Late summer and Fall Photoshoots

Late summer and fall photoshoots are my absolute favorite. The variety of flowers and colors are so vibrant and beautiful that it makes the months of August through October a very popular photography season. People love to be photographed while surrounding themselves in Mother Nature’s beauty.

Photoshoot Idea #1: Flower fields

Flower fields are at the top of my list of best places to be photographed during August and September. In the Ohio Valley you can visit local farms and businesses that plant wildflowers, sunflowers, and more. Late summer is when you can expect to see these fields blooming. But don’t drag your feet if you want to be photographed with these seasonal beauties because they are only in bloom for a short period of time.


Sunset, or golden hour photoshoots are usually offered from the months of May through September. Sunsets are beautiful to watch in person and photographers love the intense and saturated colors that can set the sky ablaze. The warm tones and fiery palette can create a sense of warmth, romance, and emotion in your photographs. Golden hour is also great for capturing silhouettes. The sun sits right above the horizon so expect to have your photoshoot scheduled about an hour before the sun sets.
