Every season is enjoyable to photograph and I truly love capturing the essence of the season and what it means to me. But there is just something about Autumn that touches my heart and makes me smile. The other day I went out on a walk with my family in the neighborhood and this is where I first started seeing the leaves beginning to change colors. I drafted the assistance of my husband to help with this photo :)

In hindsight, I wish I had used my macro lens here rather than the telephoto that was on my camera for the walk. But sometimes capturing the moment is more important than missing opportunities to go back for a different lens. So just be prepared for many more leaf photos and I plan on getting some nice macro shots where you can see the detail much better!
I am sitting here typing away in the middle of the night with a sick little boy on my lap. He brightened up when I added this photo and remembered when we took it together. Technicality is important, especially in photography, but the emotional attachment is also equally important.
Happy Shooting <3
