6 spectacular reasons to book fall outdoor photography sessions

When you think of fall, you probably think of pumpkins, leaves, apple orchards and cooler weather. At JCPenney Portraits, we think of photography. Autumn is an amazing time for family photography. If you haven't considered all the reasons why this is the season to book your outdoor photography session, let us give you the highlights:

Nature

Mother Nature provides a living backdrop splashed with beautiful colors. The leaves in rich autumn hues make the ideal setting for family photography. You're sure to try a few posed images with the wonder of nature surrounding you, but then try for some candid moments of kids or pets playing in the leaves. These action moments can really highlight the love of a family and their unique personality.

Light

In autumn the light seems to soften with an amber hue, making it perfect for capturing the warmth of a family in photographs. You can almost feel the golden light in fall photographs! Even on overcast days, fall presents an ideal opportunity for photographers because they don't have to worry about harsh shadows often associated with sunny summer days when overhead light is strong.

Clothing

From sweaters and jean jackets to plaids and boots, when you switch out your wardrobe for fall clothing, you'll find there are so many possibilities for fantastic fall photography attire. Even autumn accessories offer an opportunity to add style to your photographs. Consider how items like scarves and knit mittens might add a personal touch.

Comfort

Fall brings cooler temperatures, which also means photography sessions are more comfortable for family members of all ages. No need to worry about dealing with toddler tantrums or shiny faces due to the heat. Comfort brings happiness, and happiness makes for memorable photographs and a fun experience for everyone.

Local parks

To get breathtaking family photography this fall you don't have to look any further than your local parks. Fall is a dancing delight of colors just up the road, so take advantage before Old Man Winter arrives. Check out the list of participating parks for outdoor photography so you can book a session with JCPenney Portraits. Your session fee is just $24.99 and includes one high-res image of your choice!

Holiday ready

The neutral tones in fall photography are ideal for holiday cards. And while the holidays may seem a long time away, they really are just right around the corner. When you get your family photography completed now, you're ready with amazing images you can use for holiday cards and unique gifts, so there's one less thing to think about later this year.
