Why Autumn is the Perfect Time to Shoot Family Photos

With beautiful fall colors and cooler temperatures sweeping the nation, now is the perfect time for family photos outdoors. Whether it’s just you and your pup or the entire extended family, the gorgeous autumn light and amazing foliage are just begging for a photo session.


JCPenney Portraits photographers adore the fall season for outdoor photography as the options are endless for beautiful pictures. It’s also the time of year that new parks are announced, so there very well might be some new locations near you!


The kicker: You have to act fast.


Because many parks shorten hours or close at the end of the season, your favorite participating park may not be an option if you delay scheduling your session. It’s best to book now to ensure you get the stunning outdoor pictures you want.


Scheduling outdoor photography today also puts you ahead of schedule for getting heart-warming family images that can be used for upcoming holiday cards or holiday gifts. You’ll get pictures with the look of high-end independent photography, but with the value you’ve come to appreciate from JCPenney Portraits.


What is an outdoor photography session like with JCPenney Portraits?


After scheduling an appointment, you’ll meet the photographer at the designated park where you’ll enjoy a fun and friendly 30-minute photo session. You can review the gallery for outdoor photography ideas, but rest assured the photographer will come ready with location and pose ideas that embrace the outdoor environment and reflect your family’s personality.


The session fee for outdoor photography is just $24.99 and includes one high-res image of your choice!


Wondering about the weather? Yes, Mother Nature does come into play with outdoor photos. If the weather doesn’t cooperate the day of your session, your photographer may suggest a covered area in the park. Otherwise, you can easily reschedule for a different day.


After your session comes the hard part: waiting for your photos to be available for review online. Within a week your session pictures will be ready to review, and you’ll be notified so you can then sign into your account to select your free one high-res image and browse other pictures and order photo packages and holiday gifts.


From shareable images, to prints, cards and more, there are so many ways to use and show off these lovely outdoor pictures!
