4 photo book ideas for the fall


As we enter the month of September, one can sense autumn is right around the corner. In some places, you can even start to see leaves changing colors, the smells of nature shifting on the wind, and the occasional cool breeze to remind you that colder weather is just ahead.
This Fall season is the perfect time to create a custom photobook. Not only is Fall a time for creativity and comfort, it’s also a special time where photographs can really come to life. Whether you’re an aspiring photographer, a professional, or simply want to celebrate memories with your loved ones, here are 4 great ideas for your Fall-themed custom photobook.

Walks Through Nature

Fall has its very own unique aesthetic – one that can truly make for an amazing photobook project. Photographers love taking pictures in the Fall because the colors are so vibrant and the air outside is crisp and inviting for long treks. Any time you take to the trails, whether on a walk with your dog or a jog through the park, the photos you take can also represent a specific point in time you may love to return to.

Some of the most beautiful parts of Fall for photographs include:

  • Changing colors of the leaves, trees, and plants
  • Fallen leaves, acorns, and seedpods creating interesting textures
  • Weather changes, including rain, thunderstorms, and even sleet/snow
  • Natural objects like stones and rivers
  • Friends and family members dressed in their cozy autumn clothing

Festivals and Farmers’ Markets

While some areas may have farmers’ markets year-round, Fall is always a great time to schedule a family outing to your nearest outdoor market. Not only does it feel great to be outside, but the types of vegetables and fun items to buy are especially intriguing during the autumn seasons. Try and take a picture of the biggest pumpkins and gourds you can find, and be sure to gather the whole family in their sweaters and scarves around scarecrows and other interesting objects.

Fall is also a favorite time for festivals, traditions with long histories that celebrate the passing of the season, the Harvest time, Halloween, and other big events in a community like the beginning of the school year. These are fantastic times for making long-lasting memories that can be preserved in photos. When you sit down to create a Fall themed custom photobook, make sure to include the parts you enjoyed most, like caramel apples, hayrides, pumpkin carving, and more.

Fall Foodstuffs

It’s hard to argue against the notion that Fall has the best food of the year. From all the great fruits and vegetables that come out during the autumn months to the special meals you only eat around the holidays, Fall promises a wide range of delicious delicacies, like:

  • Cinnamon rolls
  • Hot chocolate
  • Pumpkin pie
  • Strudel
  • Coffees and lattes
  • Apple pie
  • Caramel apples
  • Stuffing
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Roast beef
  • Turkey!

So when you set out to take pictures that capture the aesthetic of Fall, don’t forget about food. Plenty of custom photobooks are made every year that only show off food items. It doesn’t matter if you’re a gourmet chef or just starting out making home-cooked meals – the foods of Fall are fantastic in photos.

Try taking pictures as soon as your food comes out of the oven – trust us, everyone will want to see!

Autumn Holidays

We’ve mentioned them a few times already, but the Fall season has some of the best holidays for photographs. Both Halloween and Thanksgiving are some of the most popular holidays of the year and many peoples’ absolute favorites. From taking photos of your family and friends in their costumes as well as neighborhood decorations during Halloween to big family photos for Thanksgiving, you’ll never run out of opportunities to capture memories during the Fall holidays.

When you design your Fall photobooks, you can present them any way you like. Whether you want to take just one of these ideas and expand it to an entire book or mix and match as you go, your book is sure to be a huge success, even if it’s just for your coffee table!
