Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.
I love Keats and really feel this poem sums up the magic of Autumn. This season is fantastic for photographers, everywhere I look there is a gorgeous new back drop and stunning lighting! The leaves are quickly turning golden and rust and I have started to crave stew and mash!
I LOVE shooting in the Autumn and winter. So many people I talk to are ‘waiting for summer’ to have their family shoot done, which I can understand green grass, shorts and tee shirts the beach, buckets and spades, but look at the results that a autumn or winter shoot can produce; Hats and scarves, wrapped up warm, your family shots take a totally different feel, cosier, warmer, almost more intimate and often (check out the girls in the snow) even more fun!…. Give me a call or drop me an email to arrange your shoot now, if you would like your images to give as Christmas gifts then your shoot must be booked before the 7th of November. Now grab your self a hot chocolate, put your feel up and enjoy these tasters 2009/10 Autumn and winter shoots…
