Frequently asked questions

A good location for fall family photos is a place with colorful autumn leaves, like a park, a forest, an orchard, or even your own backyard. Places with rustic barns, haystacks, or pumpkin patches also create a nice fall feel.

Wearing coordinating colors like warm reds, oranges, yellows, browns, and greens can look great in fall photos. Think comfy sweaters, scarves, and boots. Try to avoid matching exactly and instead opt for complementary colors and patterns.

You can use props like leaves, pumpkins, apples, blankets, and even a cup of hot cocoa to add a cozy fall touch to your photos. Just make sure they don't distract too much from your family.

The golden hour, which is shortly after sunrise or before sunset, provides beautiful, soft lighting for photos. The warm light during these times can really capture the essence of fall.

Try picking apples at an orchard, playing in the leaves, going on a hayride, or visiting a pumpkin patch for fun activities that also make for great photo opportunities.

Yes, pets can definitely join in! They can add a playful and personal touch to your photos. Just make sure to bring treats or toys to keep them focused.

If it's in your budget, a professional photographer can help capture the perfect moment with high-quality images. However, you can also take beautiful photos with a good camera or even a smartphone.

Simple poses like hugging, holding hands while walking, sitting among the leaves, or even a candid laughter shot are classic. Mix in posed shots with natural and playful ones for variety.

Dress your baby warmly in layers and have blankets on hand. Bring a favorite toy to keep them happy and try to schedule the shoot around their happiest time of the day.

If the weather doesn't cooperate, you can either reschedule, move the shoot indoors with fall decorations as a backdrop, or embrace the weather and go for an adventurous rainy day shoot with umbrellas and rain boots.


Blowing Kisses

Isn't this family so sweet? I love how the little girls is blowing kisses. In the next shot - leaf pile toss!


Old Suitcase

This old suitcase makes an ideal prop because it's just the right color for a fall photo shoot! I wonder if the photographer chose it because it matches the leaves, or if she found the spot with the leaves because she already had the suitcase?
