It’s finally turned slightly less oppressive outside.
The leaves are just starting to blow off the trees.
Football is all over TV.
I love fall for it’s cooler temperatures, it’s colors and it’s crunch under my feet.
It’s the best time on the calendar for outdoor portraits, too.
There is nothing like a big pile of leaves to distract a toddler and get genuine smiles. The nearby forest preserve gives you a palette of colors that could never be reproduced on a studio backdrop. And high school seniors can romp through the leaves in any outfit they choose, feeling carefree and cool in both t-shirts and sweaters!
September is my favorite month for many reasons. Start your own family tradition by getting the extended family together to watch a Bears game and schedule a fun family portrait session outside before or after!
You’ll be glad you did!
