I don’t know about you, but my Pinterest feed is currently filled with adorable fall family pictures and ideas for a photo shoot. October and November are great months to grab your camera (or a photographer), coordinate your entire family’s outfits, and plan an afternoon in some quiet location where the visitors are few and the views are plenty – and plenty beautiful at that! Sprawling branches slowly shedding their bright colors of red, orange, and yellow dangling leaves burst out from behind a laughing family sitting on a pretty quilt in the grass. Husband and wife cuddle close in front of a rustic red barn (where do these people FIND these barns?!) Brothers and sisters put their arms around each other and smile “CHEESE!” at the clicking camera. Looking at these perfectly-timed shots creates something deep and dark in the pit of our souls. Photo envy.
