As all hallows eve draws near, families come together to watch football (go Lions!), eat yummy cinnamon donuts, drink warm apple cider, sew costumes, and carve pumpkins. Last weekend, I set out to find a not too big, not too small, but the perfect pumpkin along with some of Scott's family and we had a few scary characters cross our path along the way.
Halloween is a really amazing time to capture lifestyle pictures of the family as it is natural to be doing things together! Going out and searching for the great pumpkin or dressing up in this years costume or even attending a spooky forest trail are all wonderful photography opportunities and make priceless memories last forever. So make sure to take your camera along on your next family adventure!
We had lots of fun at the Huron Turkey Farm located in Romulus, Michigan where they have some creepy decor and fun, family oriented activities that bring out the very best of this fall season. They have a few animals around the property like goats, chickens, llamas, and ostriches as well as pony rides and a halloween maze.
The main attraction. The pumpkins! At the very front of the farm, you come across this prime hunting ground for your ideal orange gourd with convenient wagons for hauling them or young children around in.
Maria had a good conversation and laugh with this pony as he was taking his lunch break.
There is a lot to look at and discover as you walk around this turkey farm (which makes it awesome for capturing real moments).
Outside the main building, your nose is pleasantly welcomed by the appetizing smell of cinnamon and apples. They have fresh, scrumptious treats and drinks available for purchase but beware, there are some pretty scary characters lurking and hanging around the inside of this place.
My pumpkin! I picked one out for myself to carve that was of a perfectly cute roundness and festive orange hue.
The carving portion of the night was pretty messy and sticky but it was all in good fun as the whole family reflected on halloweens past.
Nurse, scalpel. . . and ice cream scoop.
Happy Halloween! I think my kitty face turned out pretty well if I do say so myself although my hand was so sore/tired but it was worth it to spend time with people I love.
