3 of my favorite Gainesville fall locations!

Three of my favorite activities to do in Gainesville happen in October – Gator Football,  Coon Hollo Corn Maze and the Alachua County Fair!  It’s finally starting to cool down and is much more comfortable for family photographs.  These  locations are perfect for capturing fun and unique family lifestyle photographs – that will truly show off your family’s spirit and personality.

Looking for fun, color, excitement – the fair is the place! I photographed photographer Shannon Whitaker’s family at the  Fair and we had a BLAST! I just love how these images show off the wacky personalities of this great family.  The Alachua County Fair is going on from October23rd through the 31st.   Ideally – the best time to schedule is about an hour before sunset – the light will just be gorgeous!



If Fall is your thing and you like vintage farm trucks, hay, pumpkins, and lots of orange – then Coon Hollo Corn Maze is the place to be.  I just love this place – I go every year with my family and I’ve done a few sessions there. I am scheduling Full Sessions Monday-Thursday for the month of October only.  We get the place to ourselves – and this year Coon Hollo will have a sunflower field!


If the Gators are your thing – let’s visit the Swamp!  Dress in your Orange and Blue and show off your Gator pride!! These will make great family portraits for the family that loves Florida football!  We’ll take a few in front of the stadium too – and of course at Albert and Alberta.  I only have graduation pictures to show you examples – but you get the idea – just imagine your family under the Gator sign!!



A private 60 minute Full session at either one of these locations is $495  and include all of the digital files plus a 11 x 14 matted art print of your choice. If you have had a session with me before – you get to take $45 off! The turn-around time is 7 days – plenty of time to get your own prints and gifts ordered.  I highly recommend getting your photographs printed  over at www.mpix.com – they  offer amazing holiday cards, books, and unique photography gifts – and their turnaround time is usually within 24 hours!

Dates are limited and are paid in full to secure your spot.  If you are interested in having a session just send me an email at laurel@laurelhousden.com.  and I will send you all the details.
