Pumpkin Patch at Reegers in Indiana County PA + Halloween Costumes

October can be a tough time for photographers….it’s what we like to call “busy season”. It’s often hard to carve out (see what I did there) time with our own families in between photographing other people’s families, editing and shooting weddings….it’s prime season because everyone wants the “pretty leaves”. October is also the month that kind of kicks off all of the Holiday festivities. It’s Mallory’s birthday month, the pumpkin carving, halloween/trick or treating and then BOOM…right into Thanksgiving and Christmas. If we get behind in editing, it means we get to spend even less time with our own families during the holidays months in order to make the deadlines. So I covet these moments and these moments with my family.

This year everything is different. Sure, we had Levi last year at this time, but he was basically a lump. haha! He didn’t do much and had no idea what was going on. Now that he’s almost one and half, he is more fun……also MORE on the go, but it will make this holiday season a little more special. Us parents live vicariously thru our kids during the holidays and everything becomes magical again. We experienced a “first” as a family of four and that was our trip to the pumpkin patch at Reeger’s Farm. It was hot, and Levi was on the go go go…but he rode on his first hay ride, went to his first pumpkin patch and picked out his first pumpkin.

The fun didn’t stop there, we hauled them home and carved them…and then played dress up with our halloween costumes!

He loved it so much he tried to escape to play with them! We had to put up the baby gate! HAHAHA
