The fall is all about family time to me. As a family, we love going out to our favorite Philadelphia area orchards for apple and pumpkin picking, hayrides, and corn mazes, simmering delicious soups in the crock pot, and cuddling up in cute sweaters and blankets together.  I love photographing families in the fall because our sessions are always so cozy and fun – and when everyone’s having fun, we can get some truly beautiful portraits of you and the people you love the most!

When to book:
Fall is the perfect time for outdoor family sessions, which is why the calendar fills so quickly. The temperatures are pretty much perfect for everyone in the group and we have so many options for gorgeous backdrops! If you want the true, rich colors of the fall, mid-to-late October is the best time of year for family photos. That’s when the leaves have truly changed and we can capture the season at its peak beauty. My schedule books up quickly so make sure we talk soon if those are the colors and overall vibe you want in your photos!

Where to go:
I love photographing families just enjoying the change in seasons. For some, that might mean jumping on hay bales or having a giant family leaf battle. Other families might love a hike the woods with a stop for a cozy picnic and cuddle on your family’s outdoor quilt. And still for some, it’s about just enjoying a warm coffee or hot cocoa in the city. Whatever your family loves doing in the fall, let’s take the time to capture it. Just keep in mind, some of the more popular locations around town may be extra busy or even require a permit (but I’ll help you navigate all of that as we start to plan your fall session). 

I can’t wait to help you plan your fall family session!  Be sure to contact me soon to get your session on the calendar!
