Please check my calendar for upcoming fine art sales events as well as session availability!
Roots and Twigs Photography shoots session 7 days per week, any time of day, and throughout the year. Art shows, planned travel session availability, and black-out dates are noted in the calendar, but other dates are generally available for sessions, whether they are local to Fort Collins or destination sessions.
What can we expect in terms of weather? Please link below for monthly forecasts and sunrise/sunset times for some of the places I most frequently shoot:
Fort Collins, Colorado
Estes Park/Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado
Nags Head, North Carolina
Raleigh, North Carolina
Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Asheville, North Carolina
Roots and Twigs Photography maintains its own photography studio in Fort Collins, and can also provide on-location studio lighting.
For outdoor sessions, using available natural light, morning light is softer and warmer in the 60 minutes or so following sunrise, which can be rather early for some on the weekend! Similarly, if you want to take advantage of lovely evening sunset light, it is best to include some or all of the 60-90 minutes before sunset during your session time. This is sometimes a challenge where young children are involved. Challenges may include hunger, bed time, and too much movement to capture sharp images as light fades. I can readily provide you with sunrise and sunset times for any day you are considering for a session. Outside of these “Golden Hour” session times, the best lighting will generally be in open shade areas, away from bright sunlight, harsh shadows, and dappled shade.
