October. Time to get spooky.

I meant busy, obviously. It's time to get busy.

Here in the Upper Ohio Valley, October seems to be the most popular month for photo sessions and weddings. Everyone wants those rich golds and vibrant oranges. The weather instantly cools over with the pumpkin spice scented breeze. People start to break out their boots and oversized sweaters. We all love October. Some love it for the aforementioned things and the coming of the holidays, while others love it for the month-long opportunity to do all things Halloween. My kids are excited to be trick-or-treating as their favorite Disney princesses! Still have to find costumes for the boy and myself (Rich isn't thrilled on dressing up).

For me, October is a full calendar. Between harvest festivals and weddings, there's something exciting every day this month. I love it! I love s'mores, bonfires, pumpkin patches, costume parties, the Adams' Family, weddings...

I'll be busy running around taking pictures and enjoying the harvest events with my family. Do you need something fun to do with your family, significant other, or friends? Here are some things going on in October:
