Leah away during the golden hour on her 16th birthday.  She’s our babysitter for our kids and she’s amazing!  She was having her birthday party that night at 7:30.  I told her we’d only be shooting for 15-20 minutes and the timing was pretty important.  I explained that I didn’t want to start shooting before 6:45 because the sun would be “too hot,” but I promised to have her home in time for her party.  We made it just in time.  She walked in the door at 7:15.

When I book my clients, I usually get the question “isn’t that going to be too late?”  I LOVE to shoot until the sun dips below the horizon. It may sound corny, but that’s when the magic happens.  Yep, that’s me CORNY!  I love the glow during the last hour before the sun goes down.  That’s why it’s called the golden hour.  Timing is so important when it comes to a session. I will follow the sun just so I get it going behind the hillside or behind the trees.  Give me all the glow!
