Fall Family Portraits {Raleigh NC Family Photographer}

January 16, 2015  •  5 Comments

Fall is a very busy time of year for photographers.  The weather here in Raleigh is mild and the leaves are beautiful.  It is the most popular time of year for families to have their portraits done.  Yates Mill County Park is probably the most popular location close to where I live.  It is beautiful, but sadly, I will probably not be using this location anymore, at least not during the peak of the leaf season.  It's popularity has grown to an extent that I feel that I cannot give my clients a unique experience there.  I don't want them to be inconvenienced at that park by having to wait their turn while other families are photographed by their photographers.  It is important to me that I create images for your family that are different from all your friends.  

Luckily, this beautiful family visited me at the park before the peak of the madness.  There was hardly anyone there, even though it was a weekend, and we had a wonderful time.  Although the peak of the leaf season here is around the first and second week of November, mid to late October can be just as pretty, the weather is warmer, and the crowds aren't out yet.

If you are interested in a family portrait session this fall and want to use a beautiful location like this, I highly recommend having your session in October.  There are so many interesting areas in Yates Mill County Park.  As you can see, there are many different textures and colors that give a really neat touch to family portraits.  

Raleigh, Cary, Apex, and the surrounding areas have an abundance of beautiful locations for your family session.  If you need help choosing a location, let me help you.  I have a long list and can help you based on your vision.  Do you want a farm-like setting?  A garden?  Something more urban?  I have many ideas and even some that are off the beaten trail.  

I have been serving families in the Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Holly Springs, and surrounding areas since 2012.  If you are interested in a family session, please visit my website at www.ericacourtinephotography.com or send me a message here.
