My Favorite Fall Tradition | Our Family Photo Shoot

Fall is my favorite. So, needless to say, our yearly tradition of a fall family photo shoot makes me ridiculously giddy and boundlessly grateful.

Giddy because although it can be stressful, I love spending weeks picking out our outfits. Since we started this tradition 5 years ago, I have not used the same color scheme twice. Today, 4 days before this year’s shoot, I did change our outfits completely, though!

Grateful because there was a time in my life I wasn’t sure I’d have a family at all. If you’re not familiar with our story, my husband and I conceived triplets through IVF as a last resort to start the children we so wanted.

Family Photo Shoot

This weekend will be the 6th October we’ve had our fall photos taken at my in-law’s pumpkin patch. There’s pretty much no other place I’d want to have the shoot. It’s so beautiful out there.

In the past years, there have been tears. It’s been windy and cold. It’s been hot. And there has been stress, but lots of laughs too. This year, there will be fewer teeth (the kids, not me or the hubs!) and hopefully more fun.

I can’t wait to show you the results my most favorite fall tradition – our family photo shoot.

Until then, check out the last 5 years…

Do you have a favorite fall tradition? I’d love to hear about them in the comments!

  1. Wow, your photos look radiant! It’s neat seeing the yearly progression of photos so we can see how your children have grown. Where I live in Southern California, we don’t have much of a fall, but I do like carving a pumpkin so I can eat roasted seeds!

  2. I love your tradition. We’ve been trying to come up with some ideas to start a family tradition with. We’re terrible about getting our family photos done so this might be the new tradition.

  3. Oh my goodness! I love the range of emotions on these photos and the fact that you are shooting at the same family location. Can’t wait to see this year’s photos.

  4. Your pictures are so adorable. Those kids are just beautiful. I literally lol’d at your 2015 Christmas card pic. Having 2 toddlers, I know that most of the pics are of that nature…at least for me. Thanks for the laugh.

  5. I like this tradition. Fall is one of my favorite times to get our family pictures done as well. I applaud you on never using the same color scheme, that is not easy! For me the outfits are the most stressful part! Thanks for sharing your lovely family photos.

  6. Great pics from the last 5 years! I bet this year’s pics are just as wonderful! I love fall photos with my family as well. I also love successful IVF stories such as yours. 🙂

  7. Same here! Pumpkin patch photos are always our favorite photos of the year too!! Funny thing though, the pumpkin patch we go to is at a place called “Santas Christmas Tree Farm” haha!!

  8. We do family pictures Mothers Day weekend cause my daughter’s birthday is in May. Its good to have family traditions!
