What is the best time of day for family photos?

Golden hour (the hour or two after sunrise or before sunset) is the best time of day for outdoor natural light photos. The soft golden glow as the sun sinks lower in the sky is very flattering! I typically schedule my photoshoots to begin about 1.5-2 hours before sunset so that the sun is just dipping below the tree line as we’re wrapping up our photos. If you have young kids with early bedtimes, don’t fret! Sunset time is earliest in the fall, so an outdoor golden hour photoshoot is possible for every family as long as you plan in advance.
