The rich colors and textures of fall create amazing photographs. Many scrapbookers create a special album (or mini album) for their fall photos. Consider creating a Halloween album to document costumes over the years. A Gratitude book for Thanksgiving is a good place to count your blessings each Thanksgiving. A camouflage album for your hunters is a great place to capture each years hunting successes.
Here are some fall photo and page ideas that you might consider. Print out the list and highlight the ones that you want to remember to capture.

Taking some time to plan your photo idea ahead of time will assure that you have the perfect shots for your scrapbook. Sure candid shots are always wonderful but some of the best layouts come from pre-planned photo ideas.
I have always enjoyed having a Trick-or-Treat scrapbook. In that album you can watch my children grow and see the costumers they chose each year.
Happy Fall Scrapbooking!
