Fall River Family Portraits
Last October, I got the pleasure of taking some stunning PNW fall river family portraits for one of my Model Team girls! Miss Carly is on my Class of 2023 Model Team and goes to Puyallup High School. She is also a fantastic level 10 gymnast, which if you didn’t know, is the highest level in the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympics Program. How cool is that?? Carly committed to Boise State to continue her education and her gymnastics career at the D1 university level this fall. Congrats to Carly and her family on two huge accomplishments!
Capturing Family Memories with Your Grad
Before she heads off to Idaho, we wanted to make sure that Carly and her family got some photos with everyone all together! With busy schedules and active kids, it can be hard to find time to get the whole family in one place. But when you do, the memories are always worth the effort. Especially for photos with your soon-to-be graduate that will last forever! I was SO excited to be able to capture this moment for Carly and her family, and help honor this special time in their lives! Let’s go check out what their fall session had in store!
A Bridge, A River, and Some October Sunshine
We did their photos at the end of October at this great new location I found from another photographer. Carly’s mom decided to take me up on this new river and bridge location and we had a blast. They wore the perfect colors to match the scenery. We got photos with the whole family, of Carly and her brothers, and of course some great ones with Mom and Dad and the kids! It was so much fun getting to play on the bridge and get close to the water. For a family with older, active kids, planning your photos at a spot where they can adventure around is a huge perk! I’m so glad Carly and her family trusted me to try out this location because the photos turned out AH-mazing!
Planning For Your Fall Photos in the PNW
Picking the right time for your family photos all comes down to what works best for you and your family! What time of year can you get everyone together? Which season do you enjoy the most? If you like wearing jeans and sweaters or love warm fall colors like I do, then September through November is the time for you! At least in Washington State. We have tons of outdoor locations that are perfect for showing off all those colorful leaves and PNW landscapes. Plus, you can plan your outfits to go with the season. Carly and her family did an awesome job coordinating with their river location and still allowed each person to dress in their own style! Let me know in the comments if your family wants to take your next portraits riverside!
