New England offers the most stunning colors during Fall! The trees are breathtaking, the air is cool, and the mood is lovely! It makes for THE season to capture sweet family moments and create long lasting memories. Fall peak foliage is by far the busiest season for us photographers (yei! I LOVE IT), yet there is a hidden secret if you want to avoid the crowds and guarantee a spot with your favorite photographer... it's called EARLY-MID September!....

What's the best season for family photos?

Family Photography

Every season as its perks. There's charm to all of them, and each offers a unique experience when it comes to gathering your family for a photo session.

There's no bad or good choices here. Just, whichever suits your family best. So let me give you the pros and cons of each for you to make up your mind.


Things that you must keep in mind if you want a family photo shoot

Family Photography

Deciding to have your family photo is the first step. Congrats!

However, timing is everything. When should it take place? Arranging for all to meet in a specific day and time sometimes is hard enough on a normal day.

Should it be indoors or outdoors? Posed or lifestyle? Should you time it for a specific event? What about the weather? What happens if someone can't make it?

Take note of all the things that you and your photographer need to manage to make this special moment happen.

Your family photo is just a print away from becoming a lasting memory

Congrats! You hired a professional photographer, you had a wonderful family photo shoot, got a breathtaking gallery with stunning photos, now what's next?

Believe it or not, most clients who hire and pay hundred of dollars in a session don't print a single photo. They become files uploaded in social media, yet the walls at home are craving for memories.

This is super common and the reason behind it is that there is little direction or guidance on what to do after the photos are delivered. In this blog I open your eyes to endless printing possibilities!
