Every year, we gear up for a big Fall season, and this year we want to work with your family! In this blog, we will cover some of the preparations we guide our clients through to create beautiful results.

Why Fall

Perhaps it is the cool air and anticipation of the holidays, but as an artist I know, the biggest draw to Fall portraits are the colors! Fall brings in the warm colors of reds, yellows, oranges and browns. These are perfect neutral colors that compliment every home.

Fall Portrait Season is from September – December.
Here are some examples to help you decide when is the best time for your family’s portraits.

When to Book?

The best time to book your Fall family portraits is as early as possible. To craft beautiful portraits, I take dedicated time and attention to create something special just for your family. Many of our clients want to hang beautiful portraits in their home for the holidays, as well as share their joy with friends and family with our custom designed holiday cards.

We suggest calling us at least 1 month before we host your session.
This gives us the time necessary to assist in planning your location and outfits, as well as adding in something special. Among some of these special plans, we have produced family videos, hot cocoa and mountain trips.

Chocolate really gets the kids engaged! We saved this for the end of the session 😉

In the Studio

Some clients prefer a studio session, over outdoors. Studio sessions are convenient, they don’t rely on perfect weather conditions, and can be hosted nearly any time of the day or year. Many of our busy clients prefer this convenience and love the fine art look and feel of simple, beautiful portraits. Perfect for those chilly Fall days later in the season.

When You’re Ready

When it comes to beautiful portraits, it can be hard to make a decision on what is best for your family. Perhaps you are not sure if you want studio or outdoor portraits. Maybe you don’t have any idea when you have the time in your schedule. We are here to help! For some, the answers don’t come easy, so let us help guide you by booking a complimentary consultation. We will help you find the time, help with planning (including outfits!), and more! We know just how special the bonding experience is during every portrait session. Taking the time to show your family just how much they mean to you is an important part of family life.

Simply contact us to get started. We look forward to working with you!
