Day #20 of the 31 Days of Fall Decor series
Fall pictures are a great way to decorate your home for not a lot of $!
You don’t have to use an incredible camera, and you can use free photo editing software like a Picmonkey.
You can simply add them to frames or have them blown up and stretch them over a canvas.
See this great tutorial at Dear Lillie
These are some pictures my mom took last week. I edited them in Photoshop elements.
For fall pictures I basically tell people to wear “fall colors”. We do not plan to purchase new clothes for family pictures, and I feel that some “fall-ish” colored clothes and making sure there is some dark and light contrast seems to suffice.
However, I did see this tutorial on how to plan family photo outfits at It’s Overflowing the other day, and thought it had some great ideas.
I’m pretty in LOVE with this picture above. We gave Eva that “weed” to play with to keep her occupied, and the colors, pose and everyone’s expressions turned out perfect!
The first picture (above) I edited in Photoshop, but the two below I edited in Picmonkey.
There is SO MUCH you can do in Picmonkey! If you currently don’t have editing software, try Picmonkey….you’ll be addicted!
Fall pictures are perfect with fall colored foliage. Just find some trees that have turned color and have yellow leaves on the ground.
The day we took these the wind was blowing, so we used the side of a local building to block the wind.
My mom is a Photoshop whiz, and is really good at cutting people’s heads out of the picture with Photoshop and replacing them with better looking heads from other pictures. lol
I’m not that good, so I would probably send this picture to her to replace my three year old’s face, however, it looks pretty decent just as it is.
The pictures below I edited in Photoshop, and then put them in this strip in Picmonkey.
I love pictures that show a families personality. Smiling at the camera is great, but some humor is even better in my opinion.
The last one is of my boys. I edited the first one in Photoshop and the versions below were edited in Picmonkey.
Fall pictures are not only a good way to decorate for fall, but are a perfect addition to Christmas cards….which I’m not even ready to think about yet!
