What Halloween props should I use?
When selecting your props remember to consider your clientele. Toddlers and young children might be nervous around the spookier decorations, so it might be best to stick with traditional items like pumpkins, gourds, fall leaves, lanterns and jack-o-lanterns. Leave the spookier items for your teens & adult sessions.

I'm Considering an Outdoor Mini Session
Temperature: October brings cooler temperatures that often cause runny noses & rosy cheeks. Be sure clients dress appropriately for the weather, especially the little ones and ALWAYS have a box of tissues handy.
Rain: No one wants their photos taken in the rain. Be sure to have a backup plan in the event your outdoor photo session gets cancelled due to the weather. Having a secondary location, such as your indoor studio, will be much appreciated by your clients without having to reschedule. Less stress for everyone involved.
Location: Where will you be meeting your clients? At a farm? In a cornfield? Be sure to consider ground conditions and prepare your clients accordingly. Will they be walking through a muddy pumpkin patch? No big deal if they know ahead of time. But no one likes muddy surprises.
