The sunlight in September is perfection. It makes me want to quote Nathaniel Hawthorn's thoughts on this most beautiful month: 

"I cannot endure to waste anything so 

precious as autumnal sunshine 

by staying in the house." 

Nor can I, Nathaniel, nor can I. I'm taking every opportunity to be out of doors without a winter coat right now. September is a wonderful time for senior portraits in Connecticut because we still have the late summer flowers looking bright and colorful. Check out the portraits below with the zinnia's and sunflowers, two of my favorite September blooming flowers. The light has softened a bit and isn't as harsh and strong as it was in heat of the summer. I love capturing the sunshine in the strands of my subject's hair and the golden setting sun lighting up eyes and smiles. 


This artistic senior wanted a mixture of the formal setting of the European style gardens, colorful flowers, and a few portraits along the oceans edge. Luckily, in coastal Connecticut we can enjoy all those elements in one place. 


Okay, one more quote I love about September from a book I enjoyed years ago, Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner. 

“That old September feeling, left over from school days, of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air 

... Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year's mistakes had been wiped clean by summer.” 

Unfortunately, September is all booked up but I do have two more fall session openings for Connecticut seniors. October is another month I could wax poetically all day long about, so book a session with me and let's enjoy the jubilant fall leaves for outdoor senior portraits! We'll make Nathaniel Hawthorn proud that we're getting out and enjoying a beautiful autumn afternoon!
