Vibrant Spring Family Portraits | Greensboro Family Photographer

Spring in North Carolina is one of my favorite seasons, especially for family photos. As a Greensboro family photographer, one of the most popular locations for seasonal spring family portraits is at Dewberry Farms during tulip season. Nestled on a 20-acre family farm outside of Greensboro, Dewberry Farms is home to various natural features, including 60,000+ tulips, countryside views, and a private pond perfect for family photos.

The Howell’s spring family session was one for the books! On a warm Saturday afternoon in March, we spent a wonderful afternoon walking through endless rows of vibrant tulips and wholesome family fun. Their two children were the sweetest souls as they played in the fields of flowers, and “horsed around” on Piggyback. After their portraits, they enjoyed time around the farm as the warm spring sun began to set.

Below are tips from a Greensboro family photographer for your next spring family portrait session:

  1. Location – Choosing the perfect location for your family portrait session should speak to who you are as a collective family unit.
  2. Timing – For best lighting results for your family portraits, it is recommended to avoid the middle of the day, and target 2-3 hours before sunset, or 30 minutes – 2 hours after sunrise.
  3. Coordinating Outfits – For a cohesive style without looking too “matchy”, coordinate your colors, styles, and patterns. Flowy dresses give depth and movement to your photos, and full-length pants elongate all body types. Avoid busy patterns and logos as they tend to distract the focus away from you and your family.
  4. Prepare Your Family – Take some time to ensure everyone is prepared beforehand; iron clothes, and pack any necessary items such as toys or snacks that will keep them comfortable throughout the session.
  5. Have Fun – The experience of spending quality time together as a family is the most important item of all. Embrace the season your family is in and enjoy it!
