Now Is The Right Time For Appleton Family Photography ~ M. C. Kinney Photography

Parents, I know it's hard to believe but your college students are leaving for their dorms soon and the high school students will be returning to their classrooms over the next couple of weeks. Summer in Appleton,  Wisconsin just seems to fly by these days. First with the weather that seems slow to change to warm days in April and May, then crazy humidity in June, a few good weeks of weather in July and already getting cold again in August. I guess that's just how it's going to be for a while.

I remember Appleton Family Photography 23 years ago, when August was crazy humid and by mid-September the leaves were pretty much already changed and off the trees. Now in 2017, that color change won't happen until mid to even late October. But with that change comes some pretty cold weather. So...waiting for the best color may not be the best choice. Right now the colors are perfect for so many clothing and color palette options for decorating your home. Blues and browns, purples and greens, earthy tones, pastels and even fun, bright colors work perfectly with the green and blues and yellows currently seen throughout the Appleton, Wisconsin area.
The Schmitz family received a complimentary family session after one of their sons senior sessions and before he left for college. The oldest son, serving in the military, also returned home to Appleton for this once in a lifetime family photograph.

I know what you're thinking, we're just sooo busy with school starting, fall sports, closing the cottage for the season, the list is endless of why you should just keep putting family photography off. But I want to share with you some reasons why right now, this week, this month, this year is the perfect time for your family to gather together to be photographed. You see, things happen. We don't plan for them, many times we don't want them, but things happen. Right now there are Appleton Families packing up their newly graduated seniors and driving them around the state and beyond to their new temporary home. And chances are, their family will never be the same. Sure that student might move back for the summer, but the next thing you know, they're off, getting married and starting a family of their own. And wouldn't an Appleton family photography portrait session by M. C. Kinney Photography be the perfect way to remember your family as they are now?
The Schmitz family firmly believes in hosting International students and added their 'brother' from Spain for a few images to commemorate his time spent with their family. 

Another advantage of having Family Photography done this time of year I've already touched on, but is the temperature. If you are considering an extended family photography session or are a young family with small children, it sounds romantic and whimsical to have that done in the fall colors, but the reality is it's cold. And small children don't do well in the cold without coats and mittens.  Their noses turn red, they get cranky, then dad gets's not a good thing. But right now, before the temperatures take a turn, it's still pleasant and comfortable for everyone. The children will be happier longer, and that usually means more time to get more variety and turn it into a fun, playful event instead of a rushed, unhappy experience.
