The holidays are a busy time a year for everyone and they can also be a great time for family portraits. People come into town and it is a mini-family reunion. The Williams family was in town and in Sundance for the Christmas holidays. They had rented a huge lodge in Sundance and it was a perfect backdrop for some family photography.
We started inside with my portable lighting kit to make everyone look great. We photographed the whole family and then individual units and worked our way down to individual families and grandparents with grandkids. We did at one point brave the outdoors to the the family in front of the mountains in Sundance. It was really beautiful.
I can only imagine what it is like in the spring and summer. Sundance can be pretty photogenic although they often crack down on photographers just showing up to use the property for photos. But if you are there for a wedding or in this case photographing in and around this particular lodge we didn’t run into any problems.
I can’t guarantee that I am always available. This was the day after Christmas and I had some time I could spend creating photos. If I was a smart business man I would charge a “Holiday” fee for certain parts of the year.
“Sure I can photograph on Christmas day but I charge an extra 500% markup for the service.”
