4 Reasons to take Fall Family Pictures

Even though it is still 100 degrees outside (literally) it is already time to start thinking of your fall family pictures! Utah colors will be popping soon so if you’re looking to fill your walls with some new portraits of your favorite people, now is the time to schedule. If you’re on the fence, here are four reasons to take family pictures this fall. 

  1. You will not find a prettier backdrop.

Utah’s scenery during the Fall is unreal. No matter what you decide to wear, Fall shows up as the perfect backdrop to capture your family. And trust me, you are not going to regret seeing nature’s vibrant, natural colors framed on your wall for years to come. 

  1. Your kiddos are always changing.

The changing leaves in Fall remind us that life is always moving forward and change is imminent! Kids grow incredibly fast and every year brings new milestones. A family photo session is the perfect way to mark time and freeze your perfect family as they are right. now. Gap tooth smile, just learning to walk, and recently cut-her-own-bangs and all.

  1. Fall fashion.

Okay, I know it sounds stupid, but fall fashion is so. fun! Whether you’re going for clean & neutral, moody & earth-toned, or anything in-between, you cannot go wrong when choosing outfits for fall family pictures. And let’s be honest, who does not absolutely die at the sight of your toddler in a tiny sweater?? Or your daughter in a pinafore dress with tights? Gah, it’s so so good. 

  1. Check Christmas cards off of your list.

There is nothing worse than flipping the calendar to December and realizing you don’t have family pictures for your annual christmas card. Let fall family pictures check this one off of your list. Your future self is going to thank you! 

So as you get ready for fall and all of its fun family traditions, take a pause. Consider capturing the beauty, the chaos, the love, and the uniqueness of your family  right now. It’s a gift your future self, and generations to come, will surely treasure.
