Family Photo in the Fall

Top 3 Reasons to do a Fall Family Portrait Session


  1. A professional photographer will make you and your family look your best. They know how to use the light to flatter you and bring out your best features. A good photographer will put you and your family to ease to create natural and candid photos. And best of all – you will all be in the same photo together for posterity.

  1. The colours of the autumn trees make wonderful backdrops. Whether it be the yellows of poplars or the deep reds of the maples, when the light hits them just right they glow. In the Fall, the air is cooler and more comfortable. The sun is lower so the photographer can take advantage of backlighting.

  1. Family photos make wonderful gifts and the holiday season is a few months away. Framed prints are always appreciated, and a fall portrait session gives you time to shop and or get a custom frame made. You could send a photo with your Christmas or holiday cards, or get a card printed with a greeting. Also, creating a family photo wall of your favourites is a great winter project.
