I’ll always be a Summer girl to my core but that doesn’t mean I can’t admit that Fall has the most spectacular colors! Take advantage of the Autumn beauty by getting some family photos taken with your family. I’m learning all too sadly just how quickly your kids don’t stay kids. Here are some Fall family photo ideas to preserve your special family memories.
There’s something about barns that speaks home and family. Barns also make for gorgeous Americana photo backgrounds. Capture your own barn picture by contacting a local farm. They’re usually happy to share their grounds with you as long as you don’t crowd out other visitors. Source.
Take a family photo gathering fruit or crops at a nearby orchard. I like how they incorporated the apple barrel into the pictures. Wearing red really accentuated the Autumn colors. Image source.
It’s terribly silly but I have a favorite illustration of Charlie Brown and Snoopy on a dock. Their backs are facing toward the viewer and it’s nothing more than a boy sitting peacefully with his best friend taking in a beautiful view. I remember seeing that illustration as a child and knowing I was going to have a dog myself some day and that I wanted to sit on the dock with him like Charlie and Snoopy. Just two buddies enjoying a quiet moment without the need to speak. This photo reminds me so much of that illustration and I think it brings out in the viewer all those same pleasant emotions. A boy and his mom just enjoying one another’s company without the need to say anything at all. Source.
