Visiting The Netherlands during the December holidays? I'm adding Holiday spirit with all the activities we have for the last days of the year. As now, I'm embracing new traditions, as Sinterklaas celebrated at the beginning of December. I must say, Christmas is not really a big holiday here, but the atmosphere and the lights in the city make it beautiful to visit even in the deep of winter.
Today I'm showcasing Kirstin's family pictures taken in the Jordaan. They moved to The Netherlands a back ago, and she shared with me a piece of great advice: "embrace the weather."
During Autumn, it rains a lot, making it lovely for reflections and playing into the ponds, some of nature shows beautiful yellow and red colors. Here I advise completely using colorful raincoats and rain boots for the kids. We can play around and jump. The little ones have a blast every time they do this and enjoy this characteristic of Amsterdam. One detail to tell is that even though the weather app - I use Buienradar - says it rains all day, there are some moments we can absolutely do the pictures without an umbrella. Have one with you for more romantic images walking along the beautiful cobblestone streets of the center.
I will make sure you always have protection when the rain is heavy.
Jordaan allows us to combine pictures using little streets, lots of bridges, old houses, and small roads full of colors. In case the rain is too heavy, we can also choose to photograph through a window in one of the several cafés around.
Keep in mind that if you are a tourist and travel soon, don't forget that the best day for doing your photo session is at the beginning of your stay. You will receive a pleasant walking around the best areas and a lot of local advice to take advantage of the time you have. If you choose to have your session during November and February, extra flexibility will be added due to heavy rain.
