Afternoon spring light | Shoreview, Minnesota photographer

minneapolis documentary photography

We haven’t gotten the best weather lately, and since tomorrow is the first day of June I’d say we’re past due. Sure, we’ve had nice pockets here and there, plus some refreshing shorts-worthy temperatures way back in February, but what I’m looking for is an endless supply.

One thing that amazes in spring, no matter the temperature, is the light. The days are so long here, the sun rising at 5:30 am and not setting until almost 9:00 pm! What the north lacks in warmth it sure makes up for in light.

So my indoor photos take on a new quality, better light, often moody light as that afternoon sun pours through clouds and into our bedroom windows. Good thing I have a preteen who loves to read and therefore sits very still.

Look around today, see that long pretty light, and snap a picture of someone you love sitting right in the middle of it.
