Top Perth Locations for Spring Family photos
It's hard to believe we are already in June! In only a couple of months, the landscape will be covered in wildflowers. Spring here in Perth is really short - usually only 2-3 weeks long. And then it starts to get hot and dry again. Because of this, family portrait sessions in Spring book out well in advance. If you are looking for family photos this spring, please book with your favourite photographer asap to avoid missing out.
In my opinion, spring is one of the best season to have family photos taken:
- The landsacape is so colourful and vibrant!
- The temperature is on our side. The weather is not too hot or cold making it a perfect time to enjoy the outdoors during your family photoshoot.
- The sun sets early (compared to summer) and it is when we shoot so it is perfect for family photo with little kids.
