Family Photography at Dusk

Dusk is a time of day often neglected by photographers.  The poor light tends to cause folk of our ilk to shy away in favour of brighter times, especially considering dusk is shortly after the “golden hour” with it’s beautiful warming rays.  However, dusk can be a lovely time to shoot.

The low light of dusk creates images reminiscent of yesteryear, with it’s last filtered rays of sunshine…  It is exceptionally moody, creating romance and intrigue.  Especially during the late Autumn or early Winter when rosy cheeks and noses only add to the feeling of crispness.  Here are a few photos from a recent shoot to inspire you to get out there and create during this mostly ignored time of day:

My thanks to the St. Onge family for braving the chilly air in search of these shots.  It was a pleasure working with you!

  1. Beautiful photos .. I’m not a professional but I like the softness and the light the dusk brings … if taking photo of skylines or buildings – the dusk gives the best shots. Really like your photos – a beautiful catch of a very beautiful family. Great job.
