Fall Bucket List

The fall season is a magical time! The leaves changing, the crisp weather, the comfort food, I could go on and on. Everyone loves fall (what’s not to love!) and it’s a great time to slow down before the holiday madness creeps up on us. To make sure you get the most out of this fall season, I put together a fun Fall Bucket List for you! Pick a few items and make sure you cross them off your list this fall! 


  1. Go on a hike when the leaves begin to change colors. 
  2. Go to a football game and wear your team’s colors. 
  3. Buy some mums and pumpkins to decorate your home for fall. 
  4. Make a new soup recipe for the family.
  5. Buy some new fall scented candles. 
  6. Go to a pumpkin patch.
  7. Go apple picking. 
  8. Drink apple cider or make an apple cider cocktail.
  9. Get a pumpkin spice latte. 
  10. Have a bonfire and invite friends over.
  11. Make a fall DIY craft. 
  12. Get some new cozy sweaters for your fall wardrobe. 
  13. Make a little fall gift basket for a friend or family member. 
  14. Try out a new fall nail color. 
  15. Plan a fall photoshoot with Elaine Gates Photography! 


I hope this gives you a good start to your fall bucket list. Of course, I had to sneak in that last item. Fall is a great time to plan family portraits because the scenery is beautiful and the weather isn’t too chilly yet. Plus, you can get your holiday card pictures done early! If you are ready to book your next photo session, contact Elaine Gates Photography today to pick a date! Happy fall, everyone! I hope this season is everything you want it to be and more!
