When To Book Your Fall Family Photo Session

If I had a dollar for every time I have been asked “when will the leaves change?” I wouldn’t have to work any more! Fall is by far the most popular time for family photos; the colors are beautiful, the weather is crisp, and the light is super yummy. So, when is the best time to book your fall family photo session?

Fall Family Photo Session

We begin booking fall family photo sessions in July and are usually fully booked by the end of September.

The time to call to book is now! EKP is a full service studio that is with you every step of the way from the consultation through choosing artwork for you walls and coffee tables. Since we offer each client a unique experience and hold the majority of our sessions in the evening there is limited availability. The quicker you give us a call the better!

When it comes to those beautiful fall colors the second & third weeks of October seem to be the sweet spot. There are only so many sessions I can get in in that 2 week period; I’m just one girl! Luckily I have the ability to “enhance” the scenery up until that point!

Yes, that’s right. I can give you those fall colors at any point in time during the year.

Fall Family Photos

This being said, I like to start photographing fall family sessions mid September and will take sessions all the way through the second or third week of November. This allows plenty of time to get your beautiful prints and products ordered and in hand before the holiday season. It also provides a larger window so I am able to make sure everyone can get in to see me before all our leaves have been blown away during those windy fall days we know all too well in Southern Illinois.

At EKP our typical turn around from order date to the time clients have product in hand is 6 weeks; and our deadline for Christmas orders is the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
