Halloween is a great photo-taking opportunity! Bright costumes and beautiful scenery combine to provide you with the potential to take beautiful and memorable photos.
One Halloween tradition in our family is getting a picture of my daughter Lauren in her costume in the same spot on our porch every year. This allows me to create a sort of photographic timeline, chronicling her growth and the way her taste in costumes has changed over the years.
Digital cameras are great for taking these fall pictures, especially since you can fix a lot of photo goofs. For example, if you forget to zoom in on your subject you can always crop and zoom in later. If you're using a digital camera, make sure to use the red-eye reduction feature (you don't want your child to look too spooky, after all!).
When I'm scrapbooking my Halloween photos, I like to include in my journaling why and how my child chose the costume she's wearing. Reminders of how long it took your child to decide on just the right costume (or how many times they changed their mind) will make the pictures that much more memorable later on.
