September Is Picture Time: 5 Reasons Why

Share the ♥︎ ---

September is picture time. Okay, I’ll admit it. As a Marlboro family photographer, every month in my world is picture time. That said, September really is ideal.

I have a question. Does September feel like the start of a new year for you too? Without a doubt, New Year’s Eve is December 31st – and I love all the fun and celebrations that come along with it. Who doesn’t? Whether you go out, celebrate at a house party, or stay home in your PJs and cook dinner with friends and family, New Year’s is a holiday we all can share.

That said, for me September 1st always seems like New Year’s Day to me. I know the holiday of Rosh Hashana (the Jewish new year) often falls in September (or early October) – but that’s not it. I think it’s more of a mom thing. If you know, you know.

Regardless of what the weather people say, in this professional photographer’s (and mom’s) mind, the official end of summer is September 1st – and thus the new year. For me, the new school year was almost more monumental than flipping the calendar. So much changed and there was so much to enjoy. New teachers, new clothes, and lots of school supplies. (I admit it, I love lots and lots of pens!!) Undoubtedly, it’s a time to remember.

10 Reasons Why September is Picture Time

  1. It’s a time of new “firsts“: While your IPhone’s first day of school pics are great – wouldn’t it be amazing to have a family picture marking the beginning of the new school year?
  2. Kids look great: For some reason, our kids look the very best in September. They still have that healthy glow from a summer of outdoor activities – but they also have new haircuts!!
  3. Time is on your side: The first couple of weekends of September are likely the quietest ones you will have for a while. Sports, dance, gymnastics, birthday parties, and events will soon fill your calendar. Take advantage of the time you have together.
  4. Perfect weather: Typically, September weather is spectacular. It’s no longer 90 and humid, but not yet frigid and cold. We can do an outdoor family photoshoot!
  5. Location options: This time of year probably provides the most variety for photo locations. We can still take family beach photos, but can also visit a park or a farm, or even your own backyard. It’s the perfect month for outdoor pictures.
