Elmwood Park in the Fall

It's that time of the year when we start preparing for the holiday season. We have pictures taken, determine our holiday budget, set-up our holiday photo cards, update our address book, and list down our holiday gift list.

Fall foliage is gorgeous here in the Midwest and I knew we had to take advantage of the breathtaking trees in red, orange, purple, and green before the first snowfall -- which will probably take place in a couple of weeks.

So grateful to stumble upon Shutter Impact on our local Craigslist. For a really affordable fee, we can get outdoor photos taken and have the CD of all the shots.

It was way cheaper than getting our portraits taken at the regular family photo studio. And surprisingly, cheaper than fees in photo studios in Manila.

(Our last photo studio experience in Papillion, NE was not too pleasant. I loved that we got the pictures we wanted but the staff was less than friendly. And my father-in-law paid much more than what Shutter Impact charges.)

Tyler and Dave of Shutter Impact suggested Elmwood Park by Leavenworth Street in Omaha. They could not have picked a better place for the photos that we wanted! It was just rows and rows of trees that speak "autumn!" I will definitely go back there again for my own little quiet time.

It was such a pleasure working with them. They were very patient and made sure we got all the shots that we wanted. If you are thinking of getting some family photos taken for the holidays, do get in touch with them on their Facebook page. You will love the results, I promise you!

Our fall photos in Elmwood Park (Omaha, NE). Thank you Shutter Impact!

How about you: 
What are the first few things that you do to prepare for the holiday season?
