Last year, I was blessed to get to photograph this sweet family in a pumpkin patch photoshoot. The air was crisp, the kids adorable, and the pumpkins were a delight. I would have loved to do this all over again just like we did last year.

However, I’m not sure about taking clients out to any “busy” locations. I do err on the side of caution so I’m bringing the pumpkin patch to my backyard.

Mini sessions can be scheduled through the month of October. It’s going to be very cute. Be sure to sign up if you’re in the area and need something to look forward to.

Why your family will love a pumpkin patch photoshoot

Last Year’s Location

Before we get to the reasons why you’ll love it, I do want to plug last year’s location. We headed out to Spring Creek Gardens which is the most adorable place to shop for all your garden needs. Not only do they have plants of every kind, but right now, they have the perfect pumpkin patch. Additionally, there’s wine tastings every day, as well as family activities and classes. You can also head out there for face painting, garden classes, and more. They even have a pumpkin play day perfect for families, so you definitely need to stop by on day! My husband and I have headed out here during covid, masked up, to shop for plants and be outdoors a bit too.

Reasons Your Family will Love it

We all know this year has, well, sucked. It’s basically not gone the way anyone had planned. We’ve cancelled a lot of things, a lot of businesses have suffered, and a lot of families are struggling. All of those issues factored in my plans for fall photography. I’m offering mini-sessions in my backyard because I know it will be safe, I know it will be fun, and I know I for one need both of those in my life.

I definitely think you’ll love it too. That’s why, I’m sharing last year’s pumpkin patch photoshoot today and why your family will love (& needs) it.

Now, if you’re not in the area, then I still have something for you as well. You can download free fall photos at the bottom of the page.

1. Something to Look Forward To

What’s certainly been hard is all the cancelled plans, right? You looked forward to that trip, nope, can’t do it. You looked forward to that party? Nope, not happening. Give yourself and your kiddos something to look forward to. You won’t regret it.

2. You’ll Have Fun Together

One thing I love about family sessions is playing with the kids. I’m not a mom, but I do know that kids sit and get instructed a lot during the day. Therefore, one thing I want them to take from my sessions is that they have fun. I play lots of games and love to let kids be little. That’s why, one of the best reasons for a session like this is that you’ll have fun together.

You’ve probably been cooped up, maybe snapping at each other. That’s not what this is about. This is about having fun, being silly, and letting it all go.

3. It Will Get You Into the Season

Next up, fall is a great time to get outside. We don’t even know if we’ll have college football this year! For me, that’s going to definitely affect my fall. Which means I need other things to get me into the season. Pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks isn’t going to cut it. I need pumpkins, decor, and more.

We may not even be able to have Halloween as normal. Well we certainly won’t have it as normal, if at all. So I’m spreading some cheer with fall colors, fall decor, and maybe a costume or two.

4. You’ll Remember What’s Important

Finally, I can’t do a photoshoot without showing the closeness of the family. Sometimes this means the perfect “Christmas card shot” and sometimes it’s just sweet hugs. More often than not, it’s both! I love these sweet moments below.

I know it’s hard for a lot of us who are around our families all.the.time. these days. But, remember what’s important and remember who you love with lots of hugs among lots of pumpkins
