My dearest readers, pumpkin spice season has descended upon us in a cloud of cinnamon once again. And so begins the race to stuff out October weekends with all the Autumn fun we can fit in those short eight days. It's beyond my understanding why pumpkin patches don't remain through November, but apparently all pumpkin turn to mush on October 31st at midnight, so this month I'll be rushing to soak up as much of the pumpkin magic while I can.
For starters let make sure we're on the same page in regards to what makes a pumpkin patch, the best! For me,(a lover of taking cute photos and blessing my offspring with fun), the things I look for are:
Float in, checks all the boxes. It is for the time being my favorite pumpkin patch in the San Antonio area. If you want to out in the wild, ranch day experience and, perhaps a pumpkin patch with hayrides, corn maizes, and abandoned school buses may be a better fit for you, but for a magical l evening out with the fam or a quick afternoon patch visit, and especially for the best photos, this one is perfection.
Alas my gals and ghouls, what kind of photographer would I be if I didn't leave you with some photo tips for your pumpkin patch outing?
For this particular tradition, there are some photos I want to be sure and capture every year. I also like the consistency of side by side photos as my kids grow every year.
Take this checklist with you, and tag me on instagram in your favorites!
