Old Montreal Holiday Photoshoot

Are you visiting or a local and want to do an Old Montreal Holiday Photoshoot? I recently did a wonderful shoot with a friend, her kids and her sister who was visiting from out of town. We choose to start about 10 minutes before sunset and end around 25 minutes after sunset to get a mix of photos.

A lot of visitors to Montreal find it difficult to judge temperature and what to wear. To give you an example, the temperature when we took the above photos was 1C (33F) - a mild winter day. The kids were cold after about 15 minutes. They are locals so they are used to the temperature. When deciding what to wear consider your clothing carefully. Freezing kids will make for a tough shoot.

I really wanted to focus on capturing the Christmas lights and knew that I wanted to do a short shoot so we stuck around Old Montreal near the Marché Bonsecours.

The most amazing thing about doing an evening shoot in the winter? Forget about 8pm sunset times - the sun goes down around 4:00 - 4:30 in the winter! Early enough for even the smallest littles. Prefer a sunrise shoot - it doesn't rise until around 7:30am!

I have special pricing for winter photoshoots. I know it can be cold. Please see my pricing here.
