Grimsby & surrounding areas are so beautiful at all times of the year, but especially in the spring.
There is something so special about the crisp but slightly warm air. The subtle colours trying to come out, and all of the wildlife coming out of hibernation.
My hope is that during this season, you take the time to get out and take some photos.
Find the hidden gems and share them with me! I don’t get the chance to get out as much as I’d like to… but when I do I love every minute of it.
Here are a few of my favourite places to photograph clients during this time of year for some pops of colour.
You may think that they are my “go to” place and they are because they look fabulous in every season. We have been friends for many years and I get exclusive access to locations that no one else gets to go! This makes for some pretty spectacular photos.
This is a wonderful spot for family photos. They do charge for photographers use during their prime seasons, however… their trails, old buildings and array of natural landscape makes taking pictures here so exciting! There is always something new to look at and so many great “spots” to take pictures.
The grimsby pump house may seem like an unusual location to some; but for me… I see opportunity! There are some great structures, like the gazebo and the building to use, as well as the natural forest area and the lake to use as backdrops.
Especially in the spring time when all of the leaves are starting to pop, really makes this location a favourite!
Now, if you are looking to take some nature photos yourself, I also have some great locations for you listed below!
I LOVE going on morning hikes with Brooke before work. This is the best time to get out, clear your mind and get yourself moving before the day begins. During the spring time, I love taking my camera with me to capture the little things. I bring out my Macro lens and get on the ground and photograph the little buds popping out of the ground and get up on a rock and focus in on an individual bud on a tree branch. The things to photograph at the Bruce Trail are endless!
* I haven’t included this in my family photo list – only because it is generally busy and hard to get photos without strangers passing by!
Honestly, I’ve never been one to photograph much at the beach. I’m just not a beachy person. But I do love to get out at least 1 EARLY morning in the spring and photograph the mist coming off the lake as the sun rises down at Kelson Beach. There is an old *broken* pier that makes this location unique and different from all of the other beaches in niagara.
* This location could be used for family portraits if you love the beach! I would recommend spring; as this beach gets pretty busy during the summer months.
Your garden / backyard!
Why leave the house if you don’t have to, right?!
If you have some gardens at your house, maybe a bird bath… how about some trees?
Then you have everything you need to get those beautiful spring shots right there in your own backyard!
If you have any questions along the way, I am always here to help!
