When the weather outside is frightening, sometimes it makes sense to do family portraits in the studio. Studio portraits hold the distinct advantage of the client being able to wear whatever outfit he/she wants and have portraits on any day and time. It could be storming outside, but we’ll be fine in studio. Studio portraits also make sense if you work odd hours and it is difficult to get time off to do portraits during daylight hours.
