Fall Photo Shoot Ideas!

Posted by on September 23, 2012


That one favorite season of mine that I miss dearly since moving out to LA.  Although, even here, there are signs of fall around here (a little hard with this 90 degree weather we’ve been having) but I thought I’d share a list with you about fun photo shoot ideas to try out:

1) Raking the Leaves

One of my favorite past times was getting out into the lawn and raking those leaves into piles.  Once the leaves were in piles, there were 2 options: either jump in them, or to bag them up.  One of my favorite kind of bags were the pumpkin looking bags.  Granted, a lot of cities were starting to come out with rules where you could only utilize paper lawn bags so those pumpkin shape bags became harder and harder.

So spend a day in the yard raking up those leaves, jumping in them, and capturing every moment along the way.

2) Apple Orchards

In Minnesota, my favorite September activity was heading to the Apple Orchard.  I could either pick out my own apples, or browse along the shop and pick my apples out from there.  And those honeycrisp apples, created at the University of Minnesota, were my all time favorite apples.  The day included apple brats, cinnamon ice cream atop my apple crisp.

Well, I also found out, there are apple orchards outside of LA, and in a week or two I’ll be headed out to Riley’s Apple Farm to experience it for my first time.  These kind of days make for some great pictures.  Your children picking their first apples, trying out the apple crisp, or spending the day at the petting zoo.

3) Pumpkin Patch

Spending the day at the pumpkin patch is one of my favorite fall activities.  Whether it’s going around picking out your favorite pumpkin, or back in Minnesota, walking through the giant corn mazes, there was something for everyone.  Even out in LA, there are lots everywhere with pumpkin patches for you to have fun at.  These little sights make for some great fall photo shoots.  A baby standing next to a pumpkin, hugging a scarecrow, or riding their first pony.

4) Fall Baking

After you get home from the apple orchard, let the fall baking begin!  One of my all time favorite things to do.  However, getting down and dirty in the kitchen, and creating those amazing treats and meals needs to be captured.  And not only that, the decorating that can go with creating that meal makes it all the more fun.  Leaf decor, pumpkins, fun baskets, or even indian corn make for some festive decorations.

5) Those Costumes!

And of course, the end of fall marks one of our favorite holidays: Halloween.  And capturing those costumes is one of the best photo shoots you can have.  Just remember, the shoot is dependent on the costume:

Go out, have fun, and happy shooting =)

    Your photos really capture the spirit of fall or (autumn as we say this side of the water!) Living in the country, I love to see the changing of the leaves into those golden colours!
