Marie says:

“This session took place in January, as I wanted to showcase how beautiful winter portraits can be. Often people think winter is the time NOT to have photographs taken, but nothing could be further from the truth.

The light is soft and the muted colors allow for my subjects to pop. Winter is also perfect as one has no humidity to contend with, nor snakes or mosquitoes – which can be an issue during the hot North Carolina summers.”

Marie’s Photography Tip:

To achieve perfect exposure and color, I highly recommend the use of an ExpoDisc.

Using the ExpoDisc ensures gorgeous images in camera, which makes editing a breeze and much less time consuming. Getting it right to begin with is the key to better time management and better results in post production.


Marie used a Nikon D700 with a Nikkor f/2.8 24-70mm lens to capture these images.

  1. If my winter looked like that I would be taking pictures for sure!!! Add in 6 ft of snow and -30 degree Celsius temperatures it is truly impossible.

  2. Wow…yeah, that would be a bit difficult. 🙂 I should add “southern” winter portraits.
