Fall Sessions

Hey y’all! WOW It’s already mid-august! Now that our kiddos are back in school and we have a second to breath and complete a thought without hearing “mooommmmm!” let’s talk about scheduling your Fall Family Session!

The Fall season is a SUPER busy time of year for photographers, so in an effort to give my best to you and maintain balance with my own family, I am going to post my remaining available dates for each month. Sessions typically occur in the morning (around 9am.) or in the evening (an hour or two before sunset). IF there isn’t a date that works for you, do not hesitate to ask for an alternate date. If you would like to go ahead and get on the calendar for October just reach out! Sessions will be held at Blackacre Nature Preserve, off Taylorsville Rd close to Gene Snyder.

Here is my current availability for September Sessions:

Fall Session Dates

 

Every year I am asked “When would be the best time for Fall Colors?” My answer is this: I can make no guarantees, but typically mid to late October is the best time in Kentucky. However, it’s mostly a matter of luck, there is truly no telling. A week later or a good storm and all the leaves are gone. But,  never fear, there are many gorgeous options within the location I use which will give us a beautiful backdrop for our session.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule your session, just give me a call or shoot me an email! I look forward to capturing your family this year!
