Fall Foliage Family Photographer

Fall is the craziest time for us Boston family photographers. If you are interested in a fall foliage family session please reach out in August to get on my wait list. Even though I only open my sessions 1.5 months in advance of the month you are looking for, I open sessions to my wait list and Baby 1 Year package families first. I am often booked up and have to turn away families so please plan accordingly. If not this year hopefully another year we can work together to create some beautiful fall family images with Boston as a backdrop!

Why Larz Anderson Park?

Classic Larz Anderson Park has always been a favourite of mine. You get a lovely mix of gorgeous fall foliage, natural green space, architectural elements (well, just one really – and it’s always packed) and beautiful water. There’s always a lot to fall back on in case one spot is being used by another photographer/family. As a family photographer, I can assess the location’s potential within seconds. As a result, I can move my families quickly in case someone comes into our background, or if a popular spot is being used. I don’t even miss a beat and my clients trust me when I move them around and direct them to new spots. I just ask my families to be flexible too. It’s about your beautiful family and the interactions between you guys rather than the background anyway! This is what I specialize in for my style of family photography. There is a link to some more family sessions at Larz at the end of this blog post.

The Wardrobe Choices

I provide tips for all of my clients in terms of wardrobe in case they are struggling, but I never really give guidance to this stylish and fabulous mom. She did an unexpected rose pop of color in her skirt to tie into the childrens’ boots and I was tickled pink ( couldn’t resist). The emerald sweater of the dad was perfectly contrasted to their outfits. If you need guidance this can help (color wheel guys!) . All this while maintaining harmony with the colours of the season. You always want your location to inspire your wardrobe and colour scheme. This is why I guide families to stay away from fluorescent colors as you will never see this in nature, nor in the city (unless we do a street art inspired session, which I would LOVE to do). I couldn’t be happier with the fall foliage during this day and also the quality of light we were getting.

Stormy weather

So you may be wondering why there are no other souls in the park. I like to shoot on weekdays for this particular reason. You are not fighting with a hundred other photographers for a prized location, nor are the kids being distracted by the million other kids in the vicinity. If you have kids, you know they will look everywhere if there’s anything even remotely interesting off-camera.

Another thing to note is that it had been raining just minutes before and even during this session. I love how adaptable my clients are. We knew the odds of the weather and she was so flexible and wanted to just go for it. I am so pleased with how it all came together and this was only possible because I have the best clients. I give my clients the option to reschedule for rain, but sometimes the best light is just pre- or post-storm. High risks = high reward.

I will be honest. I usually don’t get this many posed family photos. These kids were just so cooperative.
