In Search of Pumpkins

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons, I love watching the leaves change color as the months go by and winter suddenly approaches. I haven't had much time to really soak up the season, I want pumpkin spice candles and hot cider and scary movies, but instead seemed to be bogged down with work. This shoot was my way to enjoy the last bit of fall, before Halloween. I planned this shoot in anticipation of bright warm toned hues and fields of pumpkins, and I was not disappointed! In Half Moon Bay we wandered and stopped at a few pumpkin patches, running around and shooting these 3 looks. The first look, we weren't planning on it as our destination but I saw the teepee from the freeway and knew we had to stop for a photo op. Bless the Bay Area and its perfect foggy soft lighting! I am so happy with how these photos came out and how my styling came together, and hope this is the first of many for my blog posts!
