Why Autumn is a perfect time of year for a family photoshoot – Family Photography in Tunbridge Wells.
Well Autumn this year seemed almost to begin in August and what a fabulous couple of months it has been so far ! Lots of dry weather, a mass of colour and some beautiful light.
“Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.” Unknown.
A lot of people think they have left it too late in the year to have an outdoor photoshoot when I advise them that I always schedule in a back up date in case of inclemental weather. I do that even in the summer which can be just as unpredictable!
In fact this is the perfect time of year for family photos. The colours are so rich, creating beautiful backdrops. There is still some foliage on the trees adding in greens to the oranges, yellows and reds whilst the fallen leaves create a magical carpet. I deliberately don’t book shoots back to back allowing for flexibility for the weather. There is never a panic – we always find a new suitable date for all.
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” Albert Camus.
I offer advice to all my clients on what to wear for their photoshoot and this is done so you all tie in beautifully with the changing scenery and with each other. Through following this we create a certain harmony with the environment like no other season really can. It’s also perfect because it’s not too cold and if it takes a turn we can wrap everyone up just that bit more.
“Notice that Autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature.” Friedrich Nietzsche.
Shoots are loads of fun in Autumn – log balancing, leaf throwing, acorn hunting, lots of hugs…… As I often shoot Wells family photography in Tunbridge Wells on the Tunbridge Wells Common we also have time for a play on the rocks!
“Anyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead has never seen them dancing on a windy day.” Shira Tamir
Your children will love that I’m relaxed and fun and you will love my expertise in portraiture. Together we create a little bit of magic to be remembered for years to come.
After your shoot I professionally edit the best images and create a gallery for you. I have some wonderful samples of frames, canvases and acrylics and can handle everything right through to the creation of a stunning piece of wall art for your home. I sell multi aperture frames that hold a number of different images and these are often perfect for these types of sessions.
Thinking about Christmas yet?
Autumn professional family photographs create wonderful gifts for people at Christmas – I offer stunning prints in sets beautifully mounted and natural wooden blocks suitable for gifts and your own home. At the end of the session we create a winter image. Why don’t you bring along some winter coats and hats and make it as Christmassy as you wish? I will then add the magic and your Christmas cards are sorted!
All sessions in November will have this opportunity to create a winter image.
I can offer this in social media format with falling snow as well!
I look forward to meeting you! For all bookings please drop me a line on my Contact Form.
