Monday's Must Have - Golden Hour

Today's Must Have is for those both in front of and behind the camera. There is a magical time of day to take photographs...its called the golden hour. What is it? Its the hour when the sun is rising and the hour when the sun is setting. What's so special about it? Well, the light is beautiful...golden and soft. There are no harsh shadows or dark eyes. I love shooting at sunset. And as I've posted before, I will sometime get out super early with Grace to shoot at sunrise. Now you know why I suggest sunset for photo sessions. And with the clocks changing soon, it will easier for families with young children to have portrait sessions at sunset.
Here are of my favorite photos taken during the golden hour...
