Few occasions provide more fun photo-taking opportunities than Halloween –and great Halloweens start with the quest for the perfect Jack-O-Lantern. This year, capture your family’s shenanigans with a photo book that starts in the pumpkin patch and ends with the costumed festivities.
Start by taking pictures of your trip to the pumpkin patch, whether it’s out to the backyard garden or off to the countryside for a day trip. Then capture the photos of carving day and, finally, the lighting of your masterpiece. On Halloween night, don’t forget to take photos of your own little “pumpkins” dressed as witches, goblins, bunnies or princesses – the excitement on their faces will create countless opportunities for the perfect shot!
When you’re ready to create your book, select the Storybook theme. Combine your Halloween photos with anecdotes from pumpkin-picking day and quotes from your costumed clan to capture the excitement forever.
Highlight your colorful story against lively custom backgrounds you create using your own pumpkin photos. You can make great backgrounds from photos of the pumpkin patch itself, the orange skin of your pumpkin, the pumpkin vines, or the inside of the pumpkin once you have opened it up. Follow these instructions to add your own backgrounds to your book.
Your pumpkin patch story makes a great gift for grandparents and other out-of-town admirers – and a timeless storybook you can pull out each autumn to share with your kids as they grow up.
